Bruce Bridges was born on Mother’s Day, May 10, 1959, in New Orleans, Louisiana, to the late Jeanette Bridges and Albert Parker. He grew up in New Orleans Sixth Ward and was the eldest of four children. Bruce moved to the Washington Metropolitan area in 1989, where he worked for numerous construction companies. He met in April 2007 and later married the love of his life, Cheryl Lovelle Bridges, on October 22, 2011. His love of construction began when he worked with his uncle Jimmy Hayden, who taught him all about the construction trade. His passion for construction prompted him to entrepreneurship. He established his own business, Tribest Construction LLC, in 2013. He would often quote “You have tried the rest, now try the best,” from which came the name of his company. As CEO and owner of Tribest Construction LLC, he found his niche and became certified and licensed as a construction manager and worked as a 203k Consultant and General Contractor. Armed with a strong work ethic, Bruce worked his way up through the ranks of building, constructing many residential and commercial businesses. He was a detailed person who affectionately called himself “God’s carpenter,” for his passion was to build and finish what he started. He was an expert finisher in the trade and was always called on by colleagues as the top finisher. Bruce was a current member of Kingdom of God Worship Center, in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, under the pastorship of Pastors Al and S. Elaine Dutch. He loved participating in prayer with his loving wife during Thursday evening prayer sessions. He previously attended Remnant Worship Center and served on the worship team, where he would be seen playing the worship music and banging his tambourine.
