Bruce Field

Bruce David Field was born on July 25th, 1947 in Detroit Michigan to Rex and Dorothy Field. Bruce grew up at Fish Lake near Holly Michigan. Bruce enjoyed several outdoor adventures at the lake with his brother Steven and his cousins in his youth. Bruce loved to drive fast, his first car was a Pontiac GTO convertible. Two weeks before leaving for service in Vietnam Bruce discussed buying a Corvette with his father. Rex reminded him he was deploying soon, and Bruce reminded him he might not come back. Bruce bought a fuel injected Sting Ray before his departure. Bruce’s love of Corvettes as well as fast, extravagant, and beautiful cars permeated his life until the day he died. Bruce played baseball for Holly High School; from which he graduated in 1965. After graduating he joined the U.S. Army at the age of 17, becoming a paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team. Graduating from Jump school and serving as a paratrooper was one of the defining and proudest experiences of Bruce’s life. Soon after graduating from jump school, Bruce was deployed to Vietnam. Bruce kept many of his experiences in the war close to the vest, he was the epitome of a professional soldier and paratrooper. Before his death Bruce expressed to his daughter Kaylan, that his experiences in Vietnam were overpoweringly difficult, that he lost many friends, and had since felt closest in friendship with other veterans. Bruce returned from the war in 1968 and began his career as a test driver with General Motors. Bruce was instrumental in erecting the Purple Heart Veteran’s memorial in Holly. Bruce is survived by his sister Cathy Field, girlfriend Tina, daughter Kaylan Field, nephews Justin (Kiyomi), Joseph (Heather & Aurora), Brandon Bawden, and dear friend Jill. Bruce was preceded in death by his Brother Steven Field, Father and Mother Rex and Dorothy Field, Son Adam Field, Uncles Fred Sheldon and David Field, and Aunts Marie Voorhees Field and June Hoy Field. Funeral services will be held on Sunday, February 4, 12noon at Temrowski Family Funeral Home, 500 Main St., Fenton. Friends may visit on Sunday beginning at 10am until the time of service. Fr. David Harvey officiating. Donations may be made to Purple Heart.

Bruce, your passing came as a total shock and news to us since two days ago. I wish we would have known. Not only to support you, but also to be there for your daughter and your sister. I struggle with the situation. I wish I would have seen you, I never thought you struggled with health. Comforting though is to know you are now without pain and without illness. I know you are in your Corvette testing that grip and torque.... I will miss You, Miss our conversations and our shared passion for Corvette. We will be with you in thought this coming Sun.With Love Maria&Jim

Dear Family:     I wanted to convey my sincere regret for your recent loss.  In the difficult days ahead I hope you will find comfort in happy memories.
