Bruce was born in Racine on Jan. 8, 1948, to the late Betty (nee: Bush) and Anthony Volpintesta, the dearly loved son of the late Joyce (nee: Tully) Volpintesta.

Bruce was a formidable artist, who studied at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. He was employed by Racine Unified where he was a proud member and Steward of SEIU Local 152. Bruce was best known for his love of motorcycles. He and Sandy spent many days of their 18-year marriage riding his Harley. Bruce also enjoyed fishing and playing cribbage and always had to have the last word.

Bruce is survived by his wife, Sandy; his daughters: Jenissee, Haley, Kara, and Alexandra; stepsons: Justin, Max, and Cody; 11 grandchildren; two great-granddaughters; and many other family members.


The Volpintesta family will have a private celebration of life and request that, in lieu of flowers, memorial remembrances be made to the Eco-Justice Center or the Cardiovascular Research Center Fund.
