Dear Pat, I am so sorry for your loss. I had no idea about his passing until I saw a letter in the Star today. You and Bruce were so welcoming when I moved to Winchester. If there is anything I can do for you in the weeks and months ahead, please just call or come over for a glass of wine.

Bruce and family have been our best friends since arriving in Winchester in 1974. Our families spent many activities and meals together. Bruce always had a solution to machine problems in his well stocked shop. Our most recent project may never get done. I hold great respect for all the Dawsons and will continue that relationship. Julie and I deeply grieve at the passing of a wonderful person that played a central roll in our family. Smooth skiing Blue Bunny.

Dear Patti Belle and Family, Our hearts and prayers are with you and family at this time. We have many fond memories of Bruce that we will cherish forever. We always enjoyed being with both of you, so much fun. Our consolation is that Bruce is enjoying a new life with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, forever young, free of all earthly cares for eternity. Although there are tears of sadness on this shore, on the other shore there are tears of joy as Bruce is reunited with all his friends and family that have gone on before. In due time with God's grace we will join him in great reunion. Donald and Sandy Abrell

My deepest condolences to the entire Dawson family. In the past year I’ve had the pleasure to have many conversations with Mr. Dawson. He was proud to show me his office with his many treasures and I stood in awe of his talent. I would walk up to his office from time to time and he would show me his latest project which was normally something special for his beautiful wife. He was talented with his hands and with his heart and words. He was always kind to me and he will be missed by many. Sending prayers and hugs.

To the Dawson family, Bruce was a supervisor of mine when I worked at O'Sullivan in the 80's and 90's. I could not asked for a better boss. He was fair, kind, gentle and as long as you did your job that was all he asked. He was a good mentor. We flew together to Detroit one time with Bill Radle, Jan Knorr, Jim Lantz and several other. He was the same when he traveled to places to discuss business as he was in the office. A gentle man with a gentle smile. I got to know his three sons and wife Pat. And NW Works was his baby. Years later as I went to NW Works for napkins to be printed he was still very much involved. God just got an engineer ANGEL. May God hold each of you in the palm of his hand during the days ahead.
Pat and Allen Houck left a message on January 13, 2019:
Our sincere sympathy is expressed to Pat, Jeff, Cris, Scott and families. We met Bruce in 1979 when Allen and I moved to Winchester, with Allen beginning employment at O’Sullivan. Bruce was Allen’s boss and no one could ever ask for a better one. The friendship we both enjoyed with him, the kindness he always showed us will forever be remembered and treasured. As so beautifully stated in his obituary and proved by the life he lived, Bruce was, indeed, a remarkable man. As I write this the words of Micah from the Old Testament come to mind. Micah 6:8 “ He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Bruce did that. Our lives have been enriched by his friendship and we are grateful.
