  1. I am who I am because of you. You were my Mentor and my Friend, I Love You and Miss You, Ride On Pop, RIDE ON!

    Love Your Son Wayne

  2. Expressing my deepest sympathy and prayers for all of the family and friends. We called him Grampa, Gramps, Pops, Dad…..he taught us all so much and loved to surprise us at Christmas with whatever he skillfully made out of wood that year. In his last few weeks he was trying to figure out how he was going to get down to his shop and make gifts for everyone. He had so many talents and skills that he passed down in some way to all of his children and grandchildren. It made me happy to know that he thought I cooked him the best eggs :). We love him and miss him but can look forward to seeing him again one day.
    With love,
    Dena (daughter-in-law)

  3. You were the smartest, funniest, most talented man I knew… My hero!

    Because of you…
    – I am acutely aware of the need to put borrowed items back where they belong
    – I can’t be in a grocery store without recalling images of you rolling cans down the aisles to me!
    – I can jump out of the car, open the hood, bridge the gap in a bad solenoid with a screwdriver, close the hood, jump back in the car and restart it before the traffic light changes…. In a mini-skirt!

    I could go on and on. Because of you, Life was always a series of funny adventures, with hundreds of stories to tell. I’m sure I’ll still have the adventures, but they won’t be the same without you!

    It was an honor to be your daughter. I love you Daddy!

    Love, your daughter Shari

  4. We would like to express our sympathy to all the family and let you know that we have been praying for you all in your loss.
    We were privileged to receive gifts of his wood creations, also.

  5. To the family, I offer you my most sincere condolences.

    Bruce was my friend since the middle 70’s, we did a lot of things together especially motorcycle ridding. There was nothing he couldn’t do if he set his mind to it. We shall all miss him greatly, they tossed the mold away when they made him.

  6. Uncle Bruce, I will miss you very much, but I know that you are now with my mom, who loved you dearly. In my mind’s eye I can see my mom laughing at your pranks and jokes. I remember back to times when our family vacationed together at a lake side cabin in Massachusetts. With a large numbers of kids running wild, having a ball, you took time for me. You taught me how to play jacks. After mom’s death in 1998, I published a book of mother’s stories about her childhood. She also kept an article written about you when you were in high school. Grandpa Williams was one of the first citizens of Dalton to purchase a TV. Back then the only way to receive TV channels was with an antenna. The article stated how you would climb a very high antenna located in the back yard and adjust the direction of it to receive channels as far away as Chicago. Poor Grandma Williams, worrying that you might fall, but knowing you loved gadgets she would smile and pray at the same time. RIP Uncle Bruce.
