Dad once told us, that life was for the living, and that when his own time came we shouldn't mourn his passing, but rather think of him as being reunited with mom in heaven.
Bruce was born on April 16, 1925 in Sifton, MB. He was the 6th child of 11. Bruce attended school for only a short time. At the age of 13 he started working, threshing and stoking and driving a team of horses. At age 16, he and his brother, rode the rails to Ontario for better paid work. Bruce tried to get into the army with his brothers Stan and Cec but it was found out that he was too young. He met Cecile Zaray from Pine River at a dance and they married June 2, 1951 in the chapel at Clear Lake. At this time Bruce was working on the railway with the B & B, building bridges. A timber dropped off a high bridge and landed on Bruce down below. The doctors gave Bruce 11 days to live. Because of so many broken bones they put Bruce in a trough of sand. He surprised doctors by surviving and when told he would never walk again succeeded in surprising them all again!
When he went back to work as a car man for C.N.R, they welcomed two children, Kathy and WAde.
They later moved outside of Dauphin onto four acres by the Riding Mountains. Here they had a couple of ponies, some chickens and a milk cow.
Bruce retired from C.N.R. after 40 years. In 2007 Bruce and Cecile moved back into Dauphin and 2009 he lost his wife, Cecile.
Bruce moved to Wawanesa PCH in 2014.
The family would like to thank the Wawanesa Health Center for their care. Special thank you to Sneath- Strilchuk Funeral Home for all their help.
