In lieu of his hometown of Hollywood, California, Hough’s father, a radio announcer without a high school education, had chosen to relocate there for two reasons: first, he loved to fish, and second, he believed that rural northern Idaho was a better place for him and his wife to raise their five children.

Bruce attended Ricks College, which is now Brigham Young University-Idaho, after serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Central America. There, he competed in ballroom dancing alongside Mariann, his future wife. Sharee, the first of their five children, was soon to be born and the couple were married.
