When I takled to his mother half a year later, I found that

After Bruce Pitney died in 1996, it did not occur to me that my “in memory” comment should be more than a link to his obituary. I have long felt a need to personalize my recollections.  After Shaun McNally, Bruce was my early playmate. In fact, we had a “McNally Pitney Stark (MPS)” club with iron-on letters on t-shirts. I walked to Bruce’s house on Martin from Marlin Dr. East. Kids were safe back then. “He’s still in his room,” his mother Audrey would say. “Go on up.” He had a younger sister Joyce and an even younger brother, Danny. I was delighted some years later when the Pitney’s moved to the corner of Marlin Drive West and Arden, much closer to my house. There, his room was the attic, big enough to set up a Lionel train set, the one with 3 tracks. Attics get hot. He had a window air conditioner, the first I saw. -Bill Stark (January, 2018)

Bill, what beautful remarks for Bruce.   Yes, a little expansion to his life as your friend opened a door to my memory.  I did not know him well....out 19 down Sunnyhill Drive on Iroquois most of my school years.  Although I finished high school on Royce...I never got involved in that hood.  Thank you for your comments....they were welcoming.
