Walter Bruce Ohl

January 8, 1963 — April 15, 2024

Simi Valley

Bruce Walter Ohl, age 61, formally of Simi Valley, CA, passed away Monday, April 15, 2024. Bruce completed his education in Simi Valley with some college. 

He worked in residential and commercial construction. He is survived by his father, Elmer Ohl, his sister and her husband, Brenda and Ken Wells, brother and his wife, Brian and Cori Ohi, daughter Casandra Krisatis and his three grandchildren, Lila, Calista and James. He has 4 nieces and 4 nephews; Baylie, Benjamin, Peyton, Pierson, Carson, Madyn, Marley and Broxton. 

He has a short bout with aggressive cancer. His father, Elmer, daughter Casandra, her mom Kathy and myself (Brenda) spent the last several days with him. Bruce was surrounded with deep love and engulfed in peace upon leaving this place. May God rest his soul. 

Bruce always had a smile and moment for all people he encountered. He had a knack for seeing others just as they are. 

Anyone that knew Bruce, knew he had struggles in life. He was independent by nature and refused to burden anyone. Even in his end times there was conflict in pushing the nurse's Call button. In Simi Adventist Hospital's nurses' station, they had a white board that said "Who is your favorite patient today?" There was the name BRUCE about 10 times. 

He wanted to get back to work. He just wanted to finish his treatment to get back to work. He said it several times. "Work." He felt needed and wanted. For Bruce, this was everything. His father, Elmer, taught him everything he knew along with Tony and Jimmy, whom brought Bruce into a beautiful place of being his OWN man. 

Bruce has his after hours family of Pokemon Go comrades as well. There was a common thread between them in hunting Pokemon that blossomed into a care and concern for each other. The love and acceptance between them is extraordinary. 

Bruce also loved to race soapbox derby cars when he was a teen. He enjoyed making his own car to race. He was always respectful and a true gentleman. The love he gave out was immeasurable. 

He had many talents, such as playing his bass guitar, building things, teaching our children and making old ladies smile. He will be deeply missed by all!
