Life service will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 1 p.m. at St.

Detroit, MI and grew up in High Point, NC. He attended the University of
Michigan and graduated from the Citadel in 1949. He is a veteran of World
War II, serving in the US Army Air Corps. In 2010, Bruce was thrilled to
participate in the Flight of Honor to visit the World War II Memorials in
Washington, DC with other WWII Veterans. Later Bruce had a career in sales
and marketing, at one time owning a business in Greensboro. He was a natural
salesman as he loved to meet people and could start a conversation with
anyone. He lived in Greensboro for 47 years and lived in New York and
Wilmington, NC with his family beforehand. Bruce was an avid sports fan,
appreciated outings with his wife, Nancy, and enjoyed learning new things.
He was a life member of the Citadel Alumni Association and Gate City Masonic

establish the group in his own neighborhood. Bruce is survived by his wife
