On behalf of Bruce's old Taft and Lockport High School classmates, I send our love, on the passing of one so dear! Bruce was a great friend and classmate!! We sat at the same lunch table, my Freshman & Sophomore years, and he was a real "cut up"!! I tried hard to get him to come to the reunion, but his poor health was too much for him to overcome. Go with God, my friend!! Your Friends!! xoxoxo
