Bruce’s greatest joys in life were his granddaughters! He loved spending time with all of them.

He had the biggest heart for others and would give you the shirt off his back. We celebrate his love of family, people, hunting and fishing. He has left a void that cannot be filled.

We love and miss you with everything that we are, until we meet again.
