I work at Orchard Cove and worked with Bruce for many years. I was always struck by Bruce’s consistent willingness to help at any time. He was so friendly and had a great sense of humor. I enjoyed seeing and chatting with him as he worked throughout the Orchard Cove Building. I will miss his friendly face and smile.
Dear Linda I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Bruce. May the support of your family and friends give you the strength to get through the following days and months ahead, God Bless You
We are only 60 steps away from your door to ours. A chat, a glass of wine, or just a visit going over memories, the door is always open neighbor. Larry and Carole
Love you dearly and forever
Cousin, my memories of you from weddings, funerals, dinners at your Mom’s house, seeing you at Grandma Noyes’, are of fun and a love for life. My sorrow for your wife, your brothers and sister, family and friends, May their memories of you ease their grief.
I worked with Bruce for many years at orchard cove and am a Mansfield resident. Bruce was always kind and helpful and very caring. I always enjoyed chatting with him. I will never forget him driving behind me after a work function to make sure I got home safely because I had a cocktail or two. Just a great man who will be missed by many,
We will miss our very dear and beautiful friend, Bruce forever, we were so privileged to have worked with him for many years. It’s hard to think of Orchard Cove without him; when we walk through the hallways we will miss seeing him there rushing around and helping so many. Our hearts are broken. While we think of Bruce, we can’t but think of Linda and keep her in our prayers and thoughts.
Marina and Patricia.
I worked with Bruce at Orchard Cove and he was the best. I just found out about his illness and I am very sorry. I will miss him so much.
Linda, I am truly sorry for the passing of Bruce. I have been thinking of you both and I just found out. Please reach out to me for anything..
