Bruce Roehrs passed away in his home on Saturday, March 13th, 2010. He was a genuine friend to many and always had your back and a kind word to boot. An ardent music fan as well as a long time column writer/contributor for Maximum Rocknroll, Bruce lived and breathed punk rock. Bruce will be sorely missed.
Bruce’s resting place
Bruce made San Francisco, CA his home the mid ’80s and over the years he took many of his friends, both locals and out-of-towners, to SF’s Columbarium. Built in 1898, this landmark contains the memorial sites of some of the city’s founding families as well as some of its more notorious occupants, such as Dirk Dirksen (the punk music promoter nicknamed the “Pope of Punk”). The Columbarium is a non-denominational memorial site that Bruce loved for its beauty, craftsmanship, and tranquility, and it was where his memorial service was held on Friday, April 9th, 2010.
