I remember going rollerskating with the family in Milford, we had such a great time. Also he was so involved with the Home committee in Medfield during the Holidays making sure everyone had a turkey dinner. My condolences to Brenda and Amanda.

Bruce spent many years as An EMT for Medfield, A calling he loved . As he loved spending time with friends over the years, cooking for them being one of his favorite things to do. A good meal, followed by a nice summer bonfire in the company of his daughter, and the friends of his sons, young men he deeply loved, was a joy for him. Another joy was the happy times he spent in his beloved Maine . He will be missed by many, he will be carried within our hearts, always. Rest easy Bruce, your watch is done. Amanda, have no doubt hes watching over you, now and always. Love to you and to all his boys, Onyx, Gallegher, Jason G, Conley and more.
