From his obituary: Bruce Crocker CAMPBELL of Bellevue, Washington, passed away peacefully on November 29, 2011 at the age of 89. Bruce was born on July 24, 1922 in Los Angeles, Ca. He graduated from Los Angeles High School in 1941, worked for a time at Douglas Aircraft, then joined the Marines in 1944, serving in the South Pacific during WWII. After the war, he enrolled at the University of Washington, where he was a member of the Chi Psi fraternity and held down a job at the UW Wind Tunnel until graduating in 1949. It was at the UW where he met his lifelong “sweetheart” and wife of 62 years, Nan (Phelps). They were married on December 17, 1949 and settled on Lake Sammamish in Bellevue, where he lovingly built the first floor of the family home. Bruce had a lifelong passion for aviation, aircraft, and flight. He worked at the Boeing Company for 39 years, flew small aircraft whenever he could, and worked on his own home-built experimental plane until he was no longer able to. An avid outdoorsman, Bruce enjoyed many seasons of hunting pheasant in Eastern Washington with friends and explored much of the Pacific Northwest hiking with family. He is preceded in death by his parents Olga and Ray, sister Jean (Wiggins), and son Roger. He is survived and will be greatly missed by his wife Nan, daughters Ann and Patty, granddaughters Zoey and Emma, brother Doug, and countless family and friends.
