I would like to thank Mr Ruxton for all the great things he has done for our country and the people who served for our country. You efforts will not be forgotten. Would like to express my sympathie to the family and friends of Bruce, and hope you will find the strength and support to deal with this great loss.
I agree with what former premier Steve Bracks said: A great Victorian has died, someone who put veterans first, second and third. RIP Bruce
