von ROSENVINGE, Bruce G. Age 60, of Cambridge, MA, passed away suddenly of natural causes on Friday, December 3rd. He was the beloved husband of Susan (Susie) and devoted father of Petie & his wife Maeve, Perry, & his partner Anne King. He also leaves his sister Valerie von Rosenvinge; his nephew Chapin Porcella; and four nieces Gillian Kradin & her husband Ben & their children Ada and Jacob, Katie Knowles & her husband Roccou, Emily Borelli & her husband Ross & their daughter Madison, and Sarah Wicks; his godson Conor Fraylick; and Bertha, his faithful bernese mountain dog. He graduated from Wellesley High School, Babson College, and the New England School of Law. He was a lawyer by trade and an artist, storyteller, athlete and friend by nature. A lifetime performer and contributor to local theater, the highlights of Bruce's life include his involvement in the Dover Theater Foundation, his position on the TCC paddle tennis B-Team, seeing his son Petie get married this past November, and the next round of golf. An eccentric, incredibly patient, and remarkably loved figure within his community, Bruce brought out the best in those around him. Bruce could often be found walking his dog Bertha, with a cigar in hand, wearing at least one item of bright pink clothing. His colorful sense of style on the golf course was only outdone by the brilliance of his personality. The celebration of Bruce's life will be never ending by the countless people whose lives were improved by his presence. To know him, was to love him. Per Bruce's request no Memorial Service will take place. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to The Dover Foundation, P.O. Box 69, Dover, MA, 02030 in Bruce's memory.

I remember Bruce when Perry and Zack were growing up in Weston. He was always so friendly and made Zack feel welcome to his home. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May his memory be eternal

I met Bruce on the first day of law school in September of 1986 and we became instant friends. Saturated with brilliance, personality, style and humor, Bruce had an essence unlike any other. His charm, charisma and ability to find humor in any situation were very unique. We remained good friends throughout the ups and downs of our lives and shared a mutual respect for each other over the years. We all will remember him fondly and miss him dearly, but will not forget Bruce. My sincere condolences to Susie, Petie, Perry and Valerie. May he rest in peace always.

Bruce was a kind and steady figure in my life as a young associate in the '90s. I have not seen him in many years, but hearing of his death saddens me deeply. I remember him fondly as a tennis player, scratch ticket player, and a friend who always kept things light. My condolences to his family. RIP Bruce.

The world is an emptier, paler, sadder & quieter place without Brucie. What joy & laughter he brought to so many of us for so many (but not enough) years! We will live every day to the fullest, laugh & love more on his behalf, and always remember that great smile and laugh of his, and his twinkling blue eyes. Rest peacefully, my friend. Love you-
