Bruce Jr was an avid Boston sports fan with a special affinity for the Bruins. He loved fishing, auto mechanics, being on the water and going to sporting events. He was a happy-go-lucky guy, goofy at times, funny, who enjoyed laughing and making others laugh. As a youngster, He participated in many sports including Rockland Little League playing second base and leadoff hitter on the Rockland Firefighters team.

After High School Bruce Jr went to the Baystate School of Technology where he earned a diploma in HVAC & Refrigeration.

Bruce Jr will be remembered by those who knew him best as a likable, friendly yet quiet guy. He loved life and his family. Helooked for adventure, listened to loud music and had fun doing it. His struggles led him to embrace Jesus Christ where he found comfort and hope. I will miss our long conversations about life and God. I will miss His signature greeting, “Hey Dad” when I answered his phone calls or when I visited him. We will all miss his contagious laugh and deep blues eyes.

I’m grateful that I had the chance to talk with him the day before he left us. The conversation ended in the same way italways did, Goodbye Dad, I love you and I’ll see ya soon,Goodbye Bruce, I love you too, and I’ll be seeing you soon!

The Metcalf family invites friends and loved ones to celebrate Bruce’s life in the Magoun-Biggins Funeral Home on Thursday, August 3, from 4:00-7:00 PM.

    I remember Bruce and Missy from school days, though I havent see either in over 20yrs. I remember enough to know Bruce always had a smile on his face and was kind. I wanted to give my condolences to his entire family, especially the adorable son I saw in the photo. Such a nice guy taken too soon. I lost my brother to addiction and myself have been in recovery for 13yrs, so my heart hurts a little more when I read about people, even more people I did know, lose their battle. My prayers are with his entire family. Fly free, Bruce.
