Bruce P. Schwoch, age 76, passed away peacefully on September 22, 2019 at AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc.
He is preceded in death by his parents Wilfred and Mary Schwoch.
Bruce is survived by his beloved wife of 43 years, Sandra Schwoch (nee Stark). Loving father of Kristine (Douglas) Dawson and Michael (Abby) Schwoch. Proud grandpa of Ahren and Evan Dawson, and Turner and Wilson Schwoch. Brother-in-law of Nancy Krebs. Lifetime and dearest friend of Jay (Jean) Davies. Also survived by many relatives and friends.
Bruce was born in Waukesha, WI. He graduated from Carroll College (now University) and received his Masters Degree from UW Madison. Tennis truly does begin with love, because that is where he met the love of his life, Sandy. They were married at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Menomonee Falls in 1976. Bruce worked at Northwestern Mutual for 37 years, and after retirement looked forward to seeing his buddies from there. Bruce cherished his time with family and lived for family vacations up north. Attending his son’s and grandsons’ baseball and hockey games gave him so much joy.
Bruce was a man of strong faith. Friends have said Bruce never said a disparaging word and he was the one they knew they could come to for support at any time. He enriched the lives of many and our lives were more complete for the time we were blessed spending with him.
Services for Bruce will take place on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at Holy Cross Lutheran Church (W156N8131 Pilgrim Rd, Menomonee Falls). A visitation for family and friends will take place from 10:00am until time of service at 11:30am. Interment will follow at Prairie Home Cemetery in Waukesha.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be given to Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Bruce’s memory.
