Bruce was a quiet man with a kind heart. He had a passion for driving. His career in sales took him to every town in B.C. He was an avid reader of mysteries and history, enjoyed British TV, playing cards, telling entertaining stories and puttering around the property. In retirement Bruce loved to travel. He RV’d to the NWT, Yukon, throughout BC, and extensively through Mexico and the Baja. He also enjoyed his trip exploring India from north to south. Bruce enjoyed meeting people of different cultures and their history.
At Bruce’s request no service will be held. A spring gathering will take place when his ashes are interred in Keremeos, B.C.
