So sorry to hear of Bruce’s passing. My mom was Bud’s cousin, so we knew each other many years ago. I remember lighting candles for Bruce and Barney every night during the war and praying for their safe return. We’re thinking of your family and wish you peace at this difficult time.

Our deepest sympathy to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Bruce's extended family at Celery City Moose, Portage Schoolcraft Eagles, Red Arrow Riders, Eagles Riders and All VFW and American Legion Posts in the area. Bruce accepted every mission to help. From adopt a highway to many raffles and events. Impossible to say no to Bruce! He will be missed on the Moose golf league and Tuesday golf trips with the boys as well. His countless jokes and vast array of T-shirts that seem to capture our imagination. Thank You for your service to our Country and your continued patriotism. He will be missed but not forgotten.

Honored to have met you Bruce. You always, always asked me how Rich was doing if I was at work. Your silent yet dedicated commitment to all the organization is a true testament to the type of man you were. Until we meet again my friend, Eric Stockwell and family, extremely sorry for your loss. Nothing but great things are heard whenever his name is mentioned. Steve and Rich
