Bruce and Sue hosted many BHCA meetings at their home near the park. He was elected to the San Rafael School Board, serving eight years, and served on the San Rafael city planning commission for eight years.
For those wishing to remember Bruce with a gesture, please make a donation to the Marin Abused Women’s Service (www.maws.org) which Bruce supported quietly over the years. A service will be held in June.
