February 8, 1938 - June 14, 2020

Sadly, but joyously, we wish to share the news of the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, grandpa great, gentleman and friend, Bruce Bancroft.
He is survived by his wife of 61 years Ellen and children, Carrie (Dale), Garth (Robyn), Liz (John), and Alex. Bruce was a proud Grandpa to 12 grands and nine greats, all of whom enjoyed every moment with him,
particularly these last five, very special, months. He is also survived by his brother Glen (Wendy) and their children of
Vancouver, BC. Bruce is predeceased by his parents, Jack and Peggy.
Due to the current public health orders in place, a celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In the meantime, Bruce's family kindly requests that all of his friends and
relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by visiting his tribute page at A photo-biography, as well as memories and stories published by those who knew him, are available there.

  • Lyle and I were so sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. Our sincere sympathy and prayers go out to you and your family. When I heard the news remembered all the fun and good times we had together. Love, Lyle and Ruth - Posted by: Lyle and Ruth Goodman (old friend) on: Jun 28, 2020

  • A heart warming video/tribute to Bruce as we remember him as a genuine and joyous person - and with a great singing voice. His version of "I went to your wedding" was a much requested song at many occasions. Ellen, may you and your family feel God's presence and peace at this time. - Posted by: Jack & Linda Bernhardt (friends) on: Jun 27, 2020
