Bruce was born June 14, 1951, in Los Angeles, Calif., to Robert and Jeanne Williams. He graduated from Chatsworth High School, Chatsworth, Calif., in 1969, where he was a defensive tackle on the football team and a home-run hitter on the baseball team.

Bruce loved sports and especially liked to have friends join him to watch football on TV. He enjoyed the outdoors, animals and music, and was active with Alcoholics Anonymous. He was known for his kind heart, generosity, and love of God, and he was well respected. Bruce had a strong faith and his passion was serving his Lord. He was very involved in Lake Tahoe Christian Fellowship and was part of Harp and Bowl, a worship team that features music. He was an accomplished speaker and writer and used these skills in serving his church.
He is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Bonnie and Robert Lloyd of Duluth, Minn.; brother and sister-in-law, Ronald Scott and Jackie Williams of South Lake Tahoe; niece, Alexis Williams of Santa Barbara, Calif.; nephews, Brendan Lloyd of Northridge, Calif., and Ronnie and Chris Williams of South Lake Tahoe; aunt, Claudia Barrett of Palm Desert, Calif.; longtime friends, Paula Eoff and her children, Patrick, Melanie, Gretchen, Eddie and Parker of South Lake Tahoe; and many cousins.
