R.I.P Bruce.

We had our agreements and disagreements over the last few years but I always gave him a pass because his heart was always in the right spot trying to help someone out. Good guy and a wealth of knowledge that will be missed.
Thoughts and prayers to his family.

Yes it does!!

Oh my god ! He finally lost his long battle with cancer. I definitely had my differences with him too. But he definitely was a good guy. Sad to see him go.

Heart felt sorrow for the family. RIP Bruce

He’ll be miss by Pontiac family I’m sure.

Bruce Wilkie was a true Pontiac Guy who fought, in his later life, to be with us on the forums one day at a time for several years.

He was a good person, when you talked to him on the phone, or sent him an e-mail. And He loved Boosted Vehicles.

Rest in Peace Bruce. You gave it your best shot each day for quite a few years.

Yes we had pm'd a few times, we were not always on the same page, but he was a real Pontiac guy to the core. I always had good conversations with him, he loved boosted stuff too. R.I.P. Pontiac brother!!
