    Bruce, life won’t be the same without you there. I am truly blessed to have had your friendship, have shared many laughs with you. Bocce just won’t be as fun without you there telling me how to play either. Man our time was short but I gotta say it definitely was a roar of laughter. You were and will forever be my friend. Till we catch up, just keep the spoons clean, and the Left, Right, Center warmed up. I’ll see you again. Rest easy brother, we got it from here.

    I am sorry to learn of Bruces’ passing-i will always cherish the fact that Bruce invited us to stay at Arcadia for a night to check it out, and we never left, allowing us to know him for 17 years…Brenda and Family, you are in my thoughts and prayers-may Gods grace see you through this difficult time- Nancy


    Georgia and Ed

    We are so sorry for your loss. Ed and I thought a lot of Bruce and Brenda. Bruce was such a hugh part of Arcadia and will be certainly missed. Our prayers are with you all.


    The Lomanno's

    I have to say, the Lomanno’s were one of the lucky ones to have been neighbors with Bruce for the last 11 summers. Although it will be difficult to arrive at Arcadia without Bruce screaming out his porch at us to come over when you unpack, we have comfort knowing our families spent quality time together for several years. We got to know a side of Bruce not many have, A BIG SOFT TEDDY BEAR..

    Bruce, Thanks for the memories.

    Dave, Brenda, Chris, Brittany and your new four legged fury pork chop, “COOPER”


    E.M. Hubler

    I am very sorry for the loss of your dear husband and father. Please find comfort in learning from the Bible, that your dear one will return someday soon, to a promised paradise earth, healthy and young again. God has always held out this wonderful hope for a better future. You can read this in your Bible at John 5:28,29 and Psalms 37:11,29.


    William and Diane Searle

    Diane and I feel the loving sorrow that Bruce’s family is going through. We extend our best wishes to all his family. We liked Bruce tremendously. He suffered physical burdens that must have tested his very essence. Yet, he still remained Bruce. We haven’t seen Bruce in years, but, we were always asking as to his health and well being. Our heartfelt condolences go out to everyone. To Muriel, Brenda, Brett, Brendan and his many family members. We were honored to know Bruce. We mostly knew him in his younger, stronger years. We knew the fine human being he was and represented to his family and those around him. May God exercise the wisdom to give Bruce a special place in His home.
