Memorial services for David Bruce, age 63, of Mora, will be held Monday, November 28, 2016 at 11 AM at Peterson-Johnson Funeral Home in Milaca with Rev. Marlin Harris officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the funeral home on Monday. A private family interment will take place at a later date. David Dean Bruce was born July 1, 1953 in Princeton, Minnesota to Gerald and Joyce (Hammill) Bruce. Dave spent 45 years as a truck driver, proud to have never caused a single accident. He loved tinkering around the yard and garage, where he spent a lot of time working on cars while listening to classic country music. His brothers were his best friends all his life, and he often spent time working on cars with them and exchanging mostly true stories after a day of hunting during deer camp each season. Dave married in 1983 and had two children, Jennifer and Jonathon. He was a proud father who loved seeing his children grow up to be loving and successful people who began starting families of their own. He was a devoted husband to his soul mate, Susie (Marcotte) Bruce, who he married in 2011. Together they enjoyed the simplicities in life, the same quick wit, and The History Channel. They shared an unquestionable ever-lasting love for each other. Dave is survived by his wife Susan, children Jennifer (Darrin), Jonathon (Amy); grandchildren, Bryce (4) and Pammie (16); siblings, Gary, Mark, Trudy, Jim, Mary, Dale, Cathy, Judy, and Patty. He was preceded in death by parents, Gerald and Joyce; brothers, Scott and Randy; and sister, Peggy.
