In his early years as a child and young adult, Bruce was an avid baseball player and predominately held the position of a left-handed pitcher. He had many hobbies throughout his life, from learning to fly small planes to riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles and becoming a grill-master. He was a jack of all trades with the ability to fix anything and find a solution. He was a loving son, husband, dad, and grandpa. Always quick with a joke, he was a warm and big-hearted man who enjoyed making others laugh. His love for his family and friends were insurmountable.
