I first met Charlie Bruce in the early 1960s, He was a city life guard, Life Guard station 5. To a lot of us teens he was one we admired as he kept us in line, plus allt the joking and teasing he was famous for. Never forget his smile and the little half laugh/half giggle ge had. When I became a proud FLPD Officer in 1970 (also FLPD reserve 68-69). Got to meet Charlie again. Great to work with, great to learn from, just fun to be around. Never forget the gags and practical jokes he Fred Holowell together pulled on George Bartold. Miss those times! RIP MY BROTHER
