Re Bruce Huff

Out of the blue, the e-mail arrived. Another Toronto Sun Family member updating TSF on his whereabouts since his exit in 1994 after 14 years.

Bruce Huff, a local baseball and hockey legend in his own time, was hired in 1980 by the late, great George Gross and served as assistant sports editor for eight years.

Bruce e-mailed to add his profile to our Hired '80s posting.

"From the wilds of London, Ontario, here's a voice from the past," said Bruce. "Thanks for letting an old guy indulge in a bit of nostalgia."

No grass has been growing under Bruce's shoes since he left the Sun in 1994, as his profile shows.

Bruce is in the Who's Who of Canadian Sports for writing for good reason.

Prior to the Sun, he worked at the Chatham Daily News for two years and London Free Press for 11 years. After leaving the Sun, he penned an Off the Cuff column for the Toronto Star and London Free Press.

"Sun times were fun times," says Bruce, father of two and grandfather of four. "Laughter amid chaos. Pride amid crisis. Thanks for the memories."

Bruce, who
plays oldtimers hockey and is player/manager of an elite seniors slo-pitch team that plays across North America, has a birthday coming up on June 22.

All the best, oldtimer.
