Bruce David Reffeor (WD8KPQ)
October 3, 2009
Bruce David Reffeor, aged 68, of Coopersville, formerly of Montague, passed away
Saturday, October 3, 2009. Bruce was born and raised in Sunbury, PA and in 1961 he married his high
school sweetheart, Charlotte. In 1966, Bruce and his wife moved to Montague, MI where they lived for 27
years. Bruce taught math and science at Oakridge Jr. High School. After seven years he left teaching to work
full time as co-owner and eventually owner of Reffeor and Brown Construction. He built many homes in the
Montague, Shelby, and Whitehall area. Bruce sold his construction business in 1986 and took a job at
Muskegon Community College as lead carpenter where he worked until his retirement in 2003. Bruce was an
avid Ham Radio Operator and member of the Muskegon Amateur Radio Council, and Michigan Amateur
Radio Alliance in Grand Rapids. He enjoyed jumping out of perfectly good airplanes (skydiving), gourmet
cooking, traveling and practical jokes. To his friends in our Ham Radio club MARA, he will always be remembered as a kind, decent loving person who would go out of his way to help others. We do miss you Bruce.
