Bruce was born on February 4, 1939 in French Camp, CA. As a young boy his family moved to Wheeler where he attended school and graduated Wheeler High School in 1957. Bruce was a lifelong cowboy both personally and occupationally. He worked at various ranches and feedlots around the Panhandle. Bruce loved the cowboy life and when he no longer could work cattle due to an injury, he stayed busy attending rodeos and he opened his own Boot & Saddle repair shop. He liked working with leather and he enjoyed braiding reins and was big fan of the sport of Boxing. Bruce loved people and could strike up a conversation with anyone. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Betty & George Topper; two sons, Brent Topper and Steve Helton; and by a brother, Roger Topper.
