A Bruce Fan Forever
by Joe LeGrand
(L-R) Jim Lyons Sr., Linda Lee Cadwell, Joe LeGrand at Bruce and Brandon Lee's grave site.
I first learned about Bruce being buried in Seattle from a fellow soldier during my assignment at Fort Lewis, WA back in 1979. He received a newspaper clipping from his mother which had an article about the anniversary of Bruce's death and the location of the cemetery, so myself and three other soldiers headed for Seattle to find Bruce. Once entering the cemetery, we found a multitude of asian tombstones and thought, we would be in trouble if Bruce's headstone was only marked in Chinese characters. The four of us headed in four different directions and found Bruce in about twenty minutes.
I've visited Bruce's grave many, many times after that and even meet Linda Lee Cadwell on one recent occasion. I picked up my first pair of nunchaku at age 14 right after seeing Bruce in Enter The Dragon and still swing them at age fifty-three.
