My thoughts and prayers are with Jay, Megan, Greg and the family during this difficult loss. I had the pleasure of working with Bruce and found him to be a caring and compassionate professional who always wanted the best for his clients. He was also a very helpful colleague. He will be greatly missed.

Bruce, My memories of you go back a long way to when you and Brian were the No. 1 doubles team for Ferrum College tennis and would visit at my parents' home when I was Kay's high school-age kid brother. Those were great times and I know that nothing but the best of life continues unto eternity for you in the closer communion of God's heavenly realm. Go in peace my friend.

Bruce, I will miss you dearly; walking past your empty office is difficult. You and I were hired not that far apart from one another and we considered ourselves the “newbies” here at WVDRS and we formed a bond and team that will be hard to beat. We were the adult counselors in our district, and training days could be brutal, but your fist bumps for encouragement to start the day and finish the day really made me feel better on the tough days. I will miss being able to walk into your office to discuss a client or problem that I was stumped on and getting your advice/ideas. Or if I was stressed about something, you would tell me “you’re over thinking it, stop it”, and sometimes I got to say that to you, too. I am in awe of how you advocated for your clients and the heart you poured into each and every single case you were assigned to. I learned so much from you in the short ten months that we worked together; I will carry those lessons with me. I will continue to stay steadfast in my convictions, to approach every difficult situation with an open mind, and I will ALWAYS take time to enjoy my friends and family and leave work at work. I will miss the way you spoke about your love for tennis and your family, every time you spoke about those subjects, you lit up. I always enjoyed hearing about your wife, kids and your brothers. And enjoyed our talks on our trips to either training or lunch. You truly were a joy to be around. You will always be family to those here at WVDRS; we will miss you greatly, and so will the many clients you worked with. I pray for peace and comfort for your family, I know you will always be around watching over them. A beautiful soul is never forgotten, and you won’t be. Rest easy my friend.

May your memories bring you comfort, those close to you give you support and those who knew Bruce during former school days, offer our prayers and condolences for peace to all the family. I am so sorry for this sudden loss.

My friend, my coworker I will miss you. The office motivator, the guy who was always there with a fist bump, the guy who would do what he could for anyone - a kind word, a ride to work, a smile for us all. A man who taught me that there are really men who are so in love with their wife that it is so worth the wait and that even after years of marriage there is still love. I have truly never seen a man who was so in love with his wife even after all the years you were together. May God give your family peace and strength.
Kit Arbo left a message on November 28, 2017:
RIP Bruce. You were a scholar and a gentleman and I always enjoyed playing tennis with you regardless of whether we were on the same team or we were opponents. I will miss you and will remember you fondly.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Powell family. So sorry to hear about Bruce's passing. Over the years we lost track of each other but my thoughts go back to our childhood when we lived directly across the street from the Powell's and all the Powell boys. We had a blast playing together everyday. We recently lost our brother Greg, so I know how tough things are for your family right now. May the Lord give you peace through this time. I have only great thoughts about you guys.
