A grown man’s love of a little boy’s game and the passion for turning these boys into fine young men. This is Bruce’s legacy.
Bruce Kaminski will forever be remembered as a loving husband, father and passionate youth baseball coach. Every summer for his final ten years, he coached every baseball team his younger sons’, Jason and Ross, played on. He patiently shared his love for the game of baseball with hundreds of our young boys. As a respected role model, Bruce demanded discipline and honor both on the field as well as off. Learning the game he loved never come at the cost of having fun. As the Glencoe Baseball program began to lose players to other programs, he fought tirelessly as a member of the Glencoe Baseball Association Board to help reverse this trend. In the end, this giant among men fell at the hands of cancer.
Bruce is survived by his wife Dawn and children Dan, Carly, Jason and Ross. The Kaminski family remains a very important part of our community. Dawn continues to serve our children as, among other things, Administrative Assistant at Central School and current member and past President of the Glencoe PTO.
In honor of Bruce’s memory and The Kaminski family, a new baseball scoreboard and memorial marker will be installed at the South Field (Bronco Field). The gift is from the friends and community members that will miss him dearly.
