Bruce E. Sundermann
September 30, 1947- October 4, 2020
Bruce E. Sundermann, age 73, of California, Maryland passed away peacefully at home on October 4, 2020. He is loved and missed by his brother Timothy Scott (Carol), sisters Leslie Collica, Susan Sundermann, Melissa Foye (Dave), his nieces and nephews Jennifer Broderick (Bill), Jim Collica (Lynnie), Carolyn Parker (Michael), Michael Foye (Kara), Amy Haselwood (Isaac), Mathew Scott, and seven great-nieces and nephews.
Bruce was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland. He attended Georgia Tech before enlisting in the Navy, serving two years aboard the U.S.S. John F. Kennedy. This led to his lifelong career as a defense contractor; he spent years working on the base at Patuxent Naval Air Station on many projects involving his beloved F-14 fighter jets and others before retiring in 2018. He enjoyed reading, photography (especially aircraft), rooting for the Yellow Jackets and DC sports teams, and creating elaborate prank gifts for his family members.
He will be interred at Cheltenham Veteran’s Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
