Bruce was born on September 25, 1929 in Merryville, LA. He resided there until he joined the US Army and served his country in White Sands, NM at Nike Missile Site. He worked and raised his family in Clute, TX but returned to Merryville after his retirement. Bruce had a servant’s heart and helped many people throughout his life. He was a member of The United Methodist Church and The Masonic Lodge #329. Bruce had an ear for music and could play anything on the guitar but also many other instruments. He loved everything about cars; watching races, auctions, working on them, especially driving them…fast! His garden was second to none. But his family was always first.
Memorial Service arrangements are pending. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to his church, First United Methodist Church in Merryville P.O. Box 292 Merryville, LA 70653.
