On Sunday, September 20, 2020, Bruce Gossett, 72, of Amarillo went home with the Lord.

Bruce was born November 27, 1947 to Martin and Kathryn Gossett. He graduated from Texas A&M in 1971 and he was a devoted Aggie until the end. Bruce’s magnetic personality easily won the heart of anyone he met, and in 1993, he married the love of his life, Linda. Over the next 27 years, Bruce and Linda shared amazing laughter and an unparalleled love. He was a big fan of the Cubs, enjoyed Las Vegas, and he was always ready to dance. Bruce could brighten the darkest days, and he will be tremendously missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Martin and Kathryn.

Bruce is survived by his wife, Linda; his brother, Byron; his three daughters, Joanna, Brandi, and Shawna; his sister-in-law, Tricia; his two sons-in-law, James and George; his step-daughter, Lacie; his step-son, Ryan; his two nephews, Clark and Jordan; his niece, Abby; and his nine grandchildren, Meggan, Brandon, Hadyn, Casyn, Karsyn, Bergan, Jordan, Blake, and Coby.

Services will be held on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at the Boxwell Brothers Ivy Chapel, 2800 Paramount Blvd., at 1:00 P.M. Burial will be at Memory Gardens Cemetery. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, Amarillo.
