DORCHESTER, MA — It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our friend and team member Bruce Seals. Bruce’s passing was unexpected and leaves us with a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. Bruce has been a member of our Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester family for over 30 years. He was a friend, mentor and legend to so many; Bruce was always willing to lend an ear, time and his talents with kids. Experience is something only gained with time, but a mentor provides insight and guidance. Bruce shared lessons learned, bringing humanity to problems, motivating kids to learn more and to do better. Bruce yearned to be the kind of person he needed when he was a kid. He will be missed more than words can say. Rest In Peace to our dear friend and colleague.
