Bruce was born in Lakeview on April 12, 1946 the son of Forest and Patricia (West) Peasley.  He was a proud veteran of the United States Army. His love of farming was always evident, he received numerous awards for his Holstein dairy herd, was Trustee of the Michigan Farm Stock Tractor Pullers club and was a successful farmer. Weather is very important to a farmer and he was an avid Reporter.  Farmer until the end, raking hay with pride for his brother, always discussing crops, and watching area farmers evolve.  He was a strong Christian and a Deacon at the Sylvester Community Church. He was competitive at basketball, ping pong and tractor pulling but in knowing his faults and limitations he never let them get him down.  He loved March Madness and the Final Four Tournament, traveling to Kansas for the last 8-10 years to watch the final four and the championship game.  Bruce loved his children and grandchildren and was always supportive in their accomplishments.

 

A few phrases that were well rehearsed:  Why sure!! Today!!  That’s a Mickey Mouse outfit!!  How do I feel? with my fingers!! What do you want to do? fly through the air with the greatest of ease!!  He had a way of being disgusted and allowed it to turn into something hilarious.

 

Bruce is survived by his loving wife, Lisa (Naylor); sons, Brian (Lisa), Brandin (Regina), Bradley (Janelle) Peasley; daughters, Kassandra (Christopher) Clarke, Jessica (Brandon) Derenzy; grandchildren, Madeline, Jacob, Molly, Lucas, Jack, Hailey, Ashlin, Brett, Zachary, Blake, Bailee, and Christian; brothers, James (Kaye), Fred (Dianne), Philip (Barbara) Peasley; mother-in-law, Bonnie Naylor; brother-in-law, Dallas (Norma) Naylor; and sister-in-law, Tammy (Matthew) Rold.
