A wonderful husband, a terrific father, a good friend, an excellent employee, quick witted, funny, loyal and honest, ways Bruce would want to be remembered...Something you maybe did not know about Bruce; he was a Vietnam Veteran, he worked for AT & T for 31 years retiring in 1998 to be "Mr. Mom" to his son Wyatt, a role he would tell you was the greatest and most pleasurable of his short life.


In August of 2009 Bruce was given devastating news, he had stage IV pancreatic cancer that was inoperable, incurable. His greatest concern was for his wife and son who he still had so much to teach. He had surgery to relieve an obstruction, encountered numerous complications including an infection which led to the end of his suffering, at the age of 60, on 12/22/09, less than 4 months from his diagnosis.


Bruce is deeply missed in hundreds of different ways by all those who had the privilege and honor to know and love him. There is no choice but to go on, feel the sunshine on our faces, smile as we think of him and miss him.
