Bruce Edward Matarazzo, 69, of Marshall, MI passed away unexpectedly on June 24, 2021, at Spectrum Health Butterworth in Grand Rapids, MI. Bruce was born on May 18, 1952, in Detroit, MI to the late John and Kathryn (Meyers) Matarazzo.

Bruce proudly served and retired after twenty years from the United States Army as a Sergeant First Class and Musashi Auto Parts as a forklift driver after sixteen years. He enjoyed golf, camping, fishing, boating and really, anything outdoors.
