He also served the Church on High Councils, in Bishoprics, and in many other callings, most recently as a service missionary.

I remember Bruce very well from our days at BY High/Jr. High School. He was several years ahead of me but made an impact on me. He was a great athlete and I looked up to him. Lost track of Bruce after high school/college, but happy to see how successful he was and a good family man. My condolences to the family. RIP Bruce.
