Bruce C. Henley, 64, passed away Saturday February 3, 2024 at the Hyde Family Hospice House in Dover, NH, after a long battle with cancer. He was the son of the late Robert Henley and Janet (Pariseau) Henley. He was also predeceased by his younger brother Gary Henley.
Bruce is survived by his daughter Lindsay Rose Brooks, of Newton, NH, sister Cynthia Henley-Currier and her partner Kenneth Belanger of New Boston, NH, and nephew Tyler and his wife Jordan and great niece Meredith of Hardeeville, SC, sister Patricia Henley-Capuano of Peabody, MA, nieces Christina Capuano & Niccole Capuano of Peabody, MA, as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Bruce was born in Beverly, MA and grew up in Hamilton, thereafter, lived in Essex, Hamilton, and Ipswich. He moved to Newton, NH in 2020 with his daughter. He is a graduate of Hamilton/Wenham Regional High School.
Bruce was an avid skier, he enjoyed boating, camping, car shows, the racetrack and taking rides up the Kancamagus Highway. On a Friday night you could count on seeing him at the VFW in Ipswich having a beer after a long weeks’ work. He took a lot of pride in his work and almost never took a day off. He was a clam digger in Essex, worked for Chuck Hulbert Construction out of Ipswich, Brick Ends Farm out of Hamilton, and most recently worked for CWT in Andover where he was a truck driver and travelled all around New England. He loved tinkering with any sort of project he could get his hands on, he thoroughly enjoyed a fixer upper. He was very proud of his toys, most recently Corvettes. He will be missed by many.
We would like to thank his doctor and nurses at the Center for Cancer care at Exeter Hospital, as well as the team at Rockingham VNA and Hospice for doing everything they could, and making sure he was as comfortable as possible.
There will be a memorial service Saturday, February 10th at 11:00 AM at the Morris Funeral Home at 45 N Main St., Ipswich, MA. Following the service, at 2:00 PM a celebration of life will be held at his daughter’s home at: 9 Wilders Grove Rd, Newton NH. There will be catering, and beverages served. All are welcome to attend both services on Saturday. Please note the residence is not handicap accessible (stairs).
There will be a private burial service in the Hamilton Cemetery held for the immediate family at a future date.
