Obituary

Bruce L. Holmquist, retired West Bridgewater police officer, 76, passed away June 5, 2022 unexpectedly. The son of the late Florence and Robert L. Holmquist, he graduated from West Bridgewater High School and the Police Academy and took classes at Massasoit. Dedicated to his community, he served as School Safety officer in his early career, was a beloved high school football coach, Constable of West Bridgewater, member Zoning Board of Appeals, and President of the Council on Aging. He was a life member of Paul Revere Masonic Lodge and helped manage its Angel Fund, and was Sergeant of Arms and life member of Samoset Rod and Gun Club.

Bruce is survived by his partner of 53 years, Pamela J. Humphreys and was known as Uncle Booey to his nieces and nephews, numerous godchildren, grandnieces and grandnephews.
