Mr. Robert L. "Bruce" Broussard retired from Conoco in 1997, moved to California, and began working for the Sycuan Fire Dept. May 31, Bruce was taking part in one of his routine 3 mile pack hikes for the fire dept. when he collapsed, was airlifted to Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, where he was pronounced dead at about 10 a.m.
As here in Louisiana, Bruce made many friends and enjoyed life with his coworkers and family. We knew him as "Bruce" and his coworkers at the Sycuan Fire Dept. knew him as "Mr.B", some of us even remember him as "mister clean". Bruce touched many of our lives through his friendship, comradery, and his willingness to be there for us. I had known Bruce since the mid seventies. I will miss him dearly.
