His long time companion Sue Wilson, along with her family, will find an empty spot in their lives. Marcia Wilson (Klaus Mey), Rob and Rachel Wilson, and grandchildren Alex, Kate, Jacob, Charlie and Nate.

Bruce was a long time employee of Finning Canada as a heavy duty mechanic, and upon retirement took up

wood-working.  No project was too hard to tackle- from a doll highchair to a dining room buffet- all made with

perfection and love.

For the walkers of  Riverside and Pioneer Parks- you shall miss his wonderful smile and determination walking five days a week, rain or shine, wind or snow. The park staff shall also miss checking their watches- same place,

same time each day.

As a long time Kamloops Blazers Fan, Bruce was able to

listen to the Kamloops vs Tri Cities Game on the 8th and this made his last few hours so much more enjoyable.  Thanks guys for doing so well this year.

The families would like to thank Dr. Paul Farrell and

Dr. James Baughan for the wonderful care they gave Bruce. For this the families shall always be grateful. Many thanks for all your kind thoughts these past months.

Remember Bruce’s quirky smile.

A Celebration of Life shall be held at 2 pm, Friday, 

February 17th 2012, Chapters Viewpoint, Lower Floor,

610 West Columbia Street Kamloops.

Donations may be made to the charity of your

choice in honour of Bruce.

Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home
