My deepest sympathies go out to the family. Bruce was such a generous man to me and countless other racers. I truly would never have been able to chase my dreams without the help of Bruce. Bruce had such a big heart and was willing to do whatever it took to get me to the track if we had any problems. I will forever be grateful to Bruce for his generosity and support he had for me.
You will be missed, Travis Kvapil

Augie Derenne and Family left a message on May 16, 2014:

About 35 years ago I met Bruce at the Pit Stop Bar after the races at the age of eight years with my dad Augie. A couple years later I met him again at his engine shop. After nearly 30 years had passed, I met Bruce again on a trip with Tom Hockers to the engine shop. I hadn't seen Bruce for the last five years, but each time we met he was the same great man I met when I was just a little boy. Bruce was very kind and well liked. He always amazed me and impressed me each time we met again. Bruce will be missed by his family and friends, but not forgotten. Lord, please give all of Bruce's family and friends strength during this difficult time. Amen.

Bruce was a great person. It is hard to find someone in the racing family that he has not helped. We will miss seeing him hustling through the pits to help someone with his great knowledge and experience. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Gary Lamonte left a message on May 15, 2014:

Bruce was not only our engine builder but a great friend of mine and my family's. It has been a great 15 year relationship which I will always cherish. Bruce would always stop by the trailer at the track and would talk to me and the crew. I will miss our weekly talks on the phone which were a lot the past fifteen years. Bruce was a great friend and all of us at Lamonte Motorsports will truly miss him. Our prayers are with Mary and the girls.

Mary, It has been years since I saw you. I was married to Jeff Bloy and he passed in 1979. When I saw Bruce's name, lots of memories came rushing back. I always enjoyed Bruce. He was such a nice man and then he found you and he was complete. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you and your family in my prayers.

We have only been neighbors for 6 months, but Bruce became our 2 year old son Desi's favorite with his Big GMC truck and three dogs. Bruce always took that extra time to talk with Desi. Mary, our hearts and thoughts are with you and your daughters. Please know that any help needed is a few short steps next door. Much Love, Heidi, Desi, Grandma Suzanne and DJ

I will miss seeing Bruce at the track, mom always made sure he never left the trailer hungry. Thank You to Bruce and the boys from B&B for always giving me the best equipment possible for the track and on the street. I worked with him for about 10 years and was always proud to say I ran a B&B.
