April 27, 1953 - July 16, 2018

A “Service of Remembrance” will be Saturday, July 21 at 7:00 pm in the Melton Mortuary Chapel.  The family will be receiving friends at 5:00 pm.
My dad Bruce deeply loved his children and grandchildren. One of his most desired wishes was for the boys to attend college. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to his Grandchild College Fund. We greatly thank all friends and family for all your sweet and kind words. Thank you!!!!

Time robs us eventually of everything we hold dear and important. Our health, our friends and family. And holding true to what time does, it has robbed us of a good man. I worked with Bruce at Beckley Coal Mining Co. and got to know him pretty well. He was always quick to show that big ol' smile of his and maybe crack a joke from time to time. He was a hoss of a guy--strong as an ox and a heart to match. I luckily never had to ask but if I had, he would have given the shirt off his back--without hesitation. I never got to see him very often but am saddened at the prospect of never getting to bump into him again and share "war stories" of our old coal mining days. Bruce Jackson--one fine man.
