Bruce and Judy have three sons; Steve (Mary), Mark (Dawn), and Brad (Vallie); two grandsons; Dustin (Paige) Simmons and Matt Simmons, and their mother Amy Loftis. Judy lived in Mesick, Michigan in the home they built after Bruce retired. She enjoyed time with her friends, playing cards, trips to the casino, and other social activities.
