Sharing Memories of Bruce Michael Durso
e-mail to Peggy Smith
Bruce and I were roommates our freshman year at OU. First place was in a house on the street behind Sterr's grocery store. The next place was a garage apartment north of Brooks street and east of Classen, nice neighborhood. We had a great time together, especially at O'Connell's Irish Pub. He always was looking for ways to make some extra cash. One job I remember he had was as a Referee. Great guy.
Lots of good memories, can't remember much now (senior moment?).
