He had vacationed in Cape Coral, FL for the last 23 years before becoming a permanent resident five years ago. Born in Nyack, New York he resided in South Jersey for 50 years. Bruce had spent his career in carpentry and cabinetry. He was a talented self-taught craftsman, and eventually opened his own carpentry business, Barker Craft, which he operated for 12 years. After selling his successful business to Intelco, he served as a consultant to the new owners until retiring. Bruce had a real passion for boating, and even served as a Cape Coral volunteer Marine Police. Another passion of his were his beloved pups Cosmo and Desi who he enjoyed taking to the Wagging Tails Dog Park. Bruce made many wonderful friends in Cape Coral who will forever keep his memory in their hearts.
