Bruce could be found every Wednesday having lunch at the Legion with his Telus crew and at the Saturday meat draw, often having luck on his side. What Bruce most loved to do, was going for drives and visit with family and friends whenever he could, often having a “touch of scotch”. He enjoyed telling stories of his days when he volunteered with High River Ambulance as a driver and EMT. But most of all He loved visiting with his grandkids and was always interested in what they were up too. His humor and kindness will be great missed.
