I send my condolence to the Yenni family. Bruce and I went to school together from the 1st to the 12th grade. He was always a very fun and nice classmate. He also worked with my Mother at GE. She often talked about how he often talked about his girlsl. My prayers go out to you.

Grew up in Columbia and spent many days and nights at the Yenni house. Don and Edna always made us feel welcome. Me and my three brothers along with Bruce always found interesting things to do, Bruce was very creative and loved the outdoors. My condolences to the family, RIP Bruce, I’m sure brothers Jerry and Greg saw you at the gates to Heaven. Thanks for helping create many memories. In sympathy, Steve Norman
