BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Bruce Buggs along with his wife, Alisha, and their two daughters, Alia, and Brucia, Bruce has built the foundation and legacy of Buggs Funeral Home with the belief that, although grieving, bereaved families should know that the technical aspects of planning funeral arrangements for their loved one don’t have to be a burdensome task.

Buggs never hesitates for those in need, whether it is assisting someone with a startup business or helping the homeless.

He is a true philanthropist as he has donated time, materials, funds and labor to the renovations and upkeep of several places within the community, including Full Gospel Deliverance Church, In Season Ministries, South Brevard Ministerial Alliance, Cocoa Hill Cemetery, as well as several other historical cemeteries.

He has a heart for assisting, both monetarily and volunteering his time and equipment and because of his giving spirit and has been honored in many capacities for these efforts.

Buggs has helped families purchase clothing for their loved ones who couldn’t afford it. He has even taken the time to research and refer families to attorneys who could help them with needs that extended beyond those of the funeral service.

He has truly made a positive name for himself – not only by giving back to the community but through the caring and compassionate service he provides to each family.

He has extended himself beyond expectations when it comes to ensuring that each family’s personalized needs are met.
