Bobby Lee Bruce

March 16, 1954-June 19, 2021


To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what has been planted....

                  Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 



Bobby Lee Bruce was born on March 16, 1954, to the late Lillie Mae Bruce. Upon his mother’s death family members Minnie Bruce and William Baker and later Ike and Bertha Bruce continued to care for him.


Upon completion of high school, Bobby enlisted in the United States Army and was honorably discharged at the end of his tour of service. 

He lived and worked in Tallahassee FL, and then in 1979 he moved with his family to Clearwater, FL. where he later retired from the City of Safety harbor.

On Saturday June 19th, 2021, at his residence in Palm Harbor, FL, God called Bobby to come home and rest. Although Bobby had been ill for several years, he did not allow his illness to be the focus of his life. He spent the last few years enjoying restoring his 69 Camaro with his daughter Wynter. 

Bobby leaves to cherish his memories…..
