I was saddened when I heard of Bruce’s passing. Kathy and I remember fondly when he was our company photographer for all of the Christmas parties. I worked with Bruce for 21 years and enjoyed every time we worked on something together. His knowledge of the industry we work in was incredible. He’ll be missed and will never be forgotten. Our sincere condolences for you and your families loss.
