Surviving are his loving wife, Catherine (Plum), of 46 years, and their three children; daughters, Dawn (Theodore) Kasner, and Dana (Andrew) Harmic; son, David (Lisa) Wagner; seven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
Bruce proudly served our country for 21 years in the U.S. Navy as a jet mechanic working on the A-6 Intruder, P-3 Orion, and S-3 Viking aircraft. He served aboard the USS Coral Sea (CVA-43), USS Forrestal (CV-59), USS Saratoga (CV-60), and USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) cruising to locations including Australia, Egypt, Iceland, Italy, and Spain.
After retirement from the Navy in 1993, Bruce obtained his CDL license and became a fleet fuel truck driver, retiring in 2016. Bruce was an avid Nascar fan, watching races every weekend, and even attending a few Daytona 500 events.
Bruce was a loving husband, father, grandfather (Pop Pop), and great-grandfather. He will be deeply missed.
The family will hold a celebration of life at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Lung Association (lung.org).
