    Best man ever, always was concerned about others and the most giving man. Anytime I just needed someone he was right there the minute I’d step in the room. He will be missed greatly. Prayers to you Kathy , Lisa and Bruce Jr. and all of your family 🤍

    Bruce was one of the kindest souls to have ever cared for. You could ask him for advice, or opinion. You could tell him what noise your vehicle was making and he would tell you what is wrong. I’ll forever cherish the memories. My thoughts and prayers to Kathy and the entire family.
