He was born in Grand Rapids, MI, on June 26, 1952, to the late Forest and Ruth (Baker) Linscott.  Bruce graduated from Godwin Heights High School with the class of 1970, and went on to marry his former wife, Laurie Briggs. He worked for GM for several years.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Ruth and Forest Linscott and his brothers, Donald and Dave Linscott. 

Years ago, Bruce began organizing annual Thanksgiving Eve Godwin Get Togethers for classmates.  This event has since been re-named in his honor and has grown to include numerous classes. 

A celebration of Bruce’s Life will be held in Grand Rapids (location to be announced at a later date) from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday, November 27, 2019.  Family will likely also attend the Bruce Linscott Annual Thanksgiving Get Together.
