I remember Bruce from McDowell. He was always loads of fun.

He was always telling jokes. He had a gregarious personality and

Loads of friends. My condolences to his children and family.

Upon receiving the news regarding the tragedy of Bruce's sudden passing, I immediately scoured the internet for specific news. I found what we all viewed.

All I can say is that this event is beyond human comprehension.
In the early to mid 1960's, Bruce was an immediate next door neighbor. Dozens of times, we played tackle football in my yard with him, his brother Mark, cousin Jon, the Smith brothers, and many others.

Bruce provided countless pleasant childhood memories, from football, to baseball, to.......flinging apples! His devilish laugh will never be forgotten.

I drive through the neighborhood almost once a week now on the way to my office. From now on, I'll drive a bit slower down Ridge Blvd, reflecting on a fun childhood that included Bruce over 50 years ago.

May Bruce rest in Peace forever.
