Bruce Allan Sheeley was born October 26, 1950, in Galine, Michigan. He was the son of Burton and Delores (Bennitt) Sheeley. At a young age, the family moved to Niles, Michigan, where Bruce grew up and attended school. In 1970, Bruce settled in South Dakota and it quickly became his home. For many years, Bruce traveled the country, but he always came back to South Dakota. He was married to Cheryl Park on December 11, 1984, in Farmington, Utah and for the past several years they have lived in Aladdin.
Bruce will be remembered for his sense of humor. He always had a joke to tell, and enjoyed making people smile. He loved the outdoors, including fishing, and camping. He was generous to people and a loyal friend. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
