Uncle Bruce shared his warm smile and sense of humor with all who knew him. He loves his family, and is so proud of his kids and grandson - they are his world. He was a talented photographer, could repair electronic devices, was a passionate activist for wheelchair rights, and a creative chef. He knew much of his family history and had a wonderful singing voice. He was a great help-meet to his sweethearts and loving support to his elders. Bruce was true to his faith all the days of his life and his joy was full as he confirmed each of his children, blessing them to have the Comforter to be with them all their days. His family and friends will miss him greatly. We take comfort in the knowledge that he is in the company of so many who love him so much.
