We Lost A Great FOB From Ontario Canada- Bruce Bonham

Bruce had been a regular on GMG from the early days even though he lived in Canada, and visited every summer.  Always friendly and upbeat he loved GMG and Our City.  In the picture below you can see Bruce with the original GMG Bumper Sticker back in May 2009, a year and a couple months after GMG started and Bruce was already hooked.

Daughter Jacquelyn writes-

Just wanted to send a big thank you to Good Morning Gloucester, My father Bruce Bonham who passed suddenly on March 3/15 was truly a fan. My parents spent many years vacationing in Gloucester ” Rocky Neck ” and  my dad always wanted me to see his favorite spot.  I was fortunate enough to join my parents on trips to this special place.  My father loved this so much he said he felt he was home.

Good Morning Gloucester was a regular routine for my dad with his morning coffee.

I want to thank all the people of Gloucester, Mona and her husband at Rocky Neck Accommodations, thanks for making our stays special and of course the boat rides.  Thanks to Brenda who conversed a lot with my dad. Thanks to the Rudder who always found us a table.  Thanks to you Joey for of course Good Morning Gloucester, and the Lobsta!!. To Nights On the Neck for making us feel welcome, and to Town of Gloucester for the same.

Thanks again for making this my fathers very special place

Hi Joey,
Thought I’d send you this holiday greeting from St. Catharines, Ontario, CANADA!!
Thank God for GMG! Keeps us informed about the greatest place on earth.
All the best to you and your family,
Bruce and Louise Bonham
ps – see you at the dock in May — if all goes as planned!


Hi Joey,
You may recall I was at the ‘dock’ last Tuesday (Sep. 21).
Since 2004, we’ve stayed at Mona Faherty’s Rocky Neck Accommodations.
Since I’m now retired, we’re trying to make the trip from St.
Catharines, Ontario (near Niagara Falls).
Obviously, we love the area. And we love GMG!
Thought I’d send you three pictures I took during our last visit, if
they’re any use to your web site.
See you next May, if all goes as planned!
Bruce and Louise Bonham





Hi Joey,
A warm greeting from Canada!
We wish you and all your thousands of blog viewers a healthy holiday season.
Hope to see you in the spring. Especially eager for a Gloucester and Rocky Neck appearance since having to miss 2012’s visit.
Take care,
Bruce & Louise Bonham
St. Catharines, Ontario
