A fantastic spirit - a larger than life man - a mentor.
I met Bruce over 50 years ago as a 6 year old boy in the late 1960’s.
My sister Karin and I became neighbors and friends of Bruce when my parents Marion and Jim purchased on Roblin Lake.
Bruce was the best neighbor one could ever imagine - so fun, so giving, so loving and so selfless.
I followed Bruce around like a puppy. He taught me how to drive a boat, he took me fishing, he taught me how to water ski, he taught me how to renovate and maintain a property. He took me to baseball games and then to Dairy Queen for cones bigger than my head. He let me use his CB radio endlessly under his calling letters “Cuddles”. I puked in his postman shoes and all he did was laugh and ask if I was ok! :)
Bruce was one of only a small handful of mentors in my life. He shaped my life.
My life moved on into my family and my career. I slowly lost touch with Bruce. I will always regret this and the time that I missed from this wonderful man.
My advice to my staff, family and friends is to keep in touch with the people you love.

I love you Bruce.

I am sorry that I didn’t keep in touch.
You are a wonderful man.
I will always remember and miss you.

Marj - I miss you too - and am so sorry for your loss.
