Info needed on Stuka Pilot - StG77

I am trying to find out any info on:

Hptm. H Bruck who I think had 39 missions flying the Ju87B with I./SG77 (StG77).

I found another website that showed the above info...but curious if there was any more info.

I ask because I recently acquired a Junghans clock which had an inscription on the back with this name.

Any info is appreciated!

Thanks!
