Blase, Bruce Quentin, 60, of Havertown passed away on February 5, 2020 with his family by his side. Bruce was born and raised in South Philadelphia, and always considered it his home. After graduation from high school, he worked at the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, and because of that experience, developed a life-long interest and skill in the stock market. He also worked for PNC Bank and eventually was a financial software developer for the Vanguard Group in Malvern for over 21 years. Bruce was the quintessential Philadelphian—he loved sports, trips to Wawa and the Jersey shore. After moving to Havertown, he became active in the community and was involved in athletic organizations. He served as a coach in various softball leagues, won state championships, and enjoyed his time on the field with his team players from all over Delaware County.
Bruce was the devoted son of the late Frank and Theresa Blase, adoring husband of Dolores (Dee, nee Girini), beloved father of Lindsay and Amanda, loving brother of Frances Rose (Michael) Utkus, a most fun uncle to Audrey and Julia Utkus, and caring son-in-law to Ronald and the late Gloria Girini and brother-in-law to Diana, Ron (Kim) and Joseph Girini.
Relatives and friends are invited to his viewing on Monday evening from 7-9 pm and Tuesday morning from 9:30-10:15 am at Sacred Heart Church, 105 Wilson Avenue, Havertown, PA 19083. A mass of Christian burial will be held at 10:30 am followed by interment at Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery, 1600 South Sproul Road, Springfield PA.
