Mr. Bruce DePoe Rodgers

December 30, 1953 — December 1, 2020

Rodgers, Bruce DePoe, age 66, of Wind Lake, passed away December 1, 2020 with his loving family by his side at Waukesha Memorial Hospital. Bruce was born to Melbourne and JoAnn (nee. DePoe) Rodgers in Milwaukee, WI. He grew up in Mequon and graduated from Homestead High School. Bruce met the love of his life, Karen, and was married at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Milwaukee, WI. Bruce worked at Red Star Yeast, promoted to Maintenance Supervisor, for 31 years until they closed the doors. He ultimately retired from The MRD Group. Bruce raced a late model dirt car at the Hales Corner Speedway and played guitar for “Shakedown the Band” for many years. He also enjoyed fishing and camping with his grandson and riding his motorcycle. He dearly loved his family and friends; he will be sadly missed.
Bruce is survived by his mother JoAnn, loving wife Karen, children, Jeff, Jo (Josh Kaminski), and Mary; grandchild, Josey, and brother, Scott (Veronica).
