Bruce was born on September 29th, 1950 in Boston, MA. He enlisted in the Marines on October 30th, 1967. He was honorably discharged on December 19th, 1969 and moved to Lowell, MA. He met his wife on the dance floor the same year and married on November 21, 1970. They proceeded to have four beautiful children and created many family traditions over the years.
Bruce was a 6ft, broad shouldered man with hands like his father. He was a devoted family man, son, and friend. He was an active member of his community and loved the outdoors of his country. He believed in self education, Faith, and had many hobbies and skills. Bruce was an adventurer and enjoyed taking road trips to many places (by map!). He loved challenges and problem solving; he was full of perseverance. He adored films and books and shared his ideas and inventions with loved ones. Bruce was a creative chef but especially enjoyed his favorite Expressos Pizza and Santoro’s subs! Bruce was a spiritual man who was filled with love and life. He was a friend and a neighbor and often put other’s needs in front of his own.
Bruce will be remembered by all as a protector and guider. His family will carry on his knowledge and many traditions onto future generations. He left us all with memories of his profound words. He will be missed immensely by everyone who knew him.
In the spirit of Bruce, we will be having a celebration of life in the Spring/Early Summer of 2021 in New Hampshire at one of his favorite lake side State Parks. We will be announcing a date soon on this website.
Growing up, Bruce spent a lot of time at his local Boys and Girls Club. In honor of the man he was, the family has set up a donation fund in his name to the Concord, NH Boys and Girls Club. This organization gives to the community in more ways than one.
Please stay tuned for the upcoming celebration date!

I was looking for pictures of Bruce when I found this story our mother had written for her writing class. It was right at the top of a pile of papers, and I had a feeling it was something she had wanted to share with us all about a day with her son.
A Sudden Trip
By Mary Rose
It was a beautiful Sunday morning. My son, Bruce, called and said, “Mom, it is going to be 70 degrees today. Let’s go to the beach. “
Quick as a wink my church clothes came off and my beach clothes flew on.
I packed some cookies and some soda and grabbed my hat and a book. I was ready.
Bruce had a new van so I was riding high and admiring the signs of spring. This ribbon highway was carrying us to the beach, our favorite place in the world, and I was enjoying the trip.
We were practically the first ones there, so we had not trouble finding a parking spot. Bruce pulled out some beach chairs, water and my book. He carried them as close to the water as we could get.
The waves were high and shining. The sky was blue and sunny. It was filled with flying seagulls and colorful kites.
Ah, what a delight!
But after a while, Bruce mentioned that I was looking uncomfortable. “Is this weather too cold for you?” he asked.
“It’s a little chilly,” I replied.
One quick trip to the car by Bruce and I was wrapped in a towel and eating my soda and cookies.
Time passed and I read my book, oblivious to the time and the place.
Before I knew it, Bruce was tapping me on the shoulder.
“Wake up, mom. It’s time to go home.”
Back to the car. Back to reality. But, at least, I will always have the memory of the beautiful day I spent with my son.

a sweet cousin who always had a special hello whether at the park or grocery store from across the parking lot. He loved being family and always left you with a kind word and a memory of the past.
