Bruce was a wonderful gentleman to work with. I remember preparing for the open house at the new hatchery in Grand Island when a door closed on Bruce foot and gauged his foot badly. He didn’t curse, he don’t get mad, in fact he pretended it didn’t hurt until blood started coming through his shoe. Bruce had to be directed to go to the doctor because he did. It want to leave the work to everyone else. What a great servant leadership example! These were the norm for Bruce.

Bruce was my client for the past couple of years. I was honored to work with him and Debbie. I am saddened by his death and will miss our conversations. My prayers go out to Debbie and all his family.
Very Respectfully,

My condolences to the family. Bruce was a good friend when we worked together at Cal-Maine. This saddens me that he suffered with this treacherous disease. Prayers to all.

Bruce was my Papa. The only one I've ever really known and the best. He was responsible for spoiling me and always treating me with respect- a true role model as to how I should be treated. I will miss him always.
