AICHROTH, Bruce Floyd
Dec. 26, 1928 - Oct. 20, 2010

Resident of Elverta

In loving memory of Bruce Aichroth, beloved husband to wife Dorothy Aichroth for 58 years. Dorothy passed after a long battle with strokes in March of this year. Bruce, though battling multiple ailments himself, including cancer, was a devoted caretaker to Dorothy, keeping her at the home by his side where together they spent their remaining years loving seven children and five grandchildren.

Bruce grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania along with his three brothers, Wes, Calvin, Bud, and his sisters, June, Caroline and Ruth. Bruce left his home to serve his country first as a U.S. Marine and then continued and finished his military career retiring in the U.S. Air Force.

Bruce finished his working years at the Sacramento Children's Home until he retired to spend the rest of his days with his family. The Children's Home was a place where Bruce continued showing his love for children by watching over them a a guard every night with his dog Apollo. Bruce's love for children also found him often playing Santa Claus at the Cal Expo Tree Lot during the holiday. Bruce enjoyed horse racing, bowling, watching football, making homemade soups and being with his loved ones.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate Bruce's life with services to be held at East Lawn Cemetery at 5757 Greenback Lane in Citrus Heights at 2pm Friday, November 5 with reception immediately following.
