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.
