Obituary of Bruce Kevin Brayley

Bruce Kevin Brayley passed away November 11, 2019, in Penn Valley, CA. He was 60.

Bruce was born on May 13, 1959, in Batavia, NY, to parents Bruce James Brayley and Dorothy Maxine (Cochran). Bruce married Anne Lucq in Nevada County in 2013. He was a journeyman carpenter and worked for LB Construction. Bruce was a member of a recovery program. His favorite hobby was riding Harley Davidson motorcycles.

Bruce was a man devoted to his family and friends. He was dedicated to his sobriety and being of service to others. Always ready to put out his hand to shine the light and the way to recovery. He never had children of his own or family, but when marrying Anne he got just that… a family, stepdaughter, step-granddaughter, mother-in-law and brothers and sisters-in-law. He had a passion for riding his Harley with his brothers and sisters in recovery and his wife Anne. Long day trips, coast lines, Feather River Canyon, Tahoe area, and of course any casino.

He will be deeply missed with that bright smile, beautiful green eyes and “Great Hair”.

We would sincerely like to thank all of his dear, devoted family and friends helped with all that was needed for his family at this heartbreaking time. Also, a thanks to LB Construction who believed in his skills and gave him years of respect and allowing him to be a superintendent. A huge thanks to his sisters who were there assist Anne.
