Default Bruce Lancaster

I just spoke with Bruce's pastor and he confirmed that Bruce died last night. There will be a memorial service but the arrangements have not yet been made. It's a crappy rainy day here in New Jersey.

Far too often, the GOOD ones leave us much too soon. You'll be missed, Bruce! DD

That sucks - Bruce was such a cool/great dude. But - if he would have had a poor quality of life (like a lot of stroke survivors do), he would probably wish a graceful exit over being a 3 legged spider . . .

Godspeed Bruce - by gosh we'll all miss you!

My prayers to his family. Let's hope Bruce is driving around in a '32 Roadster with an Ardun powered flatty in heaven.

Bruce was a fountain of knowledge and a real class act. I’m saddened by his passing even though we never met. RIP Bruce.

Well, Pete, this makes it a lousy day in southern Georgia, too. I wish I had the address of his family so I could send a card and note. Some guys will never, ever, be replaced. Bruce was in that category.

Bright, sunny, warm, and sad in south Georgia,

With all the fires in California this just makes things so much worse. RIP Bruce.

Zach Suhr has a wonderful eulogy posted on the HAMB. Bruce was everything good to anyone who came across him.

Bruce has always been a man of few words but you could take every single one of them to the bank, he never once got involved in any petty arguments but was always a wealth of knowledge and the information he shared was without any strings.

The sun will never again shine on the hamb er the Ford Barn quiet as bright as it did yesterday but Bruce has left his wisdom throughout the hundreds of post and will always be a member I have in high esteem.

So long Bruce, until we meet again, and to Beth and the entire family, please know you are in our hearts a prayers, your dad was a good man. HRP
