It was only today, at the memorial service of another wonderful member of our communities (Dan Molter) that I heard of Bruce's passing. I am so sorry to all of the family, and so wish I could have seen Bruce through the years (high school friends) and honored him at his memorial. The legacy that both Bruce and now Dan (Molter) leave to family, friends, communities at large goes beyond human words. I am grateful to have known them both. Milf Kroening

As I reflect on 2013 and the treasures I have been fortunate enough to encounter, I can not help but ponder again on the wonderful spirit of Bruce Krier. An open ear, a compassionate heart, a no-nonsense approach to business and a sparkle in his eye. There are many people who pass in our lives, some with greater impact than others. Bruce believed in me, my company and my character. Our friendship was rooted in Wisconsin and continued to grow across the country. May his soul be forever young on the golf courses of heaven and his spirit forever be fed with the best thrills of fast cars rolling through beautiful open country. You are a missed man Mr. Krier, Peace be with you.
