To Bruce's family. I am saddened to hear of Bruce's passing. I worked with Bruce in the 80's and 90's at Colony Brokerage - Honor Foods in Philadelphia. I have not seen Bruce in many years. He was always a professional kind of guy back then. I am sorry for your loss. God Bless.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I met/knew Brother Shiffler while I was a missionary in 1985 in Carlisle. He was a great man. Again, I'm sorry for your loss.

Judy, I am so saddened to hear of Bruce's passing.  After many years I just recently crossed paths with Bruce and we had a wonderful conversation. He was the same old warm friendly personality I remembered from years before. I am so happy we had this short opportunity to talk. I offer deepest sympathy to you, the kids and family.  I am so very very sorry!

Jim Stuart
Judy and family.  I have known Bruce for many years working in the convenience store industry.  Bruce recently sent me an obituary of the passing of his brother.  So I was shocked to see Bruce had passed.  Bruce was a terrific person and I always enjoyed his company.  He was very proud of his family. The world lost a great man.   Very sorry for your loss.

I was saddened to hear of Bruce's passing. I dealt with Bruce for many years in my place of business in Carlisle. He was always a gentleman and a pleasure to interact with. He would often talk about his profession, and he seemed passionate about it. I'll never forget the time he brought me a generous sampling of product that he sold through his company. He took the time to explain how to prepare the food, and I recall enjoying it thoroughly. Bruce was a genuine, down-to-earth fellow. He would often talk about his family during our conversations, and it was clear to see that he was dedicated to his loved ones. Bruce had my utmost admiration. My deepest condolences go out to Judy and the family.

So sorry to read of Bob's demise.  It seems like such a short while since I met him as we both worked at the dear old Embers.  My warmest regards to Judy and the whole family.

Jim Green 
To the dear family of Bruce,  We send our thoughts and prayers.  Bruce was greatly loved by our family.  He will be missed.

 To Judy and Family,
My sincere sympathy on Bruce's passing.  We originally met when Bruce worked at Colony Brokerage, and had recently worked together with his representation of our Handy Pies.  Bruce was a real gentleman, well respected in the food industry.  He will be missed by all who came in contact with him. It was a real shock to hear the news, and I am very sorry for your loss.
