Son of the late G. Alfred and Virginia Whitcomb, Bruce was born and raised in Rocky Hill, CT. After graduating high school, Bruce worked for Elmore Vault Company and shortly after joined the US Navy and spent six years working on aircraft carriers as an Aviation Electrician. After his military service, Bruce began his long and successful career with The Hartford Insurance Group in property management, making his way up to Executive level, while proudly raising his family in Rocky Hill.
