Bruce Scotfree Bigham passed away suddenly in his sleep, at home, on February 22nd, 2019, at the age of 71.

Bruce was a family man, Vietnam Veteran, brick mason, and enjoyed camping, hunting, photography, and experimenting with light reflective glass, prisms and crystals to make rainbows. Bruce was born in Alameda, California, and graduated from high school in Bountiful, Utah. After serving in Vietnam, his work as a brick mason brought him and his family to various places in Utah, Washington and California. For the last two decades, Bruce lived in Lovell, Wyoming, where he felt like he was a part of the community. He loved to be surrounded by his family, especially camping with them up in the mountains, and in his later years truly loved to spend time with his grandchildren. Bruce enjoyed and took pride in hard work, supporting his family, and was always willing to help people, both friends and strangers alike. He taught his kids to always be plus people, pitch in, and “prove up.” He will be greatly missed, and lovingly remembered by friends and family for his strength, laughter and his big loving heart.

Bruce was preceded in death by his son James Donal Bigham, and is survived by his second wife, Tonee Bigham, his children, Joshua Bigham (Erin Banke), Shinehah Bigham (Elaine Johnson), Cressa (Brian) Castellini, Shay Bigham, Maiss Bigham, Tia (Aaron) Phillips, Brair (Leslie) Bigham, and grandchildren Bruce Bigham, Azalees Acton, Olivia Phillips, and a granddaughter to be born in March.

Services will be held at the Lovell Community Center on Saturday, March 2nd, where there will be a viewing at 10am, and memorial service at 11am. Directly afterwards, guests are invited to proceed to the burial where Military Honors will be held on the hill at “The Creek”, where Bruce will be laid to rest next to his son James. “Hop, skip and jump over the rainbow.”

Bruce and I grew up together in Bountiful Utah. He was always a mellow fun guy. I particularly appreciate and respect that Bruce is a Vietnam Vet. God bless my friend.

I remember Bruce well from High School. He was always an easy going guy. Bruce was in one of the Auto Shop classes with me, and I remember he was this quiet, nice guy. God's speed.
