July 3, 2020

Bruce, Holly and their parents Ed and Ruth lived in a house on Deering lake in NH during the summers for my entire childhood and until I was 18 , along with Bill and Ray Petty, my brother and sister Dan and Judy, and several other kids near our ages. including all my cousins in the Beaven and Abernethy families I have so many wonderful memories of Bruce from those summers- water skiing all day, fishing, swimming and playing king of the raft, camping, 4th of July fireworks over the lake, darts at the Meltons house, and many more. I am so sad to hear of his passing and send my deepest condolences to his family - I will miss him greatly.

I grew up with Bruce. Our families had cottages next to each other on Deering Reservoir in Deering N.H. Where we would spend a good part of every summer. I have many fond memories of Bruce from our childhood days. We kept in intermittent contact over the years and I saw him last three years ago. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He will be missed.
