A very proud Cape Bretoner, Bruce started his service in the military in 1982 at the age of 18. He served in the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment as well as the Canadian Airborne Regiment 3 Commando. Bruce finished his service in the military as Master Corporal in 1991 to pursue his passion in carpentry. Anyone who knew Bruce, knows that he had a great talent and love for woodwork. He continued with this work even in his later years in life. An avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing, hunting, boating, motorcycles, ATVs, and snowmobiles. Bruce had many hobbies that brought joy to his life. This includes spending those times with his beloved dogs, Bowzer and Teddy. Bruce also had a great love for music, a self taught guitar and harmonica player; he never missed an opportunity to jam with other musicians. He also had a great love for travel to serene places.
There will be no formal service in Ontario, however there will be a reception to celebrate Bruce’s life at the Royal Canadian Legion in Forest, Ontario on Friday November 5th from 5PM to 7PM. Future arrangements for a service in Sydney, Nova Scotia will be determined at a later date.
