Bruce attended school in Kenosha. Bruce loved the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. He loved animals and raised chickens for a hobby. He liked repairing small engines. He mowed lawns for people and loved talking and being with his friends. He enjoyed music of all kinds especially country and enjoyed singing and felt comfortable singing karaoke. Bruce owned and operated a palette business in Kenosha and also worked security for many businesses.
