On March 31, 1979, Bruce married Cindy Clausen at Christ Lutheran Church in Norfolk. The couple was blessed with two children, Darrin and Tabitha.
Bruce found joy in the grocery business. He worked at Lou’s Thrifty Way, Norfolk IGA, Lynn & Sons Grocery, Norfolk Regional Center, and most recently at the Norfolk Veterans Home.
Bruce enjoyed participating in baseball, golfing, bowling, and cross country when he was younger. He watched football and baseball religiously on television, and supported his family through any activity (sports, music, Scouts, etc…)
A big part of his life was receiving a liver transplant. He assisted building several floats to promote Donate Life Nebraska & Live on Nebraska. He was known for his smile, endless conversations, and positive outlook on life.
He is survived by his wife Cindy, son Darrin Paul, daughter Tabitha Paulsen, granddaughter Abigail Paulsen, and brother Dennis Paul. He truly enjoyed everyone’s company, and there are so many people that have not been mentioned.
