    We loved to hear him pray as a deacon during communion at Victoria Christian Church. He now stands with Almighty God. Rest peacefully Bruce. Our love to the family.

    Over 50 years of friendship beginning in the Admin Office at then Camp Pickett created fond memories of this uniquely intelligent, sentimental and wildly unpredictable man. My heart is beyond sad, but happy you have finally found peace in the arms of our Lord Jesus. I miss you already, Bruce🙏🏻🤗🥰😭

    I remember Bruce always came by my grandparents house at Christmas time every year, and he was always happy and smiling. May he Rest In Peace.

    So long Bruce until we meet in heaven. I pray your rest is peaceful and that you are truly happy being with your loved ones because I know you missed them all so badly! I have missed our talks and your wit and wisdom but am happy your pains and sadness are now over. God Bless family and friends.
