Messages of Condolence

  1. Still seems unreal to me.He loved me as if I was his own sister/child, He meant the world too so many and will be missed beyond words.
    We love you!

  2. Debbie and Family,
    I was so sad to hear of the recent news. Bruce was VERY special to our Dental Family. He was one of the nicest people I know. I looked forward to every visit with us. We will miss him dearly at our office. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
    May God bless you during this time of sorrow.
    With deepest sympathy,
    Dr Jeff Castel

  3. When I started working at the phone company Bruce had already been there for many years. What I remember best about him is the patience and understanding he had for those of us who were new to the job. He would never get upset with us when we made mistakes and believe me I made many in the beginning but instead he would quietly tell us what we did wrong and show us the right way. Bruce you were one of a kind and you will be missed.

  4. I just heard the news of Bruce’s passing. We worked together for many years and he was a very dedicated and hard worker. We will have a toast to him at our next golfer’s get together. My deepest condolences to his family.
