I was deeply saddened to hear of Bruces passing. He and I developed a great friendship, when we met at the Reno Air Races in the mid-1970s. Our passions were Aircraft photography, and the love of WWII Aircraft. When the Races started, he and I would get to the gate about 4AM, so we could run and get the best bleacher seats! Being younger, I usually got there first, and saved Bruces seat. Later in 1985, we developed a friendship with the local Sunrise Club there, and volunteered for AM Gate duty. We checked car stickers, and wristbands. Lots of perks - coffee, donuts, sandwiches, small gifts. We were off-duty at 10AM, got free parking/entry passes! Then later, we got invites to the control Tower. A book could be written about all the ways some folks tried to snooker us to get in - Bruce was real savvy to this, he knew how to catch someone! We had lots of laughs afterwards! Bruces last year there was 2007, mine 2011. I missed Bruce, as I worked the gate alone. I lost a great Friend also, that cannot be replaced....Thanks my good friend, for all the great memories we shared..Marilyn and Bruces family, may God bless all of you, and you have my deepest condolences.
