Bruce Edward Foggy

Bruce was a naturally kindhearted person that greeted everyone with a great smile and warm embrace. He continues to be treasured by all who knew him and will be greatly missed.



Bruce Edward Foggy was the third child of Booker T. Foggy Jr. and Albertine Foggy (n’ee Butler), born in San Francisco, California on December 11, 1959. From the first moments of breath, Bruce rarely stopped moving forward.

Bruce began demonstrating resilience at a very young age, benefiting from the special support he received from his parents and other family members, especially his Aunt Carrie and Uncle John.
Bruce attended middle school in San Francisco. When his parents divorced in the late sixties, he moved to Sacramento with his Mom, Albertine (Tinie), where she met Percy Green. Tinie and Percy eventually married and formed a solid home for Bruce once again. Percy become a second Father to Bruce and they adored each other throughout their entire relationship.

Bruce went on to Rio Americano High School, in Sacramento, where he graduated in the upper part of his class in 1977. With the Direct Order from his Mom and Stepdad (Percy) he attended Sacramento State University where he graduated with a degree in Geology.

After finishing college, Bruce went to work for the State of California in the Geological Survey Department. After working for the State for many years, and after many promotions, Bruce became restless and wanted to put his energies into promoting his welfare by going into business for himself.

He came up with the brilliant idea pertaining to highway safety, which guided him towards developing different kind of cargo restraints for pick-up trucks, vans, large trucks and cargo airplanes. After several designs and manufacturing attempts, hard work and perseverance, Bruce finally came up with Gladiator Cargo Nets. Gladiator Cargo Nets became a huge success, landing him contracts with many California auto part stores, the U.S. Navy, Disney, Tesla, General Motors and many other pick-up truck dealers. This was Bruce’s baby that he not only birthed, but raised it to be very viable.

Bruce leaves behind his sister, Joan Foggy, brother Lamonte Foggy, Aunt Carrie Porter, Uncle John Foggy, Aunt Emma McGowan, many cousins and close friends. Bruce’s parents preceded him in death…Mom (Albertine Green), Dad (Booker T. Foggy, Jr.), and Stepdad (Percy Green) along with his longtime best friend John Gorman.

Now…we ask that you always remember Bruce with the smile he always shared and the recognition of his strength, determination and accomplishments.
Today we mourn the passing of a son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. For the tomorrows to come, we celebrate his life and find meaningful ways to maintain a close contact with his memory.

Met Bruce in 1981 at The Graduate by Sac State, along with friends that are still close after 40+ years! I especially enjoyed how my husband Dave (they met in 1979) and I got to spend a lot of time the past couple of years going to concerts with Bruce. Last saw him on his 64th Birthday, when we played the Beatles song and I told him "Yes, I'll still love you when you're 64, and forever" and gave him a kiss on his cheek.
