Bruce lost a long battle with dementia and a traumatic brain injury incurred in 2013.
Bruce was born in 1938 in Schenectady, NY. He graduated from Knott Terrace High School and went on to receive his degree from Michigan State University. He was an avid State fan and was often found cheering on their football and basketball teams. Go Green!
He was a proud Army veteran and supported many veteran outreach programs. Before his accident in 2013, he was an active member of the American Legion, Elks, and the Moose Lodge. He loved his friends and family at these organizations.
Bruce was a retiree of Eastman Kodak and was a private investigator for a short period of time.
Bruce was always the life of the party and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed many activities such as golfing, bowling, skiing, fishing with his buddy up in the Thousand Islands, walking daily, traveling, going to the track in Saratoga, and drinking his beer with his buddies!
We would like to thank everyone who helped Bruce in the last several years especially the staff at MCH! You guys rock and we love you!! We would also like to thank his best friend for over 80 years, Mike Devlin, for his love, support, and unwavering friendship through thick and thin!! BAH loved you like a brother!
As Bruce would say, “It’s all part of the process”. This “process” is difficult but may you be hanging out with your old cronies, drinking beer, Ming Sue…our old cat.. curled up in your lap, with Ma yelling at you because you forgot to do something! Peace out!!
A Private Service will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Monroe Community Hospital Foundation, 435 East Henrietta Road, Rochester, NY 14620.
