  2. Those were the days my friend, we thought they’d never end.
    It was love at first sight and sound 41 years ago … baseball & music for starters..
    Grew to love him like a brother, trust him like a best friend, respect him as a businessman, learn lessons of caring and sharing from a great man.
    My family fell for him too … Myra and my boys, Dan, Alec & Pete.
    Cherish so many wonderful times together. Never laughed so hard, sang and played so loud.
    We will warm our hearts with his favourite songs whenever we can.
    Bruce’s family is simply part of our extended family now & forever … the memories will bind us and carry us through..
    Miss him like crazy … until we meet again…. and wherever that may be, there will be a standing ovation.

  3. This was a real shock to hear about the passing of Bruce. As you know Lorraine, Bruce and I go a long way back and Jonathan even spent a year here on the course. We had not talked or been in touch for a few years but the friendship was still there. I had always hoped to spend some Autumn time with Bruce. Our son Matt and I did the Father/Son fishing trips and Bruce and I travelled together for years. My heart goes out to you and your family; Bruce will always be in my heart and thoughts; he was a true lover of life. I do have some pictures that I could share of those times and if any of you get west be sure and stop in to see us. Ken and Louise Olan.
