Bruce Leon Josephs

    On February 2nd, 2024, the community lost Bruce Leon Josephs. Bruce passed in Naples, FL surrounded by his family and friends. His passing concluded a 6 year battle with cancer, having beaten it once during that time.

     He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Melinda Kay Josephs, his three children: Brian (sp. Kristen), Matthew (sp. Jacqueline) and Jennifer (fiance Thomas Wraith), and four grandchildren: Brady (5), Rosemary (3), Annie (11 mo) and John (3 mo).

     He was an exceptional man, living his values by putting his family and friends first. He was deeply committed to those important to him, traveling all over the country to visit his children, grandchildren, siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. When he wasn’t traveling, he welcomed all into his home for holidays, birthdays and any other reason to get together and share a laugh. A testament to his kindness, humor, and character, he kept many lifelong friends, be it from York High School, University of Illinois, Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity or work at United Airlines. Now his spirit joins his parents, Mitchel and Sylvia, and brothers, Mitch and Greg. His memory lives on in our hearts and the many stories we will share for years to come.
