Bruce was a compassionate soul that loved animals especially his roosters and raccoons that

hungry. He took on his battle of cancer like a champ. He was one of a kind.
His death is a huge loss to the family and community. His presence is already
missed. Everyone that knows Bruce has a story, thank you for sharing those.
