In the early hours of March 3rd 2016, Bruce was finally released from the retched effects of Parkinson’s and Lewy Body disease. He gave them such a brave, courageous, graceful and most of all stubborn 26 year battle.
Born in Burnaby, Bruce spent most of his childhood years on the family farm in Haney. From a very young age he showed a talent for the arts. He grew to be an accomplished and well respected glass and wood artist.
Bruce spent the last 36 years in the Comox Valley with his wife (of 42 years) and soulmate, Kathy. He designed and built a beautiful home to raise their 2 sons; Gordon Lawrence ( Saki) and Chad Matthew.
He will be dearly missed by all of us, however we will go on knowing he is now at peace.
Such appreciation goes to the caring, compassionate staff at Ocean View care home, where Bruce resided for his last 8 months. As well to Dr. Burgess for his personal care of Bruce.
Please join us for a Celebration of Life, Saturday April 23rd at Glacier Greens Golf Banquet Hall in Comox. 3pm to 5pm.
The family wishes that those who may want to donate in Bruce’s name; please do so to the “Art Therapy Program” at the Views at St. Joseph’s.
