    Bruce was a wonderful brother! I so appreciate all the kind words folks are sharing about him all over Edmond! He surely would be amazed! Thankful for all the kind deeds he accomplished in his life of service to Kiwanis, Edmond, and his church SanteFe Presbyterian! His life blessed our family and he will be sorely missed!

    I was so saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Bruce. He was a great man with a kind spirit and a great sense of humor. I enjoyed our time working and traveling together when he was at OMPA. My thoughts and prayers are with Kathy and all who knew and loved Bruce. He will definitely be missed.
