Rufus Rudolph BraggIt is with great sadness that the loved ones

of Rufus Bragg announce his passing

on June 5, 2018, at the age of 60 years.

Rufus was born on July 23, 1957 in Alexandria,

Virginia. He spent most of his childhood in the

Washington D.C. area, until 1969, when he went

to Boys Town in Nebraska, where he stayed until

1977. From 1977-1979, he attended Chadron

State College in Nebraska. During this time he

also joined the National Guard on October 13,

1977, in which he served until October 12, 1983.

After his college experience in Nebraska,

Rufus moved to Oregon in 1979, and began

working for Timber Lake Job Corps, where he

worked until he retired in 2010. Many people in

the Estacada community also know Rufus from

his many years of coaching both Middle School

Wrestling and High School Football, between

1986 and 2018. The work Rufus did with athletes

in the Estacada area has touched countless lives,

and ensures he will live on through the spirit of

service to others that he has modeled for them.

There will be Catholic Services held on

Friday, June 22nd at 11:00 AM, at Saint Aloysius

Catholic Church, and a celebration of Rufus's

life will be held at 2:00PM, on Saturday, June

23, at the Estacada High School Commons.
