Bruce William Conover, 72, of Independence, KY, passed away Wednesday, October 20, 2021. He was an only child to Charles Raymond Conover and Vera Mae (Neu) Jump both deceased. Bruce was married to his high school sweetheart Kathy Lee (Morgan) for 52 years.
Bluegrass music fed his soul. He enjoyed going to music festivals, Broadway theater and other performances. Bruce camped with friends and family and then travelled via cruise ships after retirement from Duke Energy. In his earlier years he had a passion for knives, guns, and fishing. He was a provider and educator to his family. He would always follow a word of wisdom with "mark that down in your book." Bruce found pleasure in jewelry design and collecting wildlife and landscape art.
