We are so sorry to hear of Bruce's passing. He and Grace were such good friends of Irene's at Tiverton Park Manor and they spent many afternoons playing cards. Such a thoughtful gentleman he was. Please accept our sincere sympathy.

I so enjoyed getting to know Bruce when we worked together at the post office in TIverton. He always had a smile on his face and a good story to tell! I learned a lot of information about the area from Bruce. He was truly a joy to know. My deepest condolences to the family. Mary and Ron Hutt
