Bruce was a wonderful man. I often saw him and Peggy when I would visit Tammy. I am sorry for your loss.

As I looked through the photos I remember so many things growing up with the Jordans....Mr Jordan taught me how to dive in their backyard pool. I remember when Tammy ran the car through the garage door and sitting with her while her Mom told her Dad. I'm so sad for your loss and so sorry for your pain. Please know how much he and all of you are loved and how much he is missed.

Bruce was one of the finest Christian men I had the privilege to know. I will miss seeing his smiling face on Sunday morning. He always had a hug for me. Peggy, you and your family are in my prayers. Sincerely, Vickie Talbot

Peggy and family,
I'm so sorry for your loss and praying God's comfort during this incredibly difficult time for you. I began working at EPA in 1992 and Bruce was one of my greatest cheerleaders here; he understood the value of on-the-job training. He knew that if one worked hard enough they could learn what they needed to do to further their career. I'm sure he also valued formal education but he also understood that it wasn't the only education! I'm so thankful for his support, both in my career and in my personal life. Not long after I began working here, my family suffered a medical emergency with my daughter and Bruce always inquired about my family and seemed genuinely concerned about everybody's family here. I was always amazed at how he could remember the situations each person was dealing with and discuss those with each one. It's rare to have the opportunity to experience someone like Bruce, who lived out Christ's love in every part of his life!

I am so sorry Bruce has passed away. I have very fond memories of working with him at EPA in the early 90's. He was always kind and helpful to me when I obviously had so much to learn!

Bruce was a Southern Gentleman in the truest sense. One of the best managers during his many years of service at EPA - he led by example. Bruce was genuinely kind, caring, fair-minded and a man of faith of highest integrity.May God surround Peggy,Tammy, Michael and grandchildren with His love and peace.

Bruce was a great boss and mentor to me. He hired me into my first management job here at EPA. Bruce was always so kind and could find humor even in the most stressful situations. When I would see him from time to time after he retired, he'd always ask how I and the other folks still here at EPA were doing. Peggy and family, I am so sorry for your loss. We will all miss Bruce so very much.
