Bruce Leland Moshier, age 65, of Ocala, Florida passed away at his home on Monday, October 26, 2020. He was born on September 13, 1955 the son of Carol Moshier and the late Paul Richard Moshier. Bruce was a native of Vernon, New York, and moved to this area in 1972.

He was a graduate of Vangard High School in 1973 and following his high school graduation he started his career path with Florida Telephone Company under Max Wetstein doing several different jobs for 20 years before his next adventure at E1 in Ocala. Bruce dedicated 16 years to E1 building fire trucks. Prior to his retirement, he then worked at Lockhead Martin for 16 years.

In Bruce’s free time he enjoyed animals and going hunting. In his life, he had several Boston Terroir dogs and his pride and joy was his current brindle, Sweetie, who is missing her daddy dearly. Around 10 years ago, Bruce decided to give up hunting and started his man-cave garden in his front yard around an over 100-year old Oak Tree!
