Bruce C. Englund

In Memorial

50, of Sun City, Arizona passed away unexpectedly on January 4, 2013 after falling at a cardiac rehabilitation center, where he was recovering from a quadruple heart bypass that took place on December 26, 2012. Born in Watertown, South Dakota on September 27, 1962 to Ed and Helene Englund and formerly of Billings, Montana, he then enjoyed 26 years in the Valley of the Sun. He worked many years as a respected employee of JC Penny’s as a customer service supervisor. Bruce was a loyal friend, son and brother with a special gift for brightening the lives of those around him. A lifelong diabetic who never let it bring his attitude down, he was a compassionate, creative, witty and truly unique soul.

Bruce was the youngest of six children and is survived by brothers David, John and Brian; also by his beloved sister Jane and family which he shared house with in Goodyear, Arizona, as well as his best friend, Judy Anderson and family. He is preceded by both parents and sister Diane, who had donated a kidney to him in 2000. Bruce will be laid to rest in Sedona, Arizona, a place he visited often and planned on living someday. Cards and donations for a memorial plaque and burial can be sent to Jane Pascoe, 16189 W. Hualapai St, Goodyear AZ 85338. A photo memorial will be added to Bruce’s Facebook account later in the month.

    Bruce, little did we know that night
    God was going to call your name,
    In Life we loved you dearly
    In death we do the same.
    It broke our hearts to lose you
    You did not go alone,
    For part of us went with you
    The day God called you home.
    You left us beautiful memories
    Your love is still our guide,
    And although we cannot see you
    You are always at our side.
    Our family chain is broken
    And nothing seems the same,
    But as God calls us one by one
    The chain will link again.
    Love you and miss my brother Bruce! The John Englund Family

    This is a little surreal for me, especially since you & I were Facebooking in December. To lose 2 of my best friends from high school (you & David) way too soon… You will always have a portion of my heart, dear friend. I love you dearly & will miss you always.

    Bruce….God’s plan is perfect though hard when we want to understand. I am so very thankful to Him for your friendship. We will re-unite! Thank you for the good times had while growing up and for the times spent talking on FaceBook. You are special and in a MUCH better place. :). Love you and miss you for now.

    Jane & family,

    I am so sorry to find about Bruce’s passing. I have very fond memories of traveling through Montana with you Jane, Brian & Bruce and your folks, in your motor home. What a special young boy Bruce was, so full of fun! He was blessed with a sweet, kind soul.

    I pray that God has given you all peace and comfort in your loss.

    My sympathies,

    Carol Kosovich Anderson
