Bruce was an avid Oklahoma Sooners fan, even during the bad years. On any given Saturday from September to December, you could hear Bruce yelling, on the edge of his chair, fist clutched, rooting for ”his” Sooners!!! Bruce had another great love in his life, his 8 grandchildren. His face would light up whenever any one of them would walk through the front door. He loved getting to hear about all the things they were doing and enjoyed every minute he was able to spend with them. Last but not least, Bruce loved his sweetheart, Marsha, Mart as Bruce would call her. Through all the ups and downs of life, they still remained best friends and rarely went to bed without a kiss goodnight and an ”I love you”.
