Bruce Edward Harroff, a veteran of the US Army, passed away on November 8, 2023, surrounded by family. Ed, as he was known by many, was born on July 5, 1946, to George Harroff and Lula M Post. After graduation, Ed went to California, where he was drafted to play for the Cincinnati Reds, but he never got the chance to play. Instead, he was drafted into the army, where he served for 4 years. The US Army awarded Ed with a Bronze Star.
After his time in the army, he returned home and married Linda French. They were blessed with three children. He was an avid baseball coach and baseball commissioner for many years.
