Bruce was a second father to me. Growing up with Rob as my best friend meant that I was at his house or he was at mine every day. I have so many fond memories that I still carry with me and will the rest of my life. Here are a few that still make me smile and helped shape my life. -Learning to sail and all things nautical, which inspired my love of the ocean -Early morning and late night rides to and from hockey -Killer hamburgers cooked on the back steps -Cutting down the trees that fell on the house during hurricane Bob -Always helping my dad get car parts -Telling us funny stories and sharing life lessons we needed to hear -Great sense of style with the boat shoes, shorts and button down shirts! -Always having new technology like the earliest car cell phones Mostly, I just remember him being a great person who always wanted the best for his kids and treating me like I was part of the family, which means he was nice to me, but tough on me when I deserved it! Nobody ever thinks they have cool parents, but Bruce was cool and I feel lucky to have known him since I was 7 years old. I will forever keep him and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Love Matt

To Carol and Family I am so sad to hear about your loss, Bruce was a great guy and I always looked forward to our conversations when I happened in to Paul's.

Bruce was our good neighbor for more than thirty years. We could always depend on Bruce to be a caring and thoughtful friend, whether it be with a quick and friendly wave while off to work or his next adventure on the boat or an enjoyable conversation in the back yard on a myriad of subjects. We will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with Carol and family.

Bruce will be greatly missed at the Woods Hole Yacht Club.... where I first met him. He clearly enjoyed the camaraderie at the club, and was a well- respected Commodore. He was also devoted to his family, and their sailing together. Fair Winds, Bruce..... and love to Carol Lynn, and children.

Carol Lynn and the entire Courcier Family - My deepest sympathies on Bruce's passing....I know it has been a long battle. I go back to when you both moved to Falmouth and am a long-time friend of Matt, Christina and, especially, Leslie. Bruce was always good to me and I always welcomed his warm demeanor. I wish you and your family many loving memories of a really good guy who will be missed by many! MD

Many long talks at Paul's over the years about anything except vehicles about which I know almost nothing. Many chats featured his father-in -law we knew from our days owning the Sleepy Hollow. What a wonderful guy, this wasn't surprising but extremely sad news.
