    Bruce was a good friend. We spent a lot of time playing music in my mom&dads basement, with our 70’s rock band. My mom would always cook for us, Bruce would always eat 2 cheeseburgers

    Please remember that Bruce had two other nieces that loved him very much – Allison Hood Mitchell and Elizabeth Hood Cullum. He also had four great nephews – Carter, Greyson, and Maverick Mitchell, and Griffin Cullum. He will surely be missed!
