  2. This is sad news, but the life of Bruce Williamson was a life of determination and courage. I watched him at the gym as he worked to maintain his strength. Its certainly a legacy to celebrate.

  3. Bruce and I, cousins were born and grew up as infantile babies on the mesa to the mountains just east outside Albuquerque New Mexico in a compound consisting of four homes, as such on land designated and donated by our grandfather Millard Paul (Dutch) Williamson. I Don Grossetete being a year older than Bruce was always getting the two of us in some mischief. I had an older brother by four years so he and l didn’t get along at these times in our lives so it was like Bruce was my brother. And l relish the times we had. Brotherhood. As times rolled on, high school we slowly drifted apart. And l still remember and love my younger “brother”.
