Bruce Ratcliffe

Beavercreek

Bruce Ratcliffe passed away on March 25, 2024. Born on May 8, 1949 in Wick, Scotland, Bruce spent most of his life in Hurley, England, a small village outside of Birmingham. 
 
Following his education, he began his career working for the Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB) in England, where he spent his days and nights ensuring the lights stayed on. After an early retirement from the CEGB, he transitioned to a caregiver role as a nursing assistant, at Bentley House Care Centre, where he brought comfort and care to his residents there.

Bruce met his future wife, Julie Anderson, while attending a wedding in Oklahoma. They married in 1994 and started their family together in Hurley, living there until 1998, when they relocated to the United States.
 
Bruce's free time was often spent in his workshop. As an avid craftsman, he worked on many personal projects and home improvements. Bruce was a supportive family man, dedicating his time to his son's school, often volunteering for school activities. He also served as an assistant coach with the Beavercreek Youth Softball Association and Beavercreek Soccer Association, alongside his son’s sports teams for multiple years. 
 
Bruce was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, always putting his family first. His legacy will live on through the memories shared by those who knew and loved him.

He is preceded by his parents, Thomas and Margaret Ratcliffe; and sister, Jesse Rosie.

Bruce is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Julie Ratcliffe; son, Kevin (Miranda) Ratcliffe; granddaughter, Gracie Ratcliffe; nephew, Derek Rosie; niece, Angela Parkinson; and other extended family and friends.
