He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.
Bruce was a family man and extremely proud of his children and grandchildren. He loved snowmobiling, Packer games, watching the Brewers, camping, boating, fancy cars, ice cream and his dogs. In his earlier years, Bruce was a member of the Holy Name Society and usher at Holy Cross Church. He had a long career as a mechanical draftsman at Allis Chalmers. He then worked for Clever Brooks, Combustion Systems and UPS. He was a self-taught craftsman and enjoyed doing many projects for his family and friends. During the course of his life he designed and built a family cottage and then his own home, which provides wonderful memories.
Bruce’s sole purpose was watching his families grow and enjoy life.
