Online Condolences for Bruce Brock ( October 1, 1929 ~ November 19, 2017)

November 26, 2017
Mardella, Neil, Paul, and Carol -- I was saddened to hear about your loss. I have fond memories of spending time with all of you on backpacks and drives and all of those things decades ago. And Bruce was a big part of that. I know nothing will fill the absence that Bruce will leave, but I hope it brings some solace that even friends from long ago have you in our thoughts. I wish you the best. -- Eric Eric Weber (Denver, CO)

Bruce and Mardella are among the finest people we have known anywhere, including Bozeman. They were instrumental in helping with our youth work, loaning snowmobiles for winter trips and equipment from ABC Rental for our groups building the Kirk Hill Nature Area (now known as the MSU Foothills Nature Area). Both were strongly supportive of our local museums, especially in the founding of the Gallatin History Museum. Whatever the community project, they were to be counted upon. Bruce and Mardella were always cheery and welcoming to everyone and raised three outstanding children. Bruce and Mardella were and are exemplary people. With deep appreciation, Rusty and Dave Swingle David Swingle (Bozeman, MT)

"I just wanted to thank you for all your help with my dad's funeral.  Planning a funeral can be very stressful, but you took such care that we were never confused or stressed about anything.  It was so easy to call and talk with you and ask questions.  You presented all the options to us clearly to let us decide about things, and then you made them happen at the service so we didn't have to do anything.  You are so very good at your job."
