I first met Bruce Hill when I worked with him at Palmetto State Park in 1970, blazing the San Marcos River Trail. I ran with him to prepare for National Guard summer camp and remember his wife Gwen and his German shepherd dog Sarge. I crossed paths later when he became a Game Warden in Panola County. We shared some memories. I was there at his funeral and was overcome with the outpouring support from the Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept.
