What a good friend and mentor Bruce (and Maureen) was to me. Hospitality was his middle name and he was passionate about the things he loved.... especially Maureen, his boys (grandkids, too), and Massillon Football! I loved the man, always upbeat and happy, and always spurred me on to go for what I wanted, and cheered me on every step of the way. I will never forget our times together at his home in Delaware.... Christmas parties, food, the pool, and drinks! Take care Gearin and Josh and families.... you had a wonderful Dad!!

Many fond memories of Bruce during our high school years. Don’t believe I ever saw him without a smile on his face. He made friends easily with his outgoing personality. We all felt lucky to have him for a friend. He loved clothes, and always wore the latest fashions. Last time I saw him, some years ago, almost didn’t recognize him. Dressed in jeans and flannel shirt. Handsome as ever.......with that great, warm, smile.....Sending prayers for his children and granddaughters.
