RIP to Bruce one of the first people I met when I landed in Belize 35 years ago he was a Dive Instructor at Ramons Village along with his Aussie team mate Andy.

One of the original instructors on the island that trained up the locals with Larry Parker from Journeys end as well as working for Ray Bowers and Out island Divers Bruce was well liked by many

He stayed on the island for many years and left a few years before I left as he was heading back to Oz but quickly found himself living in Thailand as I did and we had just reconnected a few weeks ago after many many years and poof just like that he is gone.

RIP Bruce we never got a chance to catch up

Thanks for posting Gaz. We have all been heart-broken to hear this news. Bruce had planned to visit Belize in September, we have all be excited and awaiting his arrival. It was such a blow to hear that he had died, so quickly and unexpectedly. There will be a memorial planned here in Belize and memories of the many, many good times we all had together will be relived for many years to come.

Yes so crazy I was just chatting with him a couple weeks ago and he was saying he was heading back and was excited to be visiting.

Crazy how things change so quickly.

There is a celebration of life for Bruce at Carlo and Ernie's Runway bar on Wednesday September 13 at 2pm. Please bring some photos, memories, and a pot luck dish if you are so inclined. Looking forward to see all the old faces.
