I just tried to call Bruce and learned of his passing. Bruce and I had been in close contact by phone for the past twenty years and my wife Judith and I always visited Bruce every time we returned to Ohio. In many ways I grew up in the Cronk house and have deep feelings for his late mother and consider his brother, sister, daughters, grandchildren, and nephews and nieces members of my family to whom I express my deepest sympathy. Bruce was my dearest friend and we shared our childhood daily as classmates, on the playing field, and in all of life's adventuress. Bruce was a tremendous athlete and we were team mates on our high school wrestling team on which Bruce won the District wrestling championship and Bruce was an outstanding member of the football and track teams. Bruce moved to California with his young family in his mid twenties but neither time nor distance separated our friendship. Bruce was a kind thoughtful person with deep affection for people who overcame personal obstacles and spent the last twenty years of his life committed to applying his insights and skills in personal relations to assist others to overcome challenges in their lives. Bruce has always been and will forever be a part of me and I will cherish his memory and what he taught me about friendship, meeting life's challenges, and assisting others. My wife Judith met Bruce twenty years ago and developed a deep affection and respect for Bruce. We are saddened and grieve his passing and will always cherish his warmth and friendship.
