We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Wilson & Kratzer Chapel of San Ramon Valley
After a courageous and hard-fought battle with a rare and aggressive type of lymphoma, Bruce Charles Mabardy peacefully passed away from treatment-related complications. Bruce was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and was raised in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts. He relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area with the rest of his family in 1958, and he remained there for the rest of his life. A resident of Danville since 1989, Bruce worked as a probation officer for San Mateo County for more than 30 years. He was an upstanding human being: a loving and faithful husband, exemplary father, devoted son, gentle brother, and a role model for all who knew him. Bruce enjoyed traveling throughout Europe, especially Italy, and as a result, he developed a taste for the finer things in life including designer suits, ties, and shoes; gourmet food; premium wines; and luxury cars. Spending time with family and friends was his favorite hobby and top priority. He will be remembered for his supreme level of integrity, honesty, loyalty, quick-witted and goofy sense of humor, refined and sophisticated style and personality, and his toughness and resilience. He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Maria; sons Daniel (Katie) and Michael (Lisa); grandsons Brandon and Benny; his brother, Russell and nieces and nephews. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered. Rest in peace, Bruce. Donations can be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
