Bruce Robert Sherbondy

HOMER, ALASKA - Bruce Robert Sherbondy, 57, of Homer, Alaska, a loving father, died of cancer Saturday, Oct. 13.

Bruce wished to be cremated without funeral or services, as his wishes were to be remembered for the life he lived. Peninsula Memorial Chapel of Kenai, Alaska, handled arrangements.

He was born in Denver in Rocky Mountain Hospital on July 22, 1955.

Bruce was always a strong adventurous man who traveled all of the U.S. and parts of Mexico and Canada. He loved to ski as a teenager in the mountains of Colorado, hunting deer and elk with his father and his only brother, and he later shared his passion for the outdoors with his children and grandchildren. Bruce commercial fished in Florida, dairy farmed in Minnesota in his twenties and then later in his forties, with his family, alfalfa farmed in Montana, and administrated/owned assisted living homes in Washington and Montana, and he finally retired in Alaska, where he had dreamed of the final chapter of a full life of many adventures he shared with his family. His biggest passion was his children. He will be greatly missed by his family.

He is survived by his mother, Louella; uncle Ralph; brother Eugene; nephew Blue; first wife Linda Robertson and their children, Renee, Craig and Brian; son Blake; second wife Lisa and their daughter Leslie; and grandchildren Darien,cq Savannah, Brandon, Shyloe,cq and James.

He was an amazing man who loved his children very much. We love you dad and will always love you.
