Reflections of Life
Bruce was born in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas to the parentage of Mr. Louis and Mrs. Juanita Williams Anderson on May 26th, 1955. He was born the fourth child of twelve loving siblings.
He received his formal education in the Fort Worth ISD, attending M.L. Kirkpatrick and graduating from I.M. Terrell HS as part of the graduating class of 1973. After graduation, Bruce attended Tarrant County College. After moving to Tooele, Utah, he received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Utah.
Following his completion of military duty, serving 14 years in the US Air Force, he temporarily settled in Los Angeles, CA, accepting employment at the Aberdeen Chemical Agent Facility. After years of employment there, a promotion prompted him to accept relocation with the company to Tooele, Utah, where he retired after 25 yrs.
Under the guidance of his parents, Bruce accepted Christ as Lord and Savior and was baptized at an early age. Reaffirming his faith in Christ, after settling in the state of Utah, he became a faithful member of the Calvary Baptist Church SLC, under the pastorage of Dr. France A. Davis.
