Bruce accepted Jesus as Saviour at 21. In 1985, the family moved to Winnipeg, where Bruce worked at Palliser Furniture. After retirement, he volunteered at the MCC Thrift Store. Bruce is best known for his art. His chain saw carvings dot the neighbourhood. He loved to surprise friends with portrait sketches. In 2012, Bruce was diagnosed with a liver condition, which slowed him down and proved fatal. He was proud of his grandchildren and participated in their lives with joy. His faith remained strong during his illness, and he was ready to meet his Maker.
