In Memory

Bruce Gaetz - Class Of 1991

I would like to pay tribute to Bruce Gaetz. Class of 1991. Bruce Gaetz died September 20th, 2004 of cancer. Bruce is survived by his wife Tami and his parents Mr. Wayne and Mrs. Susan Gaetz. Bruce was my best friend throughout highschool and years after. I relocated to Ft. Irwin California after my days at Zama and Bruce attended USC in Los Angeles. He came up to visit me and my family every other weekend and especially during the volitile times during the L.A. riots. I will forever remember those times as some of the best of my life.

Bruce was diagnosed with a brain tumor after having suffered a seizure while driving in Los Angeles. His car was totalled and fortunately no other injuries were reported as a result of his accident. Bruce got some of the best medical care available at Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Fought his way through all his chemo sessions, had the tumor removed and after everything was looking good, the tumor came back with a vegence. Bruce died that Monday morning with his wife and parents and friends at his bedside.

You'll forever be missed Bruce
