Bruce Edward Avrett, born in San Antonio, Texas, Oct. 1, 1950, son of the late Roy Avrett and Lillie Mae Fritze Avrett, passed away Feb. 17, 2008, after a brief illness.
Bruce graduated from Glynn Academy in Georgia and attended college at the University of Georgia. He moved to Texas to work at Tandy Corp., in Fort Worth as a graphic artist. Later, he moved to San Antonio and for many years worked at the Alamo in the curator's office. It was at The Alamo and in his home that his artistic gifts and abilities to build and repair many things gave him great satisfaction. He was very proud of his Hill Country German heritage, which led to his extensive genealogy research into his family ancestry. He especially treasured the time he spent on his grandfather's farm with his cousins during his adolescence. Because of his love of history, he and his wife participated in historical re-enactments and activities with the Sons of the Confederate Veterans and recently enjoyed attending and participating in Renaissance festivals throughout Texas. Bruce was loved by many for his gentle humor, his easygoing temperament, his genuine willingness to help others and his "can-do" attitude for projects. He always had a special bond with his dogs and enjoyed following the fortunes of his favorite college football team, the Georgia Bulldogs.
He is survived by his loving wife, Marcie; his mother, Lea; his sister, Joyce Oliver and her husband, Frank, of Palatka; and other extended family members.
He was buried in the family plot at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Castell, Texas
