Thomas Eugene Bruce, 42, died at his home Sunday, February 25, 2018. An Iredell County native, he was born June 17, 1975, the son of Rebecca Mae Brown and Hoyt Lee Bruce, Sr.
Thomas was employed as a drill operator with 3D Environmental Services. He enjoyed fishing, but he also enjoyed repairing things. He was a real “handyman” who could fix almost anything he tackled. He was loved by all who knew him.

He was preceded in death by a brother, Hoyt Lee Bruce, Jr.
The family will schedule a memorial service at a later date.
