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.Print Obituary & Condolences
