Bruce Castle, age 63, passed away May 14, 2021, at his home in Laurel Maryland.
He was born February 26, 1958 of lifelong Laurel residents, Jack and Doris (Leser) Castle; both of whom preceded him in death, in addition to his beloved sister Darlene Castle.
After graduating Laurel high school, he went to work for Greater Laurel Beltsville Hospital and then worked many years as an automotive mechanic at Jack's Jeep. His main hobbies were working on his hotrod, as well as tinkering on anything that needed fixing, or even just a creative upgrade; as he could be quite the inventor. He enjoyed being outside, cooking steak on the grill, and listening to 80's rock on one of his many walk-mans.
He had a passion for racing and loved cars; except Fords, that was a different passion. Bruce was a Chevy man and always wore a hat to prove it. His most prized possession was his Chevy II/Nova, the White Buffalo.
Bruce was a loving person who, above all, loved his family. He also loved making new friends. He was always quick witted and loved to make people laugh. Those who knew him knew he was a rebel without a cause who loved rocking, racing, and raising hell.
Bruce is survived by his brother John E. Castle III (Nancy), and his sisters, Fern Cole(Ronald) and Sharon Castle. His memory lives on through his nieces, Candace Cole, Cathleen Curley, Debra Williams, Melissa Robinson; his nephews, Dewey Huneycutt and Brian Cole, their spouses; great-niece and buddy, Danielle Brown. He will be deeply missed and thought of fondly by several lifetime friends, as well as a multitude of relatives, including several cousins and great-nieces and nephews.
Bruce's memorial will be held privately and his ashes will be interred at his family's plot at Ivy Hill Cemetery at a later date.
