BRUCE GLEN BRIDGE Bruce passed away suddenly on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 in London, ON. He was the beloved son of Lenore (Millar) and the late Donald Barry Bridge. Bruce was born on May 15, 1964 in Winnipeg, MB. He attended Athlone School in St. James. The family moved to Oakville, ON in 1972 where Bruce was a pupil at Maple Grove, Chisholm, E.J. James and Oakville Trafalgar High School. Bruce was also a student at Carlton University in Ottawa. During his school years, Bruce liked to participate in theatrical productions and he was an avid curler. Bruce worked for Canada Customs in Oakville and Fort Erie, The Canadian Indemnity Company, and for several years in the fashion import business. In his spare time, Bruce loved to read, watch classic comedy and laugh with friends. He was a friendly, tender-hearted man who will be remembered by everyone he met. Bruce is survived by his mother, Lenore, of Goderich, ON, his sister Aynsley McKay (Michael) of Napoleon, OH (Chloe), and his brothers Jeffrey of Surrey, BC (Dianna and Bevin) and Paul (Kathi) of Whistler, BC (Ian and Natalie). Bruce was involved in an auto accident that left him somewhat impaired in recent years.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • To the family, my most sincere condolences on the passing of Bruce. I only found out today, my heart is broken. We were best friends on his first year at Carleton University and we were tied at the hip. We met in French class and I was drawn to his wonderful sense of humour. We had a lifetime of laughter and good times that year that I shall carry in my heart forever. Although things changed after his accident, he was always close in my memory and thoughts. God Bless and Rest in Peace my dear friend. Much love from Robyn Searle - Posted by: Robyn Searle (Friend from Carlton U) on: Feb 27, 2018

  • Dear Lenore, I don’t know if you will remember me but I used to date your late brother Bob and used to babysit Jeffrey and Paul when they were toddlers. I didn’t realize you had two more children and am so terribly sorry about your son Bruce. There is no greater loss than that of a child. I was also sorry to hear that your husband Don had passed away. Thinking of you. Sincerely, Lorrie - Posted by: Lorrie Waugh (nee Wilton) (Friend) on: Feb 18, 2018

  • I'm so sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. I fondly described Bruce as one of my first friends ever. I can clearly remember playing in your backyard in Winnipeg and then during our visits to your home in Oakville. Oh the can you mention Bruce and not think of that laugh. He was a true character. My deepest condolences to Aunt Lenore, Jeff, Paul and Anysley. - Posted by: Maureen Drohomirecki ( Mo Bridge) (Cousin) on: Feb 13, 2018

  • We were shocked and saddened to hear of Bruce's passing. I always enjoyed visiting Bruce in Oakvile and Goderich as well as his visits to Winnipeg. Bruce was a very caring and enthusiastic man. He had a way of making you feel like you're the most important person in the room. I remember the photo above well and looking at it again brings back fond memories.
