On September 15, 2022, Bruce Piggush passed away due to complications during a medical procedure in his home city of Mesa, AZ. He was 61 years old. Just like he dealt with all his experiences in life, Bruce managed his illness with strength and grace and wanted to spend as much time with his loved ones as possible. In his final days, he was surrounded by loved ones and was constantly checking to make sure they were doing ok.
Bruce was born in Kankakee, IL to Harold and Dolores Piggush. He grew up with his brothers, Glenn and Lyle in the same house his parents bought when they married. As a teen, he loved spending his time swimming and being an active member of his church and community. As he got older, he attended college to study computer science. This sparked his passion for technology and science. He was also a member of the volunteer Fire Fighting service in both Wonderlake and Woodstock, IL for many years.
Being a kind and dependable father was of the utmost importance to Bruce and he certainly did not disappoint when it came to wholeheartedly love his family. In addition to his wife, Jackie Piggush, his children (Jason Hibbs and his wife Marilou, Jami Fletcher, Jessica Piggush and Brynn Castaneda and her husband Kirk), grandchildren (Helena and Jasmine Barnett, Mia, Madison, Elizabeth, and Lacey Fletcher, and Wyatt Piggush), Bruce is survived by his mother, Dolores Piggush, and brothers, Glenn and Lyle Piggush, and countless nieces and nephews. He was preceded in passing by his father, Harold Piggush.
One of Bruce’s final wishes was to forgo typical funeral services and instead asked to be remembered in a joyful celebration of life.
