“Bruce has inspired so many of us,” said Kevin Barnes, a close friend of Mr. Krall’s and founder, with his wife Annie, of Faithfully Yours Foundation. “His friendship has made me a better person, a better husband and father. He has touched all of us in such a profound way, and we are proud to honor his memory and his wife Elisa and their two sons, Lucas and Logan, with this tournament and celebration.”
“The Bruce Krall Memorial Golf Tournament is an exciting way for us to help Bruce’s family, and we sincerely appreciate the overwhelming support of his friends and members of the commercial real estate professional community,” said Jack Cohen, CEO of Cohen Financial. “Golf was one of the many things Bruce loved to do with his sons and Coto de Caza is one of his favorite courses so it’s fitting that we celebrate his life here.“
