  2. Velma, we are so sorry for your loss. Bruce had such an infectious laugh, and such a great man. We’ve shared many great times together! Thinking of you and your family.💞💞

  3. Our sincere condolences to Chantelle and the entire family.
    Our thoughts are with you at this very difficult time.

  4. My sincere condolences to the family. I never met Bruce, but his name is very familiar. My dad Robert Mackintosh would often retell stories from his youth that included Bruce. Reminiscing about those memories always put a smile on my dad’s face.
    Thinking of you in this time of sorrow.

  5. Our deepest condolences to you Velma and to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  6. Velma & family,

    I worked with Bruce way back in the Bluenose days. Many of good laughs with Bruce. I always remember he said we were related through the Twohigs. Many years later doing family genealogy, I discovered a Twohig connection with a slightly different spelling as common then, just unsure how far down the treeline. Always meant to reach out to Bruce to discuss further. Sadly, my loss. And sadly, a great loss to you as you try to rebuild without your biggest cheerleader at your side. My sincerest condolences.

  7. My condolences to Velma and all family. I regret not being able to make it for a final goodbye. Bruce was one of the “boys” from Lakeburn (“The Patch”), who would head straight to the rink or ball field after school, or hook up with some others for a weekend hike to the lake. We crossed paths later in the 80’s and 90’s both at the rink and as on the road salesmen. He had an infectious laugh and could always put a smile on my face.

  8. Velma, Réal and Murielle are so sorry to hear of the passing of Bruce. We send you our deepest condolences.

  9. My sincere condolences to Bruce’s loved ones. I worked with him while I was working security many years ago while navigating university. Bruce was always taking care on me and others on the crew and was literally the best. He always talked about how proud of his family he was and always had a twinkle in his eye while talking about fishing.
    You will be missed Bruce

  10. Just learning about this. Very sorry. My condolences to the family.
    I remember doing bread deliveries with him when I was a kid.
