Bruce V. Ley aka 'Chhouy'
METHUEN Bruce V. Ley aka 'Chhouy', 50, of Methuen, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, February 3, 2016.
He was born on January 10, 1966 in Battambang, Cambodia and was a son of the late Kao Ley and the late Phuong (Taing) Ley. At the age of 13, Bruce immigrated to the United States and resided in Lowell, before relocating to Salem, New Hampshire, where he started his family. He attended schools in Lowell and graduated from Lowell High School and attended UMass Lowell.
More recently, Bruce resided in Methuen and was a member of the Glory Buddhist Temple in Lowell. Along with his family, he owned and operated Top Donut in Lawrence for 18 years. He was extremely dedicated to helping his community and gained tremendous respect for his support. He enjoyed fishing, riding his motorcycle, and playing billiards.
