Memories Timeline


  1. I am honored to have called Bruce my friend all these years. He was a truly special guy. The Gillen family sends all our love to the Celotto family.

  2. We were always close from 1965- Present
    The fun times and many long conversations which included deep laughs that forced you to put the phone down so you could compose yourself. We just clicked. We had the same sense of humor and we always treasured our history together.
    When I moved to Florida 30 years ago we lost contact visually but never lost contact by phone
    In my opinion Bruce was a man who cared!
    He loved his Sweetheart TR and his fantastic kids and grandkids. In our many conversations over our 56 year friendship he always had insight into people we’ve known over the years and never a bad word was mentioned
    In closing I bow down to the courageous soul of Bruce Stephen Celotto who never complained once about his medical conditions. Plotter I salute you God Speed!!

  4. We are deeply saddened by the passing of Bruce.
    I will always remember his keen sense of humor.

    Debbi and Jay Dunne
