from Jake 

Bruce was always a reasonable voice in late night conversations...He was a friend to many.  I'd met Luanne at a Halloween party in '73 at the Baumstown house.  She's still a good cook and patient partner.  She liked Bruce's stories and excellent pictures, as we all did.  Not so many canoe trips in the last 25 years... sorry, we didn't know how sick he'd been at the end.  Our best to Bonnie n Ben from one of his friends.

I am so thankful I can say Bruce was truly a great friend. I had the honor of getting to know Bruce during my BBall days. My boys just Loved Bruce... I was tall but they just loved someone taller than me.. Although my kids were only young they loved to brag that they shot over Bruce... Not that he couldn't have blocked every shot but he sure never wanted to discourage a kid. I unfortunately have not been able to keep in touch with Bruce but he was the kind of friend who I could see and talk too without skipping a beat. I also remember how he would be at every Boone basketball game many times with his dad. He was always there to see Ben and I always loved talking to him about the games when we would get together on Sundays at the Birdsboro Y. I just want to send my sympathies to the Sadowskas  family. We have lost a great man..Please Take Care
