Obituary of Bruce E Marich
Beloved husband, brother, father, pop pop, uncle, friend, mentor, phenomenal soul Bruce E. Marich passed away Thursday, December 2, 2021. He was 80 years young. Bruce lived a full and wondrous life.
Born in New Brunswick to the late Ernest and Margaret (Gombas) Marich, he was a fifty year resident of North Brunswick. He was an administrator at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, positively impacting lives for 36 years before retiring this past July.
Bruce was a communicant to Our Lady of Lourdes R.C. Church in Milltown. In his lifetime he actively engaged in professional associations like NJACAC and MCSCA and community service organizations like Kiwanis International and Circle K International where he served as Governor and District Administrator. Bruce was a Loyal Son of Rutgers University as well as a committed and involved alumnus who was excited to begin his post-retirement life as an Alumni Senator with the Rutgers University Senate.
His adventurous spirit took him on travels around the world, making new friends everywhere he went. He had a love of nature, as much for the beaches and oceans as for the mountains and trails. He believed in the transformative power of kindness and compassion. Bruce made a unique difference in every life he touched.
