  3. Bruce Herriott will most certainly be missed by everyone who knew him. As a life long neighbor of the Herriotts, I can attest Bruce was special..a man who lived his faith every day. A gentle soul who is now at peace with those who went before him. Darlene, Pat, Dan, and their families are being remembered by us in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

  4. to Darlene Herriott;
    Please accept my condolences. I have such good memories of visiting your home during my four years at Union College (1976-1880). I remember playing chess games with Bruce and wonderful meals made by Darlene. You always treated me like a close relative and part of the family. It is my 53rd birthday today,so the years do pass quickly! I am sorry for your family’s loss. God Bless.
