 Bruce was so full of life. My thoughts are with his family. We spent a lot of time together at the last couple reunions. I think we were the last ones standing at h 50th. Many will miss his bright personality.

I had just been in contact with Bruce through this sight and had no idea he had physical problems.He was too positive to talk about the negative.

Bruce was fun to be around, interesting, full of life with lots of stories and a big heart. The world needs people like Bruce. He made it a better place because he was here. My condolences to his family.

Bruce and I sat together at our last class get together for dinner earlier this year.  We had not seen each other in years.  What a great time reminiscing  about football and high school in general and, of course, catching up on where we were now. Bruce was a character then and right up to the very end.  What a shock hearing of his passing.  So unexpected.  My condolences to his family.

Bruce, Tim Sheehan, and i were in the hospitality suite at the 40th reunion late one night and slightly inebriated. We were having a great time with jocular reminiscings. I told him he was awlays gregarious. Bruce looked at me curiously, and Tim piped in, "That's a good thing." I mention this because the comments relate a concsensus regarding Bruce's personality. Since the 50th reunion, Bruce, Kadon, Hayden, Carlson, Ludington and  I have played golf and attended class dinners in DuPage County. Bruce traveled the farthest, coming from Indiana. We had talked at the start of the golf season and he was having some medical problems that were preventing him from playing. He was supposed to be able to play in mid August; but he never got better.

My memory of him will be watching him hit the straight, accurate approach shot, in his bermuda shorts, and seeing both legs splayed out because of knee damage from playing  oprf football.. He looked handicapped but he assuredly was not. Safe Journey, my friend.

I went 9 years with Bruce Horsky at Irving school.He was in the other class there and I know we played

alot against each other in sports.    I enjoyed sitting at the same table with him at reunions. He will be greatly missed!

I met and got to know Bruce when we were sport rivals between Irving and Lincoln Schools, culminating in the 8th grade basketball champioship game. He was a funny, personable, and kind person. I did enjoy our robust conversations at the reunions along with Bob McLaren and others. I would like to extend my sincere condolences to his family. He will be missed. He is at peace now in his eternal home, Rest in Peace Bruce,
