Bruce met the future love of his life, Joyce, in High School. They were courted on his motorcycle, where Bruce told the story of how he got in trouble from his mother by selling his saxophone to buy a buddy seat for Joyce. After graduating he attended RBI (Rochester Business Institute), and then was drafted into the Army.
Joyce and Bruce were married on May 9th, 1951. After a short honeymoon in Old Forge, he was deployed to South Korea for 18 months. Bruce owned his used car business, McNett Motors, for 36 years in Williamson, NY.
