DANIELSON, CT -Bruce A. Brooker, 50, died April 14, 2017, at his home surrounded by family and friends, having lost his battle with cancer.
Bruce was born in Putnam, CT, and lived most of his life in the town of Killingly, having attended Killingly public schools.

Bruce is predeceased by his father Norbert Brooker, his brother Craig Brooker and several aunts and an uncle.
Bruce's passions included photography, hiking and music-most especially music of the band Grateful Dead. A self proclaimed "Dead Head" and "hippie" he practiced love and kindness and that is what he wished for everyone. Bruce was a beacon of light wherever he went. He didn't give up on friends and family and helped many a friend through tough times. His consideration and respect of others along with his underlying love of his family and friends was second to none. It goes without saying he will be missed by many.
Bruce fought a long and hard battle against Metastatic Melanoma and now without pain will be angel looking down to guide us.
His family would like to thank Dr. Dennis E. Slater and his team at Eastern Connecticut Hematology and Oncology as well as the Day Kimball Palliative/Hospice program for their exceptional care and compassion during Bruce's fight with cancer.
