Saying Goodbye to one of GE’s Finest: I knew Bryce while we both worked at General Electric, and found him to be a gentleman always, and a loyal, dedicated coworker. I met Bryce again a couple of years ago when I joined Fitness Plus wellness at Catawba Medical Center, and I shall miss him in our group workouts. While some of the routines presented a challenge, he always endured, his dry sense of humor was unparalleled, and he entertained us all! Bryce Hollar will be missed!
