Howland - Howard Bruce Hallett, “Bruce” age 82, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 29, 2019, at the Maine Veterans’ Home in Bangor. He was born, April 14, 1937 in Weymouth, Massachusetts, to Frank and Louise (Cass) Hallett. He graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology in 1957 with a two year degree in Engineering. He returned to school at Northeastern University to complete a four year Engineering degree.

Bruce enjoyed his career as a model ship builder, sailor, and avid craftsman. He was a devout father, Mason, and proudly served in the Coast Guard from 1954 until his retirement as a Commander in 1994.

Bruce was always looking to better the lives of others. He served as a member of numerous organizations, including the Howland Methodist Church, Howland Fire Department, Howland Selectman, Howland Plumbing & Code Enforcement Officer, Animal Control Officer, MSAD #31 School Board, and American Legion Post #97.

Bruce was a simple man who was easily identifiable from his Coast Guard attire to his laid back driving style. True to his old-fashion values, he was willing to work tirelessly for everything that he earned. When it came to his kids, he was willing to give everything he had for them, as self-sacrifice was truly his greatest quality. Nobody could have asked for a better friend, a more kind soul, or a greater father. He will be remembered through his children for the same values of honesty, integrity and generosity that he showed them throughout his lifetime.

Bruce is survived by his beloved Nancy, and their children, Bruce (Cassie), Nancy (Justin), Andrew (Toni), Amanda (Jonathan), Abby (Benjamin), Jonathan (Audrey), David (Megan), Robert, Theodore, and Amy (William). He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren; Tyler, Kaylee, Greyson, Cadence, Kallee, Grace, Andi, James, Scarlett, Nora, Lilly, Oliver, and Otis.

In addition to his parents, Bruce was predeceased by his brother, Robert, and grandchildren; Lucas and Ethan.

Bruce will be forever remembered by his loving friends and extended family.

A service will be held 11 a.m. Sunday, June 2, 2019, at the Howland Methodist Church, 23 Coffin St, Howland, followed by a celebration of life at American Legion Post #97, 4 Front St, Howland, from 12-2 p.m.

Memorial donations in memory of Bruce can be made to Enfield Station School Library at 561 Hammett Rd, Enfield, ME 04493, and the Maine Veterans’ Home at 44 Hogan Rd, Bangor, ME 04401.
