Bruce K. Eastham, age 81 of Sunbury passed away unexpectedly Friday, September 19, 2014 at Grady Memorial Hospital.
He was born on December 15, 1932 in Decatur, Illinois to the late Kermit and Helen (Peckert) Eastham. A US Army Veteran, he served during the Korean War. A talented musician in his younger years he played both the Accordion and Vibraphone. He retired after 38 years as a computer specialist with the Defense Logistics Agency.
