Bruce Alan Pack

Bruce Alan Pack


Our sweet and beloved Bruce Alan Pack also known as Dad, Grampy, BAP, or our “Superman” ran into the arms of Jesus on October 22, 2023. Bruce was born on January 6th, 1952 in Wichita, Kansas to Clyde and Dorothy Pack. He moved with his family to Pleasanton, Kansas in 1965 as a tall, lanky 7th grader with blonde hair and bright blue eyes. He quickly rose to fame as the town sports star (basketball being his favorite) and all-around good guy who liked and was liked by all. You could find him dragging main in one of his sports cars, in the b-ball gym putting up extra shots or working one of his many jobs including gas station attendant duties and bucking bales of hay for farmers. After graduating HS in 1970, Bruce joined the National Guard/Army Reserve before moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma where he accepted a job in building materials with Owens Corning Fiberglass. He quickly worked his way up the ladder with his charm and wit and his success in sales and management lasted over 46 years before he retired from Denver Southwest in January 2019. His career allowed him the opportunity to travel the countryside and meet new people/friends which he absolutely loved, and which came so natural to him.

Bruce married his HS sweetheart and one true love, Sherry Lynn Reves, on November 25, 1972, at the First Christian Church in Pleasanton, KS. Together they raised three wonderful children who love and adore their dad completely. In addition, Bruce and Sherry were blessed with eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren who were among Bruce’s greatest delights. His career in sales took the family from Oklahoma City to Houston to Lubbock and finally back to Edmond in 1984. Bruce and Sherry made good friends everywhere they went.

Bruce and his family were members of the Edmond Christian Church for 25 years and Bruce served in various leadership roles there including his role as elder. In 2009, Bruce and Sherry placed membership at Memorial Road Church of Christ and joined the Cornerstone Class where they have been blessed with many wonderful friendships. Bruce started each morning with a cup of coffee (7-11 was his go to and not “foo foo” coffee) and his bible reading and quiet time with God. He found joy in daily activities such as reading the physical newspaper, laundry, yardwork (blowing leaves was #1) and he was the best trash collector. He was an avid competitor and was always up for a good game of driveway basketball, pool, croquet, tennis, golf, spades, dominoes among other things. He had a talent for winning most of the time. Bruce took pride in keeping his cars clean and loved watching sports. He especially loved the KC Chiefs and was a Chief’s fan long before Taylor Swift. Bruce was a big sports fan but was an even bigger fan of people. If he met you, he loved you. A wave, a handshake, a smile or an atta boy were always all readily available to anyone and his joy, humor, energy, and light will forever be missed. His family cherished the encouragement, sound Godly advice and laughter he offered them so graciously and will forever marvel at how he lived out his faith all the days of his life. It is the greatest honor and privilege to call him ours and we will forever be grateful for his example.

Bruce is survived by his large, adoring fan club including his wife, Sherry; his sister Brenda Allen of Kansas; his children, daughter Courtney Dean and husband Jerrod, son Ryan Pack and wife Amanda, daughter Candiss Scovel and husband Nate; his grandchildren, Darci Pickard and husband Bryce, Chloee, Ford, Roan, Hank, Cate, Cosy and June; his great-grandchildren Mabel and Dean as well as many other loving family members and friends.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 28, 2023 at 10am at the Memorial Road Church of Christ in Edmond, Oklahoma.  Contributions can be made to Memorial Road Church of Christ Youth Ministry at 2221 E. Memorial Road, Edmond, OK  73013. To live stream the service please use the following link

    Sherry, I was sadden to learn of the passing of your beloved Bruce. I worked with Bruce during his time at Owens Corning and he, Don Stamps and Tim Lyons and i were business partners in a start up building material distribution business. Through challenging times i most appreciated the consistently positive outlook Bruce had on what laid ahead. Bruce was simply fun to be around. I am declaring John 14:27 over you and your family this day that “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you….”

  6. Sherry you and Bruce have such a wonderful family, both of you are so generous and loving.

    I recall Caitlin’s (my daughter) fiend Amanda running out of gas near your house, I called you and Bruce was there in five minutes with a gas can.

    All of us should strive to be like Bruce! May his light perpetually shine and your family continue to be blessed!

  7. Sherry and Family, So sorry the loss of a wonderful man. “Uncle Bruce” was such a special man and he brightened every room he entered. I am a better person because I had the opportunity to spend some time with him. We will miss his laugh and smile but we have a lot of wonderful memories to keep with us. I know he will be watching Bree run this weekend at the State CC meet and our hearts will be in OK with you all. Love you all!!!

Thank you all for sharing Bruce with the world and us.

    Sherry and Family. I can’t begin to describe how deeply Bruce’s passing has affected me and my family! You and Bruce helped seat us in Edmond and on Locust Lane some 37 years ago. Our neighborhood has been our own little paradise in part because of neighbors like the Packs. Bruce was some what a mentor to me in that I always tried to emulate his positive attitude and good nature and his spirit for living. As a cancer survivor myself I know a little of the fight he put up but no where near the struggle he endured. He was a very brave and strong willed guy with a zest for life. His faith in God was all inspiring and I think God used him as an example of how we must conduct our lives through the toughest of times. I always enjoyed being with you and your family over the years and thank God for those times. I am sure Bruce is with God now looking down on all of us trying to keep us in God’s good Grace!
    Bruce made it to the end as the Golf Champ of Locust Lane, something he liked to remind me of often and I am glad he did.
