Bruce was a man that was full of life. He was positive, fun-loving, and kind. Above all, he loved the Lord. He was the one who brought joy and laughter into any room and loved the fellowship of his family, friends, and his community. His love for Christ was evidenced by his actions in helping and serving others.
