Guy is survived by his daughter, Dawn Michelle Vasquez and husband David of Terre Haute; son, Scott Alan Bruce and wife Amy of Terre Haute; grandchildren, Caleb Bruce, Caitlyn Bruce, Jared Vasquez, and Samantha Mowery and husband Stew; great-grandchildren, Adrianna Bell and Chosen Ellington; a sister, Diana Dwyer of Terre Haute; a brother, George Bruce, Jr. and wife Barb of Ft.

Guy graduated from Gerstmeyer High School in 1965. He proudly served in the United States Army. He worked for 18 years at CF Industries and at Bemis for 25 years, retiring in 2012.

Guy enjoyed being highly organized, from his stamp collection to the manuals that came with the tools and electronics he bought over the years. An eye for detail, he liked to make sure things were done right the first time. He loved helping his kids with home improvement projects, especially if there was a problem to solve. Guy enjoyed riding roller coasters. He and Karen loved to bowl, travel, and play cards and games together. Most of all, he cherished the time he spent with family.

I didn't know Guy for very long but it is clear to me that his love for his family and his desire to be helpful to anyone in need are his legacy. We will miss this extraordinary man.
