Always smiling & laughing since I first knew Bruce. My dad always told stories of a very young Bruce that would hunt with him & was able to eat his weight in food at the dinner table at hunting camp! Eat em up Bruce and laugh that a young guy could eat so much. My dad loved to cook so he enjoyed Bruce immensely! He touched a lot of lives in his shirt 77 years for sure. Hugs Uncle Bruce

Bruce is such an important guy in my life. I never viewed him as "my customer". ..we were friends. We just had fun together. We played golf, drank a few beers, and laughed every time we were together. I meant to stop by to see you month ago. I regret I didn't do that. I will always think of you. Rest in peace, my friend.

I met Bruce at Multi-Lakes. Even though I didn't know Bruce long, I will remember him as a sweet, kind, gentleman,
with a big smile on his face. RIP Bruce.

What I will always remember about being along side Bruce as Co-Manager in Novi a few years back was that Bruce had the most perfect hand writing but he could never read my chicken scratch as he called it and had no problem letting me know that either. His knack for perfection when it came to paperwork taught me to always keep a paper trail of orders. Let me tell you that theory came in handy more than a few times. Thanks Bruce.

You will be missed.

Bruce is definitely one of a kind he kept us laughing all the time and thinking at the same time about what he said he will be missed.
