I first met Bruce 30 years ago. Through the years I have enjoyed watching him rise above his trials and shine. He was an honorary uncle to my daughter, Jori, and never failed to put his beer down with the rest of the "uncles" at the bar to parade past her car window whenever we made it in from Idaho. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing, but know that with his friends Dwight "Dewy" and Allen there to show him the ropes, there's going to be a little hell being raised behind those pearly gates. "Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Mathew 5:4

Bruce was my cousin, but grew up with him from 16 months to 8 years old. Will miss him dearly and so glad could be with him throughout this passing. Thank each one of his friends for all that you had together.
Bruce you are now with the best of them-Mom and your friends.

My condolences to Bruce's family and close friends; I am sorry I never got meet you. When I thought about the years past, realized I had known Bruce for over 40 years. Although I hadn't seen him much in the past decade or so, always considered him a "good buddy". Hard to think of him not holding down that stool at the Packard anymore. I always liked his easy laugh and that sparkle in his eyes that held abit of the mischief ! Will certainly miss his friendship - Rest in peace dear friend.
