Obituary For Bruce John Buchanan

Bruce John Buchanan, age 63, of Holiday, Florida, passed away peacefully at home on October 14, 2021, after a chronic illness. Just like he dealt with all experiences in life, Bruce managed his illness with strength and grace. He was fortunate enough to have spent the last seven months surrounded by his daughter, Elizabeth; her husband, Andrew; and grandson, Victor, who he adored more than anything in the world.

Bruce was known for his kindness, love of family, being a hard worker, working on cars, and maintaining his prized fish tanks.

He was a loving husband to the late Cyndi as well as an amazing father to their beloved daughter, Elizabeth. He was Elizabeth’s first love and her hero.

He leaves behind his daughter, Elizabeth; son-in-law, Andrew; and his precious grandson, Victor. His is also survived by his two sisters, Martha (Glenn) of Wisconsin, and Dorothy (Jerry); two nieces, Sarah and Megan, of Michigan; as well as numerous cousins and friends. Bruce also leaves behind his dog, Boscoe, his best friend.

One of Bruce’s biggest accomplishments was being a father to Elizabeth. He will be truly missed for his ability to think outside the box to fix any issues.

There will be a private service at a later date.

  • I have very fond memories of Bruce on the many visits to Toledo and Florida. He was a very bright and hard working man. He put 150% into his family,his work and his hobbies. He married my sister Cyndi in 1982 and they built a very full life together. Bruce built his own race car Pure Adrenalin and together as a family they pursued qualifying on weekends. Bruce was a very successful journeyman body man at several dealerships in the Tampa Bay Area. Bruce also was an expert at Raising Saltwater fish and corral. He also raised fresh water fish and was known as The Fish Guy on Ebay. He is preceded in Death by his parents and his Beloved Wife ,Cyndi who passed away earlier this year. I ask for prayers for their only child..Elizabeth who has had to endure a very difficult year. Sincerely, Janis Vinson I was his sister in law.
