Teddy Murray and Bruce were best friends, perhaps because Teddy thought they were cousins. Teddy's mom was an Edmonds and Teddy has a slew of Edmonds cousins. In fact, they were not cousins, but were best friends until Bruce's untimely death.

Bruce has been gone a very long time.  So sad.  And such a person.

Bruce was the first boy I ever kissed.  I was so sad when I heard he had died years ago....and now David Boone, one of Bruce's good friends, lives next door to my best friend here in town (Pennsylvania)!  What were the chances of meeting an old high school friend in another state?

I Remember Bruce Edmonds As A Friendly Person. He Will Always Be Missed.

May His Memory Be A Blessing For All Who Knew Him!

If memory serves me, Bruce died in 1989. He was living in Sevierville, Tennessee on 11 acres he had bought some years before. I visited him in 1977 while I was living in South Carolina. He lived there with his wife Jackie and his mother Rosalie, who had retired. Bruce and his wife would eventually have 2 boys, which he was mighty proud of! I last saw Bruce when he visited me here in Texas for a couple of days in 1979; he was on his way to work on the nuclear power plant construction in Corpus Christi. Bruce was a pipefitter at that time. I learned of his death sometime not too long after the fact, while on a visit to Hampton. I called his phone # in TN. and spoke with his mother. She told me that Bruce had died from some type of intestinal/digestive infection/problem, soon after he realized (or at least mentioned to her) there was a serious problem.

Bruce was a fine fellow. He was a "gentle giant" in both stature and personality - and everyone that knew Bruce most surely was saddened by his untimely passing. May you rest in peace old friend.

Coming to KHS in the fall of 1964(my Junior year) and trying to play football for them was quite a task. That is when I met Bruce and he was very friendly to this newcomer who wasn't a football standout. Over the next 2 years I really saw what a man Bruce was. I truly believe because of Bruce's example, the other stars of the team became friendly and accepted me as a person. Graduating in 1966 was a good thing but bitter sweet, as my family moved to Philadelphia. Another 2 years of friendships passed by, yet I'll always remember Bruce. We weren't great friends but he was a great man!

My dad called him Moose. I called him friend.  Dad would wake us up with a bugle call and Bruce would moan, wanting to stay asleep. He never had a dad, but mine was there for him. I found out too late to be of any comfort. Which I desperately wish I could have provided. Bruce.
