I only started getting to know Bruce over the past few months or so - he had been coming over to the IA department for cross training/job shadowing as I believe he was interested in transferring. I had just transferred to the department myself and one Thursday Bruce came over and we all just had a great time - a really really great time! We laughed, told stories, it was like we all had worked together for years...I am sad for the future moments lost for myself, but my heart goes out to the family and close friends who will no doubt miss Bruce the most...

I am so sorry to hear about Bruce's passing. I was his former HR person and I always enjoyed talking to him, and helping him when he needed help. I enjoyed his kind demeanor and positive attitude. He loved all music. I can hear all the music he used to play when he was in large formulation. Rest in Peace, Bruce.
