Gwen and Eric, I’m sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I remember his smile was filled with warmth and happiness. He was a pleasure to know.
Dear Corrine, my heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family. I pray God will give you and your family comfort and strength, through this sorrowful time. I will never forget Bruce, he was a great guy. When we worked together at Community Banks of Colorado, he always talked about how proud he was of you and his family. Also, his love for his guitar and music. I remember the time, when you, Bruce, Jeanette, Jim, Joe and I went out, after our Christmas Party, it was a good time. He was always a happy guy. May God bless you and may Bruce rest in peace.
I had the pleasure of working with Bruce at Community Banks of Colorado. He was the softest spoken and kindest gentleman. My husband Jim got to meet Bruce at a company Christmas party and they shared their passion for guitars and music. I have wonderful memories.
My heartfelt prayers go to Corrine and family whom Bruce was so very proud of. God Bless
So sorry to learn of Bruce’s passing. He was probably one of the kindest most caring and soft spoken man I’ve ever met. His passion for music and playing guitar was quite evident. We used to visit often about music when you were still in Rocky Ford and I still taught. He was so proud of Gwen and Eric. Please accept my sincere condolences and may the Good Lord bring you comfort during this difficult time.
I am so sorry for your loss. Bruce was such a caring and giving person. He always made time to share his knowledge at work, his love of music, and his love and pride in his family.
Eric, Michelle and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Keeping you all in our prayers at this sad time for your family.
With sincere sympathy,
Gordon and Helen Murley
My sincere condolences to the Slyter family. Bruce and his family were my neighbors in Las Animas, Colo. for a number of years. We lived across the alley and I was over many times to listen to Bruce and Jeff play the guitar. I still remember Bruce with his slicked back hair in the day with his Pomade. I think it was Three Flowers. So long ago… May the Angels listen to his music and smile, the way I did. Rest in Peace.
I am deeply saddened to hear of Bruce’s passing. I worked with him for many years at Community Banks of Colorado and we became good friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you Corrine and all of the family. May God Bless you during this difficult time.
