Any time I saw Bruce in the window at TAP I’d stop in, because he always had something interesting, funny, or insightful to share.
Bruce was one of the storytellers at AlvegoRoot’s Story Evening last year; his natural retelling of a personal anecdote was one of my favourite performances of the night. I would have sworn he’d been acting for years, and was very surprised when he told me later that he’d never been on stage.
Jason Clarke has created a Tumblr site for remembrances of Bruce.
Jennifer O’Brien at the London Free Press has written an article about Bruce: Passion for the arts world.
He had given me the most sincere gift I have ever received, I will never forget your thoughtfulness. And all I can say is Thank you. You wil be extremely missed.
