Bruce was the youngest of three children and grew up in Corpus Christi. He attended Oak Park Elementary, Driscoll Junior High and Roy Miller High School where he played Basketball and graduated in 1963.  His first job was at Rainbow Bakery.  In 1966 Bruce was drafted and served the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War until 1968.  He was a decorated war veteran, he was awarded the Vietnam Service Medal with the Bronze Star, the National Defense Service Medal and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.

Bruce returned home from Vietnam and went into the trade program at Del Mar College and obtained his Journeyman’s electrical license. He worked for several electrical contractors before he opened Fansler Electric, Inc. He obtained his Master License and began his business out of his home in 1983. He then purchased property on Kinney and moved his business there and served Corpus Christi and the surrounding areas for 34 years.  He had a strong work ethic and poured himself into his business.

In 1971 he met Laura at a night club called the Haunted House and he asked her to dance. After several months of dating he asked her to marry him. He knew he wanted her to be his wife after only two months of dating.  They were married at St. Patrick’s  Catholic Church on June 16, 1972.  Bruce attended St. Thomas Episcopal Church when he was growing up and was an altar boy as a young man.  He was currently attending Trinity Worship Center where his love and knowledge for the Lord strengthened.

He was a very giving man that had a heart of gold. He never met a stranger and would go above and beyond to help those he cared about and loved.  He loved his family and grandchildren dearly. He loved spending time with those he loved, telling stories, and sharing a laugh.

Although he wasn’t active with the Lodge and the Shriners at the time of his death he did have fondness of his time spent giving back to them.

Bruce enjoyed hunting and fishing, playing cards, and his swimming pool. He also enjoyed being at being at his farm, watching and yelling at the Dallas Cowboys and the San Antonio Spurs.  He enjoyed cooking for the holidays and always had to cook the turkey and make his signature mashed potatoes.  He loved to grow tomatoes and work around the house.  He loved to read and learn about new things, and loved conversations.  He also was a recliner engineer about spinning the wheel on Wheel of Fortune and Fox News.  He will be greatly missed.

His family ask that you join us in celebrating his life on earth and remember the good time that were shared with him. Remember the loving, kind, generous, caring, and hard working man that he was. Rejoice with us in his home going celebration.

He will be in our hearts and loved always.
