It is with broken hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Bruce Boyko, on Friday, September 11, at the St. Boniface Hospital, at the age of 76 years, with his family by his side.

Bruce was born in Selkirk, MB. As a young man he worked with his Uncle John building bridges in Southeastern Manitoba. On Sundays, him, Betty and the kids would drive around the countryside admiring the bridges he built and looking for farm machinery. From there he worked for the R.M. of Brokenhead as a Loader Operator. He later moved on to work for the Manitoba Rolling Mill. In 1976 Bruce's dad passed away. Bruce together with his wife Betty, decided to take over the family farm. They settled into the community of Garson, and he continued to farm right until the end.

  • Betty, we are sorry to hear about the passing of Bruce. I still remember the first time that I meet him at the Garson School. We were both in Grade One and liked to play on the swings. Our paths continued to intersect while we were both at school. God be with you and your family during these trying times. - Posted by: Bob & Dorothy LaFontaine (Friend from Garson) on: Sep 26, 2020
