One passion was his love of antique International Harvester / Farmall tractors. We encourage attendees who can arrive on their tractors, to do so in honor of Bruce. We encourage the IH colors of Black and Red to be worn on this day, however all tractor colors are welcome!

Bruce was a valued mentor and volunteer for the Future Farmers of America Club where he assisted in a complete tractor restoration with the students. In memoriam donations can be made to “PYCSD” at Penn Yan FFA, 305 Court Street, Penn Yan, NY 14527.
