Bruce lived his life to make every day count!  He spent many hours hunting and fishing.  He loved a good game of darts and a night out on the town dancing.  He was friends with everyone he met.  Bruce may have been small in stature but he sure filled the room with his presence. 

A special thank you to Bruce’s home support workers; April Beales and Sherry Goulding.  The staff, Doctors and Nurses on 3B at Western Memorial Regional Hospital, his family Doctor,  Dr. Peter Callahan and Mandy for the excellent care given to Bruce and to Fillatre's Funeral Home, especially Florence Kelly for the wonderful service. You are all angels!

He will be sadly missed by many! Rest easy my darling husband.  You are now free from pain and you have your legs to carry you again!

There will be no visitation.  Cremation has already taken place. However, there will be a private graveside burial, by invitation only at Mount Patricia Cemetery on Wednesday Feb. 2nd, 2022 with Captain Darren Woods officiating.
