Bruce and I have been friends for 12 years. He was always ready to lend a hand at any time that I needed it. Also he was always a prayer warrior and ready to share the gospel at any time.
He had many friends in Naples and was considered a very good tennis and golf player.
He spoke of his family a lot in the past few years. He loved them all very much.
Heaven will open its arms to a true disciple of Jesus Christ.
He was also Chaplin of the Naples camp and was always ready to share an explanation of the scriptures.

I’m sending my sincere sympathies to Bruce’s family. As a tribute to your father, I would like for you to know what a wonderful impact he had on me and on my son who struggles from mental problems and addictions. Bruce’s life was an incredible example of kindness, goodness, faithfulness and patience. He had many words of wisdom and an incredible love for others. He will be greatly missed, but I know that He is rejoicing with all of heaven as he’s in the presence of Jesus.
