I had the privilege to briefly work with Bruce back in 1971 where he served as the Resident Agent at Fitzsimons Army Hospital in Colorado. Years later I ran into him at Fort Belvoir. A true professional and great person. Prayers out to family and friends.

Violet and I remember Bruce very fondly. I met him when I was TDY to Ft Belvoir on a Pentagon case. Bruce was the Operations Officer there. Violet was a word processing clerk and the unit mail clerk. At some point I asked Bruce whether he would object if I dated Violet. He laughed and said something like, "I've already got one clerk getting married, I might as well marry-off the other one." He said that with a big grin. I assured him that marriage was not on the agenda. Boy, was I wrong! We've been married almost 37 years. Violet says Bruce was a "really good boss." No doubt about it! Rest in Peace, Bruce.

Bruce and I were in the same CID Basic Course at Fort Gordon. I haven't visited this site for awhile, and therefore missed his interment. Condolences to the entire family.
