Bruce D. Hillier of Wauconda Prayers for Bruce D. Hillier, 58, will be said at 9:30 a.m. Friday, May 4, at the Ahlgrim Family Funeral Home, 415 S. Buesching Road, Lake Zurich IL 60047. A funeral Mass will follow at 10 a.m. at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, 33 S. Buesching Road, Lake Zurich, IL 60047. Father David Ryan will officiate. Interment will be in Windridge Memorial Park Cemetery, Cary, Ill. Visitation will be held Thursday, May 3, from 3 until 9 p.m. at the funeral home. Bruce was born April 1, 1954, in Detroit, Mich., and he passed away peacefully Friday, April 27, 2012, at Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington. Bruce graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in mechanical engineering. Most of his career was spent working in the cellular phone division at Motorola in Libertyville, and he finished his career at Sears Headquarters in Hoffman Estates. Bruce enjoyed visiting national parks with his family, coaching volleyball, a sarcastic comment or two and taking care of animals. He taught his daughter to have an infinite amount of patience, and to always take the scenic route. His perfect day would include teeing off at the golf course in the morning, lunch at Bellalukes with his wife, an episode of Seinfeld, and fishing at dusk off his pier on Bangs Lake. He found pleasure and peace in life's simple events. Survivors include his wife, Janet M. Hillier (nee Dailing); daughter, Amy (fiance, Kevin Jackson) Hillier; brother, Ronald (Julie) Hillier; sister, Kathleen (Daniel) McLaughlin; his twin, Brian (Brenda) Hillier; and many nieces and nephews. Bruce was preceded death by his parents, Donald L. and Barbara (nee Peltier) Hillier. Memorials will be appreciated to the Sierra Club.
