Bruce Springle, dead at 46
I never met Bruce Springle, but he's had a long career in the security industry and I wanted to pass along news of his death. According to his obituary, he died August 25, leaving behind his wife Linda and two children, daughters Emily and Rebecca. Most recently, he was working as a regional sales manager for Mace, and Mace sent out a nice note alerting me to his death:
Bruce Springle had been involved in the security industry for over 20 years and had extensive experience in alarm monitoring, video surveillance and access control business segments. In addition to Mace, Mr. Springle worked for several excellent security companies including Guardian Protection Services, Monitronics, JCI/Cardkey and ADT. ... Dennis Raefield, CEO of Mace Security International, Inc. stated, â€œWe are very saddened by the sudden and unexpected death of Bruce Springle. He was highly regarded in the industry and by everyone at Mace. Our prayers go out to his wife and family. â€According to the obit, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bruce Springle Memorial Fund, f/b/o his children, c/o The Bank, 315 S. Black Horse Pike, Williams-town, NJ 08094; or American Red Cross, 5425 Route 70 West, Penn-sauken, NJ 08109. Expressions of sympathy can be e-mailed to: Condolences@GardnerFuneralhome.com.
