bryce 04Honorable veteran, dedicated husband, loving father, and shepherd of all of God’s creatures, Andrew Wallace Bryce, of Mimbres, New Mexico, previously of Marlboro, Vermont, died on September 8, 2018. He was born in Bayonne, NJ on August 30, 1930, the son of Scottish parents who came to America in June of 1923, via Canada.

A child of the Great Depression, he came of age during WWII, quitting High School at sixteen and cajoling his reluctant mother into “fixing” his enlistment papers so he could “join up” in the US Army. That was in December of 1945, following an earlier fiasco in joining the US Navy. It was a time when the country was still celebrating the victories over Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, and the US Military had relaxed its rigorous combat training and reduced the enlistment time of volunteers to 18 months.
