Bruce was a great guy… fair, honest, funny, pragmatic, and hard-working. I liked Bruce a lot. Too bad there are not a lot more guys like Bruce in this world. He’ll be missed.
Bruce was not only a good customer, but a very good friend. He was always upbeat no matter what was going on in his life at the time. I am grateful to have known him and share a part of his life. My condolences go out to Ashton, Todd, and Jimmy. May he and Sharon rest in peace together again.
Bruce and Sharon’s house was always like a second home to so many kids over the years. My boys were at their house so much it was like a second home for them. Over the years Todd and Ashton were at our home frequently. I remember so many good times and laughter over the years. Now they are married with families of their own but the friendships continue. I am so sorry for the loss of both Sharon and now Bruce. Please take comfort in knowing that they are together again in the kingdom of heaven. “Death ends a life; Not a relationship.” Dr. Seuess. Hugs to all.
Having dealt with Bruce on a professional level for over 20 years I have nothing but high regards fir him. His work was outstanding, his demeanor was first class and he treated everyone with respect . He will be missed both as a electrical contractor and as a human being.
Bruce was often like an older brother in the early days. When he was a teenager he took me for motor scooter rides, helping me buy my first car (savvy skills) and we took his ‘39 Olds. (Bruce’s Bus) to the 131 dragway. His gentle guidance and open listening helped smooth adolescence. He was the source for our engagement ring diamond. The family legacy he built will endure. Ashten, Todd and Jim our hearts are with you during this transition. We celebrate the meaningful life he led. You do (and will) carry his spirit, humor and family traditions forward. May his memory be a blessing.
Sorry to hear of Bruce’s passing I first met him when I worked at Wheel Camper in Centreville back in 70’s , then as years went on I seen him more when he come into Home Depot always had kind word and alot of memories we shared. RIP Bruce.
So sorry for your loss.
I loved shopping at his jewelry store back in the day. My now deceased husband, Tom Miller and Bruce always has the really COOL cars probably back in the 60s, when everyone was young and cool! The guys were car buddies, or gear heads I guess! You can be sure your mom and dad are reunited, I hope you have some comfort knowing that as you grieve. God be with you all.
