Bruce A. Erb, age 62, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, July 7, 2016.

He was born in Oconto Falls on August 22, 1953, a son of the late Victor M. and Mabel E. (Rueckert) Erb. Bruce attended local schools and was a 1972 graduate of Gillett High School. He worked at Techniply as a shipping clerk for almost 40 years.

Bruce was a lifelong and active member of Christ Lutheran Church-Hintz and held various positions over the years. He was currently an Elder of the church. He was also a past Boy Scout Leader.

In his free time, Bruce enjoyed walking and running and had completed his 30th Bellin Run in June. He had a great interest in genealogy and traced the family back to the 17th century. Bruce was a devoted family man and animal lover and will be greatly missed.
