He was born February 16, 1946 to Fred Lavoy Andersen and Dorius Larsen Andersen. He was the second of four children. He was born in Lewiston, Utah and spent most of his youth in Preston, Idaho.
Bruce graduated from Preston High school in 1964. He later went to school and became a master electrician and was a member of the IBEW electrician union. He had a love for the outdoors and after retiring he became a camp host. Red fish lake in Idaho quickly became his favorite place to host and he spent most of his summers as a camp host there.
He loved the Elks Lodge and was an exalted ruler there for many years. Being the kind and caring man he was, he spent many years delivering food for the Elks Lodge at Christmas time to families in need. Later in his life he could often be found serving at the Senior Center in Preston, Idaho.
