Bruce was a mentor when I was in high school as a summer missionary with the River Ministry in Crystal City. He had a big heart for people especially young people. He was an encourager, a teacher, and one who helped you believe in yourself. Afer I married, I took my wife to meet him because he had such an impact on my life. She loved him immediately.

Bruce was a wonderful preacher but more than that he was a pastor in every sense of the word. With a shepherd's heart, he understood farmers, business owners, gas station attendants, doctors, athletes, and nurses - people from all walks of life. He loved and sought to minister to them all.

Bruce's heart was big enough love bus ministry, Saturday School, Nachos, people from other cultures, Family Camp at Alto Frio, and gangly teenage boys from Louisiana who probably caused him headaches he did not need but put up with - but did with grace.

He loved to have fun and He loved music - when I was around it was Credence Clearwater Revival. I can still see him dancing and singing "Proud Mary!"

A fond memory: I was sitting in his office at FBC Crystal City talking with him. He had a giant pink eraser that said: "I make big mistakes". I was playing with it when it broke in two. Bruce looked at me and said, "My stars, John now I can"t make any more mistakes." I don't know if he ever made any big mistakes, but I do know that it was no mistake that Bruce Stoval taught me things I still use today. Thank you, Lord, for allowing me to know Bruce Stoval. And thank you, Bruce, for allowing God to use you in my life.

I count it an honor and joy to call Bruce Stovall my friend, mentor, and co-laborer for the Kingdom's sake.

May God bless all of Bruce's family members and whisper to your hearts - Your husband, dad, grandfather, and great-grandfather is more alive today than he has ever been - singing and dancing with Jesus!
