Bruce was a traveling showman for 42 years, providing food and entertainment at carnivals and events across the United States, often boasting that he made the best “Sammich” on the midway. More recently he began working at Walmart here in Sidney. Even though he only worked there for a short time he made many friends, and Bruce was well known for treating his friends like family. He was an avid Ohio State, Cincinnati Reds, and Cincinnati Bengals fan. He also loved looking to the stars and sharing “out of this world” experiences with the neighbor kids. He loved his dogs, Mario and Luigi, and though he may never actually admit this, he was a closet cat daddy. All who knew Bruce could see the light and love that he shared. He truly loved his friends and family and will be missed greatly.
Family will be receiving friends Thursday, January 23, 2020 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at Adams Funeral Home, 1401 Fair Road, Sidney.
