Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Bruce was known as a colorful local character of Winter Park for the last 40 years. His quick-witted one-liners are his legacy to those who crossed paths with him.

He survived many lives as a cat would. He left us peacefully in his sleep free of dependence and pain. He loved the mountains and would never leave Grand County; even Denver was too far …

Unfortunately, that’s also as far as it went with Mary Ellen Shea. She started hanging on the football quarterback and my interest in stupid typing waned as quickly as my interest in stupid Mary Ellen. So that’s how I learned how to type, sort-of.
