Bruce Allison, 58, passed away at home surrounded by his family on Monday, March 4, 2024 after a courageous battle with prostate cancer.

Bruce was born on July 25, 1965 to Homer Daigle and Shirley Allison in New Britain, Connecticut. He attended E C Goodwin Technical High School, graduating in 1983, and went on to study at Hartford State Technical College. In 1988, Bruce met the love of his life, Diane Morey. They later married and welcomed two wonderful daughters. Relocating to Arizona in 1993, Bruce began a career in quality management, joining Radiall USA, Inc. in 2004. For the next 20 years, he thoroughly enjoyed his job at Radiall, particularly the strong relationships he built with both colleagues and customers. Traveling for the company to many locations worldwide, Bruce often expressed his gratitude for the special experiences these trips offered him such as skiing in the French Alps and fishing along the Mexican coast. Bruce was an avid golfer and an enthusiastic, life-long fan of the Boston Red Sox and Dallas Cowboys.  He shared his passion for sports while coaching his daughters’ recreational softball and soccer teams.

Bruce was, above all else, a family man. There was nothing he wouldn’t do to ensure the happiness of his family. He made friends everywhere he went due to his easy-going personality coupled with his genuine interest in others. Bruce was an exceptional person and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Bruce is survived by his wife, Diane; daughters, Jeannine and Kayla (Kayla Dimas) Allison; granddaughter, Delilah Allison of San Tan Valley, Arizona; and brothers, Richard and Philip Daigle of Connecticut. He was preceded in death by his mother, Shirley Allison; father, Homer Daigle; brothers, Jeff Allison, James Daigle, Frank Daigle, and Robert Daigle; sister, Diane Daigle, and in-laws, Keith and Marilyn Morey.

There will be two memorial services, one in Arizona and one in Connecticut.

The Arizona memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at Gilbert Memorial Park, 2100 East Queen Creek Road, Gilbert AZ 85297, with a reception to follow.

    Bruce , Rest in peace my friend. You taught me a lot in Quality Inspection. Thank You, You will be missed.

  • Prayers to family and friends, I grew up with Bruce, first met him for baseball practice at 13 yes old, he was first one there laying in the grass with his boom box playing ZZ Top’s cheap sunglasses… we remained good friends until he moved to Arizona and we lost track of each other… I had a dream and he was there like yesterday, I’m sorry he’s gone, but he’s still in many hearts I’m sure.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Bruce was a kind and beautiful soul, and always strived to be better. I enjoyed our family activities and trips together he had a wonderful sense of humor and fun to be around. His faith and family were always so very important to him. He touched so many lives in the very best way and I am so grateful and blessed to have had the chance to know him.
    Rest in peace my friend until we meet again.

    I’ve known Bruce since I was five years old. I met his oldest daughter, Jeannine on our first day of kindergarten and I was inseparable from the family throughout my whole childhood. He was a second father to me and raised me like one of his own. He emphasized the importance of respect for all people, to be kind and giving, the value of family and friendships, and how to try to have a good attitude even when the Cowboys lost. Bruce treated me like I was his own daughter, and I will never forget his positive energy and radiant smile. Bruce and his family have been with me through hard times, and I am so sad I am not there to put to rest his beautiful soul. May his spirit live on..

  • Bruce I want to be just like you. You lived the life full of goodness to others. You are forever the coolest guy I’ve met. I wish we had more golf games together but I will always remember the legend that you are. My condolences to your beautiful family. Until we meet again my friend.

  • This comes as very sad news. Bruce was a very down to earth, and extremely intelligent person. It was a pleasure to know and work with you. Just heard the sad news. The world was a better place having you in it…My condolences go out to your family and the family of friends you’ve built throughout the years…
    Your friend
