Bruce had a heart of gold and was always willing to help everyone either through his words of wisdom or other acts of kindness. Bruce was a family man and family was his number one priority. He cherished every minute with his family and his friends and cared deeply for everyone in his life. He was an amazing storyteller and you never left Bruce’s presence without learning something knew either about him or the world around us. He is deeply loved and will be missed by everyone he had in his life, both family and friends. Even though with Bruce everyone was his family.
