Well said D'Aless.
I too knew Fruce from the years we started skydiving together at Crosskeys. I regret not keeping in touch and hearing more about his new life in California, but I'm glad to know via this post that he continued to be true to himself and gracious to many other new friends.
Fruce was always accessible to me as I was transitioning from college to my professional life and despite the fact he was a high executive at Staples corp, he would always take my call, review my resume, and coach me through the interviewing process. I can't express how much he instilled in me a sense of work ethic and integrity and he helped shaped a sense of professionalism I'm very proud to say is a direct result of his advice. Most of all, his guidance to put my family first above career is what has meant the most to me.
I will miss him terribly. Please let me know of any arrangements, etc. as I wish to pay my respects.
Godspeed my friend. I'll always remember those fruce stickers.
