In Memoriam – Bruce Dillon

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Bruce Dillon, one of the founders and past presidents of Friends of The Legacy Trail. Bruce was the driving force in proposing and promoting the extension of The Trail into downtown Sarasota. His vision, experience, and counsel will be missed. There will be a celebration of life Saturday December 5 from 1:00 until 3:00 p.m. at Toale Brothers Ewing Chapel in Venice.

The following video is from the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office 2019 Community Crime Prevention Volunteer of the Year Award presented to Bruce.
