2 Condolences to Charles Ernest Bruce

  1. Cynthia A H-Stewart says:

    Charlie was a fine man whose values were beyond reproach. He was kind and courteous to everyone he ever met. I had the privilege to serve with him in one of the fraternal organizations of which he was a member and it was a fun time. He was an excellent ritualist in these groups and was admired and respected by all; he will be missed by those of us who have many wonderful memories of his sense of humor and laughter. My sympathies are offered to his extended family in their sorrow.

  2. Marty Hilt says:

    My sincere condolence’s to Martie and all of Charlies family. Having met Charlie
    just five short years ago his fellowship was a gift that I will not soon forget along
    with all of his wonderful stories.
