Dear Hunt Family,
It is our prayer that you will find peace, comfort and grace during this difficult time. It was easy to get to know Bruce because I work for Alyson and I saw him several times a week. It was a joy to see his love for Alyson and a bond that I am sure many daughters would love to have with there Dad. I look forward to spending more days with Cherie and Alyson and see the Lord knit our hearts closer together.
Love and prayers,
Dan, Janet, Gretchen, Bryan and Daniel Kaffenbarger
Cherie & Family,
I always considered Bruce a good friend. Cindy and I knew Bruce from high school but I got to known him better during our time together on the Sheriff’s Department. Bruce enjoyed that time very much as did I. He was always there to help someone and was a kind and caring man to all in Champaign County. I know the family will miss him as will all his friends, classmates and fellow deputies.
