“I have many fond memories with Bruce ( the name doesn't seem right) but the one I remember most is after a fire at the elevator when he and I fly to Indiana to drive a new truck back to replace his truck that had perished in the fire. Bruce had never flown before and I thought he might destroy the arm rest before we got in the air!! I will also miss all the calls I received from him over the years after retiring. He will be missed by many !!!! Rest in peace, great friend .
