Eva, It has been too many years. I am so sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. I remember him fondly when you two first got together and would talk on the pay phone at school. I remember the day you two were married, it was a beautiful celebration. I've missed you and just wanted to let you know I am thinking about you during this time and always. Peace and Blessings to you my friend, love, Kim

My condolences on the passing of Bruce. I worked with Bruce at Philips (Ferroxcube) is the early 80's. I was also a friend during the years he lived in Saugerties.

It was my honor and privledge to work with Bruce the past 7 years at Emagin. He was a "stand-up" guy, friendly, gentlemanly and always willing to give a hand. My sympathies to his wife Eva and the family at this sorrowful time. I will always remember Bruce's postive outlook...In closing, as Bruce would say to me the end of the workday-"See you 'tomato'!"-Sharon

My sincere condolences to everyone that loved Bruce. I worked at eMagin with Bruce and always found him to have any time to help a fellow worker out. He was a great asset to this company as well as being a friend to all.
