To,
Allyson & Luke

I am deeply saddened for your loss. It is extremely difficult to believe that Bruce is not around anymore. As you know already, I started working with Bruce in 2017 and have worked together ever since. Whether it was talking about projects or our families or even sometimes life in general, we communicated a lot on day to day basis. Not getting that call from Bruce anymore, is a big void. I hope you get the strength to keep moving forward.

Allyson & Luke,

Bruce was a kind, generous soul, and we both adored him. He and Luke were the first people to welcome us to Harris Ridge Court. What I would not give for one last ride? He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten:

"Like the desperados of old
Riding free and bold
From horses to steeds of steel
The wind is what you long to feel
Brothers in arms protecting each from harm
Brothers not in kin, but brothers in the wind"

- Author Unknown

Love always,

Brian & Marcia

To Allyson and Luke,
I'm sadden and so sorry for your lost. The first time I met Bruce, I thought to myself, he was a big guy in statue and I wondered if he would be mean, but he was just the opposite. He reminded me of "Santa Claus" always smiling. He was always kind to me and made me laugh with some of his comments or facial expressions at work. Bruce always believed in my ability to get the job done, and I appreciate him for it. He talked proudly of his family and made it known they were his life.
My prayers are with you all to hold on to your cherished memories for they will never go away.

Bruce was my best friend and we were brothers, we road motorcycles, talked about our construction site’s, family, friends and just hung out together for so many years. He was family to me and I will miss him always.

Allyson & Luke, I am so sorry for your lost, it came to fast & too soon. I personally was not prepared for it. After Bruce & I spent 16 months working every day together building the GT Police Departments new facility, we became friends and spoke with each other just about every week after we moved on to other projects. When Bruce took one of his Harley’s or that fancy red sports car for a ride on Saturday or Sunday’s, sometimes he would come through my neighborhood, if I was outside working in the yard he would stop by and chat. Nine days before his passing, I was outside at my house and could hear this loud rumbling coming down the road, needless to say, it was Bruce, in that fancy red sports car, he stopped by and we chatted for about 45 minutes (this happened for a reason, now I know why).

Bruce will truly be missed, but not forgotten

I interned under Bruce in the summer of 2018 and spring of 2019. Bruce was a role model, teacher, and and a friend. Although I was a college student, Bruce thought me to be hands on, engaging, and to get things done. Bruce has been a blessing in my life and never will be forgotten.

I had the privilege in 2014 to build a 40 unit Apartment project with Bruce in Decatur, Ga. It was a difficult project and Bruce proved himself to be a problem solver and made the project a success. The construction representatives with the Decatur Housing Authority loved Bruce.

Bruce was a spirited, fun loving man who loved his motorcycle, his truck and especially his family. We spoke about our families often and kept in touch over the years. I always had hoped to have the opportunity to work with him again. I will miss hearing from my friend Bruce.
