Bruce D. Kreiger died on Oct. 28, 2013, in Boca Raton, Fla. He was a resident of Wilton from 1996 through 2012. Bruce’s younger son, Dan, graduated from Wilton High School in 2003. Dan was very active in the community and in the school, particularly in music.

Mr. Kreiger was born Dec. 9, 1943 and graduated from CCNY in 1965. He then earned both an MBA and JD from the University of California, Berkeley.

From his early years, he was an amazing jazz musician and played many instruments, concentrating on the trumpet. He volunteered at performing art schools, teaching music to young children whose families couldn’t afford lessons.

He practiced law in San Francisco, for Dean Witter and Shaklee Corp.; in Massachusetts as general counsel for a Colgate Palmolive subsidiary; and as the general counsel for Blyth Inc. in Greenwich, Conn.

He is survived by four sisters, his spouse Lin, two sons, David (Laura) and Daniel, and one grandchild, Jonah. Memorial gifts may be made to the Joslin Diabetes Center, 1 Joslin Place, Suite 742, Boston, MA 02215 for Islet Cell Transplantation Research conducted by Dr. Gordon Weir.
