Bruce, or Andy as he was known to family, was born June 25, 1983 to Anita and Bruce Dominique. A railroad man to the core, he had the pleasure of working for the railroad for the better part of a decade. His passion for the railroad also encompassed railroad history and modeling. Second only to this was his love of law enforcement. He had the privilege of serving for two local law enforcement agencies and was a recipient of the reserve officer of the year award multiple times. He was kind and compassionate and would do anything for anyone. Bruce passed away much too soon on Friday, September 6, 2019 at the age of 36. Preceding Bruce in death was his mother, Anita Mathews Dominique. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Christina Poole Dominique; father, Bruce Anthony Dominique, Sr.; brother, Chad Speir; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and good friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation be made in his honor to The Alzheimers Association of Shreveport, 910 Pierremont Rd., Suite 410, Shreveport, LA 71106. (318) 861-8680. www.alz.org

For days I’ve pondered on what I should write and honestly no words could ever totally describe the amazing person you were . I just wanted to say thank you for being such a great friend to me and for always giving me some reason to smile even when I didn’t feel like smiling. I wish I had known that Sunday before would be the last time I would ever see you. I would have visited with you longer. I would have hugged your neck before you left. I would have ordered you that “omelette “ you were joking about. I’ve been praying for your dad . I know losing you and your mom just a few months apart must be hard on him. I have been there myself so I know that pain.
Bruce, I will miss you my friend. Thank you again for being my friend. You were one of a kind.🙏🏻💙🖤

I had the pleasure of being one of the first to welcome Bruce to UPRR. He was a standout student in his new hire class I taught, as well as a class favorite from day one. I’m pretty sure he made a 100 on any quiz or exam he took. He was always so kind and respectful of everyone he came into contact with. He moved with certainty and confidence that anyone would envy but appreciate. I remember discussing model railroading with him and him describing a club he belonged to, unfortunately I never met up with him as promised to see it for myself. He also shared a fondness for aviation as I do. I had wanted to take him flying and always thought that we would sooner or later. That regretfully will not happen now. Bruce was taken from us too soon, and he has reminded us to seize the moment and let your loved ones, friends or family, know they are loved daily!

Andy has always been his Father’s pride, his Mother’s joy. Their dream come true. The earth has lost a remarkable young man. We will miss you Andy all the days of our lives. Until the day of our earthly departure walk in paradise with your Mom and Aunt Penny. One day we will all be together again. With love, Aunt Pam

Bruce was a kind-hearted person who genuinely cared about everyone he came into contact with. I met him through my husband when they worked together at the railroad and it was like we had been friends our whole lives. We shared recipes and stories and just talked about things going on in each other's lives. He was there for our wedding and we were there for his. People with his nature and loving spirit just don't come along every day. He will be greatly missed.

Bruce was my neighbor in Savannah Place for several years. Eventually, we became good friends. We worked on projects together and frequently borrowed tools and material from each other. We often worked on both our houses and yards together. Bruce and I spoke often and we would both seek advice from each other on various things. Our neighbors would often drive by and catch us out in the front yard catching up on life and what not.
My family cared for Bruce and his family deeply, and he often checked up on mine.

Bruce, I’m going to miss our talks and our little projects we shared. You were an amazing friend and even though I never told you, I considered you family.
Until next time, rest easy my friend and save some projects for me, for when we meet again.

Bruce was like a brother to me for a certain time in my life. He kept me level headed about things I could not control and never complained. I also enjoyed his and Michael's train conversations, whether about work or their model train projects. He will be missed dearly by every heart he touched with his amazing personality. I pray for his family and close friends daily till we say our final goodbyes to a great man gone too soon.

I took this picture of him and Micheal on a spontanous trip to the Texas State Railroad.
