Bruce A. Mrofka, age 73 of Delaware, OH, passed away Saturday, February 20, 2021, in Delaware. He was born August 15, 1947 in Massillon, OH to the late Albert and Vivian (Kula) Mrofka.
Left to cherish Bruce’s memory are his sons: Gearin (Samantha) Mrofka, and Josh (Brandy) Mrofka; granddaughters: Ann Maureen, June Margaret, and Marianne Lennon Mrofka; and several other relatives and friends.
Bruce graduated from Kent State with a master’s degree in sociology. He went on to serve as a human resource manager for the State of Ohio. In 2010, he served as the interim head of human resources for the Secretary of State’s office. Bruce was an avid snow skier, and he loved his hometown Massillon Tiger Football Team. Even though he hadn’t lived in Massillon for over fifty years, he always bought season tickets, attended the games every year, and was a member of the Massillon Tigers Football Booster Club. Bruce was very generous and outgoing. He enjoyed hosting friends, and making lasting friendships wherever he went in life. Most of all, Bruce enjoyed spending time with his family, and his granddaughters in particular.
In addition to his parents, Bruce was preceded in death by his wife of 32 years, Maureen Fitzgerald.
