I ( Ron Alexander ) worked with Bruce at the North Sydney Highway Patrol (1984 – 1987). In 1985, Bruce and I were selected to participate in the development of a trial (4 day) Anti-Terrorist driving course at the Police Driving School, St. Ives, as the Highway Patrol was used for mobile security details. The powers to be wanted to provide a higher level of protection for visiting Heads of State and NSW Governor.
Bruce was diagnosed with cancer sometime after that and later transferred to Engadine HWP. I understand that Bruce continued to work through his treatment, until he could no longer perform his duties, due to the illness.
When Bruce was on Roster, everyone wanted to work with him.
Bruce had an infectious smile, causing all who saw it to smile back. He was a loyal colleague and his word was his bond.
It was a sad day when he passed. His wife Judith Louise SPADARO only recently passed away, July 2017.
