Bruce was a friend and a fellow football player at Morgan Park. I often think about Bruce and the interesting life that Bruce pursed.
I remember the night that Bruce took Ron Strom and myself to Eric the Red's to show us his stain glass art and his custom made wood tables before the place openned to the public.
Bruce was a fellow fraternity brother at Morgan Park h.s. He seemed enthusiastic about life and challenges. I sent most of my Grocerland stockboy wages to N.ILL.U. to buy his Mustang mini-bike. Very Hip!!!
