We will miss you Bruce Hagen!

Bruce was a great supporter of the Richard I Bong Veterans Historical Center and he will truly be missed! As outlined in his obituary, Bruce was very content in making things happen and not necessarily taking the credit. Whether it was being the driving force behind the recent Belknap Street project or just quietly supporting organizations like the Bong Museum, Bruce enjoyed being involved.

As evidenced by his role in the above picture that was included in our 2012 calendar, he also had quite a sense of humor! He was happy to be able to appear in that calendar and he proudly displayed the original in his office until he retired as Mayor of Superior.

As a friend of the Bong Museum, he attended many functions and visited the museum often. He always had kind words for the staff and the volunteers and offered many suggestions over the years that contributed to our success.

Yes, he will be missed but more importantly he will be remembered!
