Celebrating the Life of J. Rebman Jr.
Ask Bruce Rebman anything…and if he didn’t know the answer, he’d quickly find it for you. An intelligent man of many talents, he was more than racing and golfing…but he sure loved racingand golfing!
Bruce passed away Saturday morning March 1, 2014 in the Emergency Room of MedCentral Mansfield Hospital following a sudden illness. He was 57.
Born James Bruce Rebman, Jr. May 12, 1956 in Ashland, the son of James Bruce Rebman, Sr. and Delores (Woods) Rebman, he was graduated from Madison High School in 1974.
Engines and trucks and race cars were always an interest to Bruce, so it was only natural that he would purchase his father’s business Rebman Truck Service. Bruce operated the truck repair garage and trucking service (mostly bulk cement and general freight) with a fleet of 20 trucks.
He owned and operated Rebman Motor Sports, and travelled the sprint car racing circuit across the Eastern U.S. He was active with Must See Racing and Hoss Racing .
Bruce golfed with two leagues at Forest Hills Golf Course and was a member of Sons of Herman. He enjoyed woodworking, building furniture and toys, and built not only the cabinets for his home – but the whole log home.
He had a smile that was a glimpse to his generous heart, and was always willing to help others.
He is dearly loved by his family: his wife Denise (Kissel) Rebman, whom he married September 18, 1981 and was his travel companion to numerous tropical destinations; their children Wendy & Joshua Ball of Bellville, Jason & Mindy Kemp of Mansfield and Michelle & Kurt Rood of Columbus. Bruce cherished his grandchildren, and from a seat in his lap always ate popcorn with Chandler Ball, Mason Ball, Emmie Kemp, Laynie Kemp and Liam Rood, and was looking forward to a new granddaughter-on-the-way. Also surviving are a sister Diana (Barry Schenker) Rebman, M.D. of Berkley, CA; a brother Christopher (David Brownfield) Rebman of Los Angeles, CA and his mother-in-law Shirley J. Kissel Nelson of Mansfield.
He was preceded in death by his son Joseph Bradley “Joe” Rebman in a racing accident August 11, 2006, and also by a grandson Kyle Landen Ball, his parents, and father-in-law Robert L. Kissel.
The Rebman family will receive friends Thursday, March 6, 2014 from 1 to 4 and 5 to 8 p.m. in Berean Baptist Church, 2145 Middle Bellville Road, Mansfield, where a worship service, giving thanks for the life of Bruce Rebman will be held Friday at 10 a.m. Pastor TJ Waters will officiate. Burial will follow in Shenandoah Cemetery.
Contributions to fund his grandchildren’s education may be made through the funeral home.
