Correct me if i'm wrong, but I think he spelled his last name Burger. Bruce A. Burger. A, stands for Arnold, which was his fathers name. I'm also trying to find out if there will be a service. I heard that there will be one Sunday, but haven't heard if it was decided on or any of the particulars. I think his daughters who live in Tennessee and South Carolina are coming to the area. His brother lives in Chagrin Falls. And a sister lives somewhere else, who is also flying in. There's supposed to be something in the obits of the Plain Dealer & News-Herald on Wednesday or Thursday, but I haven't been able to find anything. Anyone, with any info. please post or pass it on.

Thank You

To all who are concerned :

The tribute show for Bruce Burger has been cancelled, effective immediately, for good -- due to a lack of support on my behalf from his friends and members of the radio station at WCSB 89.3 FM. Maybe if someone who is reluctant to come foward and help me out from the station to concoct and format a tribute show for Bruce that was suppose to happen last year, then maybe I wouldn't cancel it altogether. But until someone comes forward, this case is off my shoulders and defintely cancelled for good.

Any suggestions, questions, comments or whatever, feel free to contact me at my e-mail address, no phone calls please !!
