Jennifer, so sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. Bruce was a good man and great coworker. We went on a business trip to Germany in 1995. We had lots of fun on that trip especially on the return in Zurich and Bruce was driving. We noticed a trolley bearing down on us from behind. It got Bruce a bit shaken as traffic was blocking his escape. The rest of that evening was good as we got to tour around some. He will be greatly missed.

Jennifer - My sincere condolences for your loss. Bruce was an exceptional person, good man and I only have good memories from the years we worked together. I’ll never forget the day he came into my office with this report printed out on an old 3211 that described something called the internet - he said it was going to change everything - he was right !
