Bruce was a mentor to me while at FICO. Had a heart of gold and supported you through thick and thin. I missed you when I left FICO. This place has a hole in it where you belong.

Lisa, Please know we are thinking of you. We learned of Bruces death while attending an FC Tucson soccer game where he was honored. We were saddened by the news and hope you are holding up o.k. We have such good memories of you and hold you in our hearts.

One of the nicest guys I've ever known. It still makes me cry when I think of the loss. Wish I had known him longer, but the time he was here will not be forgotten.

I was lucky enough to play poker with Bruce for many years. His love of his family, pets and sports was contagious. Bruce was a lot of fun and I will always remember how his eyes lit up and his joy when Robbie arrived home during Christmas break during a poker game. I often think of a FB post Bruce did recently and I will paraphrase "cherish every moment, love your family, God is good". RIP my friend!

He made me feel like a friend even though we had just met.

I feel very fortunate that my path crossed Bruce's over the past few years. He was certainly likeable, bright, and fun to be around. Even in social situations his leadership always came through. It's a big loss for all who knew him. But we'll all have great memories. My condolences to his entire family.
