Bruce Harrison, 66, passed away Thursday, October 14, 2021, at I.U. Health Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie, IN.
He was born in Lebanon, IN on January 11, 1955 to Walter and Belva (Bingham) Harrison. Bruce graduated from Clinton Prairie High School in 1974. After high school, Bruce played Semi-Professional Football for the Lafayette Generals. He won several Semi-Professional Super Bowls gaining an invitation from the Chicago Bears, but God had another plan and introduced him to his wife Pamela. They were wed on September 19, 1976 and had four children. He never complained or regretted this decision as Bruce always selflessly chose family over himself.
Bruce worked for his father’s construction company before becoming a Journeyman Electrician and Maintenance Technician for various companies. Family was the most important thing to Bruce and he loved spending time with them, always making sure they were taken care of. He loved working with his hands and could build or fix just about anything. He enjoyed watching sports with his children, attending his grandchildren’s events, and sitting next to a good bonfire. He was known for his generosity, warm personality, and being the life of the party. Bruce and his wife, Pam, bought their farm in 2019 leading to his retirement in 2020. He loved working on the farm and always had a project that he was working on.
Bruce is survived by his wife Pamela Harrison; four children, Jeffrey (Lisa) Harrison, Stephanie (Dominic) Marino, Elizabeth (Stewart) Amberger, and Melissa (Jacob) Parrott; five grandchildren, Noah Harrison, Sophia Harrison, Xavier Marino, Ema Amberger, and Grace Amberger; four siblings, Walter (Kay) Harrison, Jr., Sue Swackhamer, Joy (Chuck) Watkins, and Mary (Tony) Savage; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Belva Harrison, and brother-in-law, Max Swackhamer.
