Even his bad moods were good moods; Bruce always maintained a sunny disposition. Ironworking was imbedded in his DNA. His father, brothers and son all belong to local 401. Bruce erected steel in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, making friends as he went along. If he was there, everyone at Falcon Steel could rest assured the job would be running smoothly. His Lawn was cut at least three times a week and he tested the water in his pool several hundred times a day. He relaxed a bit by riding his Victory Motorcycle and played a little golf, though he threw more than his fair share of clubs. rnrnA young Kathy McGovern noticed that a guy named Bruce was dating all of her friends. They too would soon begin dating. Their 39 year marriage was blessed by Matt and his wife Mary, who was more than a son, he was Bruce’s best friend and co-worker.
