Bruce Crandall of Monticello passed away on February 4, 2020; though his last years were marked with many health challenges, Bruce passed peacefully and was surrounded by family. Born on June 25, 1944 to Keith & Florence (Wannarka) Crandall in St. Peter, he went on to graduate from Monticello High School in 1962. After service in the U.S. Navy, Bruce returned to Monticello, where he met his wife of 40 years, Joyce (Reuvers) of Faribault.

Bruce is survived by his wife Joyce; sons Dan (Beth) Crandall, Jim (Deb) Davidson, Duff (Natalie) Davidson; daughter Mickey Davidson; sister Carole (Russ) Larson; grandchildren Anthony, Maddie, Anna, Maria, Sarah, Livia, Hanna, Amelia, & Charlie; and his beloved dog, Itsy Bitsy.
