William Bruce Rose

Bruce was born on July 3, 1946, son of Billy A. and Velma Noah Rose, in Abilene. He met Barbara Sue Scaling, and they married in Fort Worth on July 31, 1969 and together they raised their two children. They spent their lives together riding motorcycles, hunting, skiing, camping, driving jeeps and vacationing in Lake City, Colorado every summer. Bruce was an active member of Ash Creek Baptist Church for many years and was very active in the community prior to his retirement from First Bank in Azle. He lived a full life filled with family, friends and fun and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Bruce was preceded in death by his father, Billy A. Rose of Abilene, who was killed in an accident when Bruce was 6. He was also preceded in death by his parents, Curtis and Velma Springfield of Azle.

Survivors include his loving wife of 43 years, Barbara; daughter, Christi Read and husband, Randy, and their son, Daxen; son, Barry Rose and wife, Mindi, and their son, Briggs; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and loving friends.
