Obituary of Bruce J Barclay

Bruce J Barclay

October 17, 1956 – May 14, 2019

 

Bruce J Barclay passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, May 14, 2019, at 62 years old.

Bruce was born in Washington, IN, the third child of William and Viva Barclay. The family later moved to Indianapolis and Bruce graduated from Marshall High School. A father at 19, Bruce balanced work, school, and his family to earn degrees from Purdue University and Indiana University School of Law. He worked as a patent lawyer for Eli Lilly, then as Deputy General Counsel for Guidant Corp. While he was trained as a lawyer, he enjoyed all aspects of business.  Following Guidant, he became CEO for Vascular Architects, in San Jose, CA, SurModics, Inc. in Eden Prairie, MN, and Hansen Medical in Mountain View, CA.

 

Bruce’s greatest joy in life was his family and he loved nothing more than a house full of kids and grandkids. He is survived by his loving wife Susan, their children Kathryn and Caroline, his first wife, Linda Barclay and their children Jason (Sarah) and Jaime Perez (Jake), grandchildren Annie, Will, Beau, Cole, Carter and Kennedy, his father William, his sisters Paula Falkenberg and Juanita Olsen (Alan) and his brother Byron. He was preceded in death by his mother, Viva.
