Bruce, you were a great guy and an inspiration to all of us. You touched so many lives in Jupiter and the Northern Palm Beach County area. You were, in so many ways, just what a cop should be; tough, compassionate, caring and brave to name a few.

Know that losing you touched all of us very profoundly and even those of us in surrounding agencies will cherish your memory and friendship for the rest of our lives.

Bruce, you were such a great guy and an inspiration to us all. Your positive attitude, your smile, your friendly ways and your dedication to the community was just remarkable. Your funeral procession was about 14 miles long. They even shipped in motors from California Highway Patrol for you. You were the ultimate motorman.

When you knew someone for a long time you tend to forget what they did years ago. I had forgotten about the volunteer work you did building houses for the poor through Habitat for Humanity.

I know all the town kids you played Santa for on your motor every year are going to miss you.

Your death hit us all like a ton of bricks. It is a phone call I will never forget.

Rest assured that you will be missed. You will never be forgotten. Your legacy in Jupiter is huge and will live on for ages.

R.I.P. We have the watch from here.

It sounds like thunder far away, but the skies are blue and bright...
And soon they crest the hill nearby, and ride into our sight.
They shake the ground with powerful sound, and they make some hearts beat fast...
They look so proud and noble, like Knights come from the past.

Side by side, they always ride, and seem to move as one...
From early in the morning light, to the setting of the sun.
And children point and wave to them, from cars that pass them by...
And young ones ask their parents, why the men have mirrors for eyes.

They ride the roads, and fight for good, and defend small ones like you...
They ask to ride, and do with pride, and sometimes they are few.
Like men of steel, on Silver Wings, they sparkle in the light...
then with a roar and rumble, they ride out of our sight.

Sometimes when one has fallen, never to ride again...
You can hear the others calling, like thunder on the wind.
Side by side, they slowly ride, and their thunder is a mournful sound...
And the mirrors hide their eyes from us, when teardrops fall to ground.

So if you see one riding, and you look into his face...
You see your reflection in his eyes, you know that you are safe.
For motormen are a special breed, they love to ride the wind...
And when you hear the thunder boom, the fallen ones ride again.

Rest in Peace, Motorman…

Bruce and family, thanks for allowing us all the opportunity to be a part of your extended family.

I enjoyed the quick moments we had together, even sharing my "Friday Mojo" with you as we passed during shift change. And who could forget the restaurant detail you always worked on Friday nights. It was as if you were the "Unofficial Mayor of Jupiter", greeting all who passed through the front door with a smile, wave or a kind handshake.

It is those times we take for granted, but will never forget.

Thank you for being such a great person, your dedication and friendship to those around you will be missed forever. Our community has lost a true hero.....

Rest in Peace my brother
Those motor wings were angel wings all along.
