Rufus Bragg

July 23, 1957 — June 5, 2018

It 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.
