Devoted husband for 46 years to Susanne (Gauman), loving father to Erin (Jamie) and Allison (Daniel), beloved grandfather to Jaiden and Neiko. Dear brother to Blake and Ann (Greg). He was preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Joerdis (Griffin) Hurley.

Bruce carried his love of sports to Columbia High where he taught English and coached Men's Varsity Basketball, being named "Coach of the Year" in 1971 and '72. His teaching career continued for 25 more years at North Royalton High where he coached Women's Varsity Basketball from 1984-2000.
