Chief Petty Officer Bruce Anthony Ambrose was born in Grove Hill, AL to parents, Johnny and Theresa Ambrose. Anthony grew up in Grove Hill with his sisters, Irish and Nicole and brother, Labaron. Bruce (known to hometown friends and family as Ant or Anthony) was a kind loving and helpful person. He is described by many of his classmates and fellow Navy colleagues as one of the most reliable best friends a person could ask for. Bruce enjoyed the outdoors. He was a true country guy who loved to fish, hunt, and ride 4-wheelers. During high school, Bruce won multiple awards for 4-H Forestry contest. After graduating Clarke Country High School in 1990, he joined the Navy. During his time in the service, he married wife, Beatrice and had 2 children, Julisha and Anthony. He continued to do anything to help his community and the people around him which was no surprise, to his family, that he choose and excelled in the Navy. Serving his country was an honor to him and his family.
