I am sitting here watching The Players Tournament and thinking of Bruce. Hilton Head will forever be linked to Bruce in my memory.....talking for hours with Lorraine, Diane, and Bruce while in the pool, eating at the Irish Pub, gathering at their apartment for dinner. He was such a loving husband, father, and grandfather, always ready with a big smile and a bigger hug. Perhaps he and Bob Render are playing golf together right now. You will be missed.

I met Bruce several years ago, when he stopped by to drop off donated items
for a Boxer OC Rescue garage sale, to help raise funds for a boxer that had been hit by a car and needed surgery. He also came by a couple of our adoption
events just to see the boxers and say hello. I'm sorry for your loss. Brenda ~ Boxer Orange County Rescue
I met Bruce when I hired on with Beckman Instruments in 1974. He worked in Computer Methods and I in Computer Applications. Eventually I became an internal customer of Bruce's team albeit a very vocal one. That was probably the reason I was eventually transferred to Computer Methods working for Bruce. I worked for him from 1981 until he was outsourced to SMS in 1996. He taught me a lot about the inner workings of Beckman's Computer Center on Birch Street. Knowledge that would serve me well throughout my business career. He was a great boss who had high standards, did not micro manage his subordinates and was always fair. We spent a good deal of time traveling together to conventions, vendor presentations and the European Admin Center in Nyon, Switzerland. It was during this time that we became friends and I learned the kind of person Bruce really was. He loved his family and was very proud of his sons. He enjoyed watching professional sports and was very competitive when it came to golf. I believe it over 20 years ago when the foursome of Bruce, Loran Whitehorn, Wayne Weisman and myself started golfing together on a monthly basis. Bruce always seemed to have the newest golf clubs on the market which made it especially satisfying the few times one or more of us were able to best him on the links. After I retired in 2010, Bruce invited me to play in his Monday morning golf foursome. All of these activities will continue as Bruce would have wanted, but his presence will definitely be missed.
