Memories Timeline


  1. Dad, you were the best father a girl could ask for. Stern when needed, but soft hearted and sympathetic when we needed it. We will miss your sarcastic jokes, your loving nature. You showed us what to look for in a husband. You were an awesome Papa to my kids and an even more awesome Great Papa to the babies. I can only imagine what your entrance to heaven was like. Until we see you again, watch over us and keep us safe. I love you and miss you so much 

  2. Love and heartfelt sympathy for the family and friends. We love you Bruce and will see you again. You are now another one of our guardian angels.

  3. Our love and sympathy goes out to Bruce's family. We had only met him a few times at family gatherings but knew him to be a wonderful man.
    We are praying for your comfort at this difficult time.
    Dean and Pat

  4. My condolences to Bruce's family and friends. He was a wonderful mentor and friend to my daughter. I will always be grateful to him. He had a great sense of humor and outlook on life. You are in my prayers. Robin, you said it well.
