Bruce Waters was born on January 11, 1959 in Los Angeles, California to Henry Homer Waters and Carrie (Edwards) Waters. Bruce matriculated from the Marion Public School System and later graduated from Marion High School “Class of 1977” in Marion, Louisiana. He later attended Grambling State University before joining the United States Navy Corp. Upon his discharge from the military, Bruce worked for many years with the United States Postal Service and the Veteran Affairs Medical Hospital.

Bruce will always be remembered for his witty and rambunctious style with everyone he came in contact with. He was hilarious and loved to laugh and make others laugh as well. In his leisure time, Bruce enjoyed dancing, swimming, playing dominos and spending quality time with his love ones.

Bruce was a beloved father to Ciarra Waters-Mullen and Imani Waters who was his pride and joy. Bruce transitioned from this earth with dignity and honor on Wednesday April 12, 2017 surrounded by his family of love, laughter, and support. We celebrate Bruce’s life and legacy, knowing that we will see him again in that great meeting place on the other side with Jesus Christ. Bruce was predeceased by his father, Henry Homer Waters and other relatives.

Bruce leaves to cherish his legacy and memories: his beloved mother, Carrie Sipho; his loving daughters: Ciarra Waters-Mullen and Imani Waters; his devoted sisters: Joyce Armstead, Debra Young, Cynthia Cooper and Jacqueline Meadows; his devoted brother, Calvin Edwards and wife Deidra; and a host of uncles and aunts, nephews, and nieces and other loving family members and friends that will greatly missed Bruce.
