Bruce L. Cornett

August 19, 1951 — August 27, 2021

North Manchester

Bruce L. Cornett, 70, North Manchester, Indiana, passed away at his home on August 27, 2021. The son of Samuel Chester and Alma (Barger) Cornett, Bruce was born in Hyden, Kentucky on August 19, 1951.

In 1972 Bruce moved to Lagro, Indiana from Salem, Indiana where he grew up. A year later he moved to North Manchester, Indiana, where he lived until his passing. For twenty-seven years Bruce supported his family by working in maintenance for United Technologies, and after their closing he started working for G & S Metal in Wabash, Indiana until retirement.

Bruce relished in his time spent hunting, fishing, and enjoying the company of his good friends and family. He also enjoyed working on cars and was absolutely in love with his 1966 Ford Fairlane. However, nothing could match his love for his two grandsons and five great-grandbabies.

The loving memory of Bruce L. Cornett will be forever cherished by his daughters, Pam (Don Coble) Strasser, North Manchester, Tracy (Thaine) Tribalski, Etna Green, and Melissa (Michael) Herring, North Manchester; brothers, Paul (Mary) Cornett, Laketon, Michael Cornett, Salem, and Mitchell Cornett, Saul, Kentucky; two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Bruce was preceded in death by his parents, Samuel and Alma Cornett; brother, Robert Cornett; sisters, Glenna Jackson, Eva Rogers, and Lillie Cornett; and one great-grandson, Matthew Cornett.

At the wishes of Bruce, no services will be held.
