In loving memory of the late Robert Bruce Juggins "Bruce" who sadly passed away on 20th July 2014
Bruce was born on the 9th March 1943 in Newport Gwent, he was the eldest Son
Of Charles and Marie Juggins.
Although christened Robert Bruce Juggins, it was soon apparent to his mom that he wasn’t a Rob or a Bobby so they decided to use his second given name and friends and family quickly caught on to this.
At the end of the War, Charles brought his family back to the Midlands, which was where he originated from. They settled in Coleshill, and this is where Bruce’s Sister Jean and brothers David and Peter were born.
Bruce attended the Primary School in Coleshill and moved on at eleven years old to Park Hall School in Castle Bromwich where he completed his education.
Leaving school at the age of 15, he started his first job working alongside his Dad at Daw Mill Colliery.
He had a number of other jobs, but in 1966 he joined Distillers Co2 in Coleshill and it was with this company, that he learnt the skills required to become a pipe fitter welder. He remained in employment with them until he retired in 2005.
He met his wife Doreen in the early 1960’s, they got engaged and were married 18 months later on the 7th October 1967.
In 1969 their daughter Nicola was born and two and a half years later their Son, Andrew followed.
Bruce enjoyed playing dominoes for the Plough Inn, at Shustoke, but his greatest passion was fishing.
He was a member of a couple of fishing clubs.
Coleshill & District Angling Club and Coleshill Tornadoes AC.
You would always know where he was on a Sunday Morning,
Bruce told a good fisherman’s tale, about ‘the one that got away’ and ‘it was this big, it nearly broke my rod’ but the best tales told were always about the antics and mishaps that he and his close friends got up to on their fishing trips.
Bruce will be sadly missed by his friends and family,
By his wife Doreen……
His daughter, Nicola and his Son, Andrew
His Son in Law, Lee
And Daughter in Law Sam.
Sam, Ben and Kieran
His Great Grandchild, Ashton-Lee
Gone, but never forgotten, he will always be in our prayers. God Bless
