Bruce S. Andrews, 72, died at home in Corvallis, Oregon on November 21, 2020, of pancreatic cancer.  He grew up in West Hartford, CT, came to California to go to college, and then moved to Oregon.  He worked for the US Forest Service in Wallowa County; was United Methodist Pastor in Tygh Valley, Joseph, Shedd, and Halsey, and worked at Garland Nursery in Corvallis.  He leaves a well-tended orchard and garden, along with his extensive collection of specialty conifers and petrified wood.  Bruce married Mary Hallyburton in 1986; after she died in 1994, he married her good friend, Gail Glick, in 1997.  In addition to Gail, Bruce is survived by two sisters and their children, along with Gail’s and Mary’s brothers, nieces, and nephews.  Bruce’s ashes will be spread in the waters off Maui where he and Gail spent their winters.  Arrangements are being handled by Crown Memorial Center of Salem.
