    Notes 
    • Autumn Funerals, Cremation & Burial, Tigard, Oregon: "Obituary: Richard Alton Bracken
      July 20 1938-December 3 2014

      Rich was born in Eureka, California and was preceded in death by his parents, Lloyd and Margaret Bracken. He is survived by his wife, Barbara Darling Bracken; daughters Monica Bracken (Marisa Halvorson), Linda Bracken (John Tondini and grandchildren Jacob and Sarah), Shelley Hertzke (Steven) and their mother Vera Taylor; sister Pat Martin; nephew Mark Fontana (Mira Mateev), niece Lisa Paxton (Guy and boys Joe and Nick), nephew Neil Martin (Crystal and Reece and Koa), niece Kristy Walker (Isaac and girls Maile and Reyna); sister-in-law Dottie Pless (Reiner and Robert and Monica), brother-in-law Steve Darling (Kathy and son Brandon, Katelyn and Jackson). Rich was loved by this entire family and relished the time to be together to celebrate their joys and lives.

      Rich’s primary career was with Sears in retail management. Upon retirement from Sears, he decided to try his hand in real estate, and enjoyed five years with ReMax Realty. An opportunity to return to retail arose, and he then again was in management at Old Navy for two years before permently retiring. He took great pride and was very dedicated to his fellowship service at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. Rich was an avid enthusiast of the Seattle Mariners, Seahawks and Fantasy Football. He and his wife Barbara enjoyed many travels throughout Europe, but his great relaxation spot was at the Oregon coast where he and Barbara raised their glass of wine, shared the joys before them and toasted, “cheers to the day.”

      In lieu of flowers, donations to the American Cancer Society emphasizing Glandular Cancer Research would be appreciated."
