Bruce was born in Nova Scotia on February 9, 1948. Part of his education included Briarcrest in Saskatchewan and Trinity Western in Langley.
Bruce was an avid fisherman. He guided in Haida Gwaii and Campbell River. But some of his happiest years were spent in Tofino where he operated Smiley Charters. He repeated often that he was so grateful to God for the privilege of earning his living in the scenic waters off Tofino.
A Celebration of Life for Bruce will be held at Grace Point Church, 3072 4th Avenue, Port Alberni on Sunday March 8 at 2 pm. Pastor Rory Franks will be officiating.
