Bruce was born on September 7, 1952 in Carver County Minnesota to Arthur and Audrey Hokenson. At a young age Bruce and his family moved from Minnesota to the Nasonville area where they owned and operated the family farm. In 1971, Bruce graduated from Marshfield Senior High School. Shortly thereafter he found out he was the last person in Wood County to be drafted into the Army. He proudly served while stationed in Huntsville Alabama. While in Alabama Bruce played AAA baseball. Baseball was one of Bruce’s favorite hobbies. He even got the chance to take an At Bat for the Minnesota Twins. Upon his return to the Marshfield area, Bruce worked on the family farm and as a Herdsman for other area farms including Kraus Farms.
Bruce had the “gift of gab” and loved sharing stories that would be sure to make you laugh until you cried. He enjoyed meeting up with friends to share these stories, talk about cars, and of course baseball.
Bruce is survived by his mother Audrey and beloved cat Gracie as well as many other relatives. He was predeceased by his father Arthur and a brother Lee.
Bruce had an amazingly kind heart and will be deeply missed by many.
