Bruce Gould lost his battle of almost five months with COVID-19 and the damage it did to his organs, on Feb. 4, 2021, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Bruce was the son of Lloyd and P. Elizabeth Scott Gould and was born on Sept. 13, 1954. He lived in Midwest, Wyoming, and as a young child the family moved to Kimball, Nebraska, where he attended school until his senior year, at which time they moved to Powell. Bruce graduated with the Class of 1972.
Bruce and Yvonne were married in June 1982, in Casper, and lived there before moving to Las Vegas, where they resided for over 30 years. While living in Wyoming, Bruce worked for Safeway stores and was a security guard at the Hilton. In Las Vegas, he was employed as a trailer park manager.
Bruce was raised as a Presbyterian. He loved to collect and had quite large coin and baseball card collections.
Bruce was preceded in death by his parents, both sets of grandparents, and Yvonne, his wife of 38 years.
He is survived by his brother, Curtis of Central City, Nebraska; his sister, Cyndi (Joe) Barski of Powell; and half-sister Joan (Russell) of Yreka, California. He is also survived by nieces Erin Barski, of Meeteetse, and Catlin Bieber (Kyle); and two great nephews, Jordan and Eli, all of Powell.
A graveside memorial will be held at Crown Hill Cemetery on Friday, March 5 at 10 a.m. Joe Barski, Kyle Bieber, Caiti Barski and Jordan Loera will be honorary pallbearers. The family asks that people wear a mask to the service to protect others, and in Bruce’s memory.
