My condolences to Bruce's family. Bruce was a good friend of mine in High School. Had lots of adventures together. He was a great story teller, had a quick wit and a innocent devilish smile. I'm glad he was a part of my history.

My deepest condolences to Bruce's family and friends. I grew up with Bruce and played little league baseball together. My fondest memories are hanging out in front of Mike's drug store with the neighborhood kids, and playing baseball in Franklin schoolyard.
