    Dear Ruth and family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I really liked Bruce. He was always friendly to me. He and Dick gave me a good tip at one of the dinners, to put salt on my napkin so my drink wouldn’t stick to it!! In case you don’t remember me I used to live in LSV and moved away in 2006. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love, Barb

    We remember the fun times we had with you and Bruce, he was a gracious host to us the times we stayed at your house when we came to FL. In his memory, we’ll have to go a pub and have a Bud and make a toast to Bruce in heaven when we come down in Feb.

    Bruce was always smiling and had a biscuit for all of the puppies in our niegborhood. He will be missed by 2 and 4 legged critters. I enjoyed haveing him at the conferences that we had. He taught us that no matter what is thrown at us we can always find a way to handle it. Yes, we will miss those little puffs of smoke coming from the bushes, but we know that he is in heaven with all the glory now.

  • Tracy Lee Hooper says:

    I will always cherish my memories of Uncle Bruce when we visited before he moved closer: singing silly songs around a campfire, riding on his tractor and shooting a rifle for the first time! When I was a child, he made me realize that adults really could be fun! Rest in peace Uncle Bruce, you touched many lives while here on earth and your memory lives on.

  • Betty-Anne Lee & Ron Janowski says:

    Dear Aunt Ruth and family,
    Uncle Bruce will always be remembered with love and laughter. No one could tell a joke or enjoy one better than Uncle Bruce. I still see him sitting in his rocker with one foot tucked under him, just smiling, singing, laughing, loving life and rocking up a storm. We are all blessed for having stored up so many happy memories.

  • Wendy Neill says:

    My most sincere condolences to my Aunt Ruth and Bruce son. I have many fond memories of Uncle Bruce that I will cherish: the games of Charade we all played at Daytona Beach, his wild and crazy antics e.g. the bungy jumpinggood-times on vacation I learned to water ski with Bruce and Ruth, my first introduction to a Palmetto Bug I won’t elaborate on that, and many more. Love always.

  • Clayton Paige says:

    My fondest memories of Bruce, were as a teenager going to Rowdies games. Bruce always had at least 6 jokes to tell me, he was a real hoot.It always reminds me of a pic with Bruce, Nicky, and Crazy George. No more pain, rest in peace, Clayton.
