Bruce Edward Ross, age 65, of Coopersville, Michigan, made his transition to the heavens on Friday, January 8, 2021.  He was born February 7, 1955, in Grand Rapids, to the late Marshall and Beulah (Johnson) Ross.  Bruce proudly served his country in the United States Army from 1973 to 1976 with the 82nd Airborne Division.  He was a member of the UAW, working for Delphi Automotive in Coopersville for over two decades.

Bruce was a lover of loud classic rock music, golfing with friends and family, watching and/or going to sporting events, the outdoors, and dogs.

Bruce was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Stephen; sister, Bonnie; brother-in-law, Phillip; and his three dogs.

Bruce loved his family and friends dearly and would give anyone the shirt off of his back if needed. He will forever be remembered as an amazing dad, grandfather, brother, and friend to so many.

    I will forever cherish the memories I have with Bruce, I never expected at the age of 15 that He would end up being a huge part of my life for the rest of his life He became a second dad to me and was always there for me no matter what especially when my dad passed away.
    Bruce was such a blessing to all those who knew him.
    His laugh will forever play over and over in my head & the funny memories i have with him will always stick.
    I wish i could tell him one more time just how thankful I am and will always be for him.
