My condolences to his family and his pets Kobi and Kiki. One of the most compassionate, caring individuals I have known. Bruce was very instrumental in helping me adopt my two labs, along with Joni's help. He would often stop in on his way to work to have a cup of coffee and pick up material or just say hey...! We'd talk about our dogs, our weekends and plumbing of course! Bruce, I miss your hugs and sarcastic comments so much! He will truly be missed by many including myself.
Rest In Peace my friend....Steph
