Bruce "Gus" Spangler

d. March 3, 2019

Bruce "Gus" Spangler passed away on Sunday, March 3, 2019 (his 63rd birthday). He was born in Green Bay on March 3, 1956 to the late Joseph & Marlene (DeMuyser) Spangler. He was a graduate of Green Bay West class of 1974. He held several diverse jobs ranging from a fabricator at Valley Plating & Fabricating to repairing scooters near UW-Madison, and finally as a security guard/armored car driver. He also studied Engineering at UWGB & UW-Madison as a non-traditional student while in his 30's. While he was growing up (well he never really grew up) he swam & traveled with the YMCA swim team. Interests & hobbies over the years included licensed private pilot, scuba diving, motorcycles, street rods, Rhythm & Booms fireworks in Madison and shooting guns (Peeps were a favorite target). He lived in Madison for the last 30 years where he had many good times on State Street hanging out at Steep & Brew back in the day or on a bench while his close friend Catfish Stephenson played guitar. For the last several years he lived with his daughter Courtney and 9 year old grandson Brayden. Brayden was his pride & joy and Bruce tried to spend as much time as possible with him.

Bruce is survived by his daughter Courtney (fiancée Brad Skinkis) Spangler & grandson Brayden, brothers and sister-in-laws Cindy Spangler, David (Cindy - the other Cindy) Spangler & Paul (Jo Ann) Spangler; nieces & nephews Jamie (Chris) Spina, Buddy (Amanda) Spangler, Samantha Spangler, Brian (Danielle) Spangler, Matthew (special friend Kristi) Spangler and Brett Spangler; great niece Adaline Spangler.

In addition to his parents, Bruce was preceded in death by his brother Dale.
