Bruce Buttler Marble, age 87, passed away peacefully on 2/2/16. He was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, to Wiley and Harriet Marble. He had one sister, Judith Marble, with whom he enjoyed a lifelong close relationship. After high school, he joined the Army and served in the Korean War. After his mother's death, his father and sister relocated to Albuquerque. When he left the military, he too relocated to Albuquerque, where he lived the rest of his life.

Bruce was a talented and accomplished machinist, welder and mechanic. When Bruce built it, it would last a lifetime. His welded creations were stunning as well as functional and durable.

He was a lifelong bachelor.

He is survived by his sister, Judith Carr; his niece, Patricia Gallegos and her husband, David; and his dear friend and neighbor of twenty years, Diane Valenzuela.

He will be intered at the National Cemetery in Santa Fe.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Animal Humane Association in Albuquerque.
