He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Trinnie (Romero) Bridge; sons, John Douglas (Linda) and James Curtis (Angela); daughter-in-law, Mary Bridge; granddaughters, Taylor Bridge and Sierra Bridge; and step grandson, Alex Lucero.
Bob served in the U.S. Army and retired from the U.S. Postal Service as a letter carrier.
Bob never met a stranger and if you lost him in the crowd, you just had to wait because who knows who he was talking to. He couldn't just stand near a person without engaging in conversation.
He had many passions, but the one that kept him on his toes were the PITTSBURGH STEELERS. He traveled to Pittsburgh as well as other states several times during football season to watch and yell at his team.
A sport that he also enjoyed was baseball, not Major League, but Little League. He coached his sons from age 6 to 15 and the games with him there were never quiet. He didn't, however give up that sport, every spring and summer he spent his days at the La Cueva Varsity field, interacting with the ball team and attending all their games.
Bob converted to Catholicism in 2006 and enjoyed serving in different ministries at Risen Savior Catholic Church. He fought the good fight, he finished the race, he kept the faith.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, December 4th from 5-7 pm with a Rosary being recited at 6 pm at Daniels Family - Wyoming Chapel. Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Thursday, December 5th at 9:30 am at Risen Savior Catholic Church with burial to follow in Gate of Heaven Cemetery.
