Where to start, there will never be another Bruce ! Meeting Fro back in the seventies when my band from Kansas City had the good fortune of being booked in Moberly. The guy was truly someone who loved music as much as I did. Blessed with the voice of a Rock Star and guitar skills like a pro, Bruce was amazing to share the stage with. There was an instant respect and love for him. Bruce and Tracy would show up in places like Orlando, Montgomery, Mobile and Kansas City just to spend time with our band. I would show up to to admire the skills like no other than Fro playing with his great band. We went to concerts together with his lovely wife Tracy and spent quality time together. Bruce was a fighter like no other and was blessed to have an angel like Tracy in his corner. You will be missed every day but not forgotten. I love you Big Guy and will cherish our memories until we share the ultimate big stage in the sky!!!!! Love you buddy, Dale

Bruce was great friend and classmate. We played in a band together Bruce on guitar me on bass and Jeff Eppley on drums. Bruce and Company band. We practiced a lot. Bruce was a great motivator! We only did one gig up stairs John Gillans restaurant. Bruce sang a medley of the Righteous Brothers songs w/ Rock and Roll Heaven! There are pictures some where. Thanks for believing in me Bruce! God Bless!
