    I worked with Bruce at Beaumont Family Practice. He was truly one of my favorite providers. I was actually talking with my grandmother yesterday about a jar of pickles he had given me years ago. He was a special person. One of a kind. My condolences to his family and friends.

    My first introduction to Bruce was when he began operating the Crystal Beach Medical Clinic at the old CBVFD building. He and I became close friends, assisting each other with mutal patients and enjoying a round of golf on a weekly basis. R.I.P. my dear friend….no doubt you will be missed by an infinite number of folks.
