Obituary for Bruce Nelson Bagnell

May 2, 1951 - November 4, 2018
Nashua, New Hampshire | Age 67


Bruce Nelson Bagnell, age 67, passed away Sunday Nov. 4, 2018 at home with his family by his side. Bruce was a perfectionist and a kind, gentle soul. These qualities were clearly evident with how he loved and provided for his family. Many people were drawn to Bruce because of his unique sense of humor. When a situation became uncomfortable, his quick wit would lighten the mood with laughter. Bruce drew pleasure from being outdoors. He was an avid road cyclist and could tell you where most roads led because he had ridden them all by bike! He also enjoyed watching and feeding the wild birds. He spent a lot of time working on his lawn and enjoyed the compliments he received from passersby.
Bruce is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Diana Bagnell, of Nashua, NH and his three children; Jordan Bagnell, of Derry, NH; Chelsea Danner, of Columbia, MO and Johanna Bagnell, of Nashua, NH; three grandsons Brenton Bagnell, of Derry, NH; Dylan Danner, and William Danner, of Columbia, MO. He is also survived by his mother, Susan Bagnell, of Greenfield, MA and his sister, Ann Macewicz, of Turners Falls, MA.
A memorial service for Bruce will be held at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 3 Craftsman Ln., Amherst, NH on Saturday, November 10, at 1:00pm with a luncheon to follow. Memorial donations may be made to the Jimmy Fund of Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
