Bruce was a fan of Penn State, Orioles and enjoyed watching NASCAR. He loved his family and spending time with them. He enjoyed camping and loved animals. He had a great sense of humor and was always smiling. But his greatest joy was eating ice-cream. God saw him getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around him and whispered, "Come to me." A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest, He broke our hearts to prove to us, HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST. Until we meet again, in our hearts forever.
