Former Indiana State Police Sgt, E. Bruce Privett, 63, who endured more than 24 years battling the debilitating disease of progressive multiple sclerosis, passed away Friday, July 8, 2011. Born March 1948, he was the son of Frances and Harold Privett.

He graduated from Anderson High School and attended Vincennes University. He worked for the city of Anderson as an engineer until being recruited by the State Police as a law enforcement officer in 1979. He was a squad sergeant assigned to the Pendleton Post before retiring on disability and becoming self-employed as a CAD operator.

The family would like to thank the many, many caregivers who assisted in so many ways over the years. He had resided at home in Arcadia before transitioning to The Lodge in Noblesville, Manor Care in Anderson and finally at Tipton Hospital and Millers Merry Manor. A special note of gratitude to Drs. Mike Harper and Vince Delumpa who provided such extraordinary personalized care throughout this very arduous journey.

Survivors include his wife and primary caregiver, Vicki Privett; children, Shaun (Steffani) Privett of Atlanta and Amy (Keith) Hinshaw of Lapel; first wife and mother of their children, Pat (Bill) Cowart of Noblesville; grandchildren, Keegan and Kyla Hinshaw and Nora Privett; brothers, Scott and Tom Privett of Anderson; and many nieces and nephews.

Although medical science has yet to find a cure for demyelinating diseases, he requested contributions in lieu of flowers be made to support brain disease research through the McLaughlin Research Institute, 1520 23rd Street South, Great Falls, MT 59405-4900 or The Myelin Project, P.O. Box 39, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.

Visitation is 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Young-Nichols Funeral Home, 216 W. Jefferson St. in Tipton. Funeral service is 6 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.

A private burial service will be held at Maplewood Cemetery in Anderson.
