He left this earth on May 5, 2019 at the age of 59.  Bruce was a Boy Scout and graduated from Granite High School. He loved camping, water skiing, his Maico dirt bike and just being in the outdoors. He lived for big diesel trucks and was well known as one of the best diesel mechanics in Utah. Before becoming a diesel mechanic, he did drywall and stone/tile masonry.  Lizzy (as he called her) and Bruce were married over 31 years and she was everything to him.
