He was born in Marlborough, MA, the son of the late Archibald C. and Ruth E. (Saunders) Fenton.
Bruce served in the US Army after attending the Hart School of Music, in Hartford, CT. After the Army, he worked in art and advertising and spent the rest of his life studying the world around him. He was an accomplished musician who could play almost any instrument you placed in his hands. His paintings, drawings and photographs were proudly displayed at art shows and hung on museum walls. He was an accomplished magician who always had a magic trick ready up his sleeve to the delight of everyone. Bruce loved woodworking, fishing with his friends, playing trains with his grandchildren, metal detecting for treasures and hunting for arrowheads, and collecting anything that caught his eye. His love and laughter will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
