Bruce graduated from Bryant College, in Smithfield, RI, with a BS and MBA in Marketing and Management.

After a 25-year career in the New England Sales and Marking Division of AT&T, Bruce began his real estate career in 1989 and moved to Cape Cod from Plainville, MA.

Bruce was an awarded exclusive membership in the Raveis Real Estate Chairman’s Club for outstanding achievement in 2014 and the President’s Club in 2015 and 2016.

As an associate at William Raveis Real Estate I have known Bruce since he joined the office in Yarmouthport. I am sure you have heard it before and know it in your heart that Bruce was always professional, hard working and looking out for the best interests of his clients. Even in this modern time of constant new technologies and procedures Bruce was at the top of his game. Every day he looked to improve. Bruce was also very sharing with his knowledge. He always had a smile on his face and a warm greeting when you walked into the office. His presence will be sadly missed.
Condolences to Bruce's family and the void his loss will leave. I am sure these great qualities and more will be absent but not forgotten. His kindness will forever be cherished.

Sue, Debbie, Bruce and Craig,

There are no words to tell you how sorry we are for you, Paul, Christine, Kathy and the grandchildren. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. He loved you all so very much and was always so proud of you when telling us about all of your accomplishments. Fifty three years ago we became friends with this special man, but through the years he became so much more. He became our brother, and Sue and Bruce you became family. We have had so many wonderful times together, beginning with the many fun vacations with our children. Later in life, the fantastic trips and adventures the four of us shared have given us such lasting memories. We have been on cruises, cross country skiing, kayaking, traveled our beautiful country and just enjoyed spending time together. During all these times, we could always count on Bruce to provide us with so much joy and laughter. His smile would light up any room. Our journeys together have been incredible. But now Bruce, you are on your journey home without us. But we know we will be reunited again someday. We are so very sad to say goodbye, and will miss you tremendously.
We love you so much. You will remain in our hearts and minds forever.

Rest In Peace our beloved brother and best friend.
Peggy and Howie

I could write pages about what Bruce meant to me over the past (nearly) 40 years but I will keep it simple. He was one of the finest men I ever met - generous, kind, and positive. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and role model to everyone about how to live a great life. He made me part of the family, he was my "second Dad" and I loved him dearly. Kathy and I are completely heartbroken and devastated, but are glad his suffering is over and he is at peace. He will never be forgotten.

I was just devastated to receive the news of Bruce's passing away. I knew that he had been courageously suffering.. I regret that I had not been in a position to arrange a trip to the Cape to visit them and let them know how much they were in my thoughts and prayers.

Bruce was a true friend, with whom I had the great pleasure and privilege of working with as a business partner for several years. He was a dedicated professional who always went the extra mile to accommodate his clients and their needs. Sue and Bruce were enormously helpful to me as I prepared to leave the Cape for my new chapter in life, and I thank them every day for all that they did on my behalf to make that move as smooth as possible.

Bruce loved his family! He will be missed by so many, Rest in Peace my good friend. God's love and blessings.

Dear Auntie Sue, Debbie, Bruce and Craig,

Add a memory....where do I begin? I have so many amazing, heartwarming and funny memories that we have had together over the years. Uncle Bruce was at the center of them all-our trips to the cape where we would all meet at IHOP-we always knew you had arrived when we heard the happy tooter! The cookouts at both of our pools, tying up the boats together on Narragansett Bay, and one of my very favorites-our very first time experiencing Disney-together 💗 The energy he brought and the love he gave will never be forgotten. My life has been forever enriched by knowing him. Love and prayers to all of you and your families, in time I hope the joy of remembering will help ease your pain and bring you peace.

Love you all-

I’ve just learned of Bruce’s passing and am flooded with wonderful memories of the years we worked together. Bruce, always kind, helpful, thoughtful, smart, an exceptional agent and friend. Our paths went in different directions after our time at Compass RE, but Bruce has always, and will always remain a very special and treasured person in my life. Rest In Peace Bruce.
