Bruce was one of my favorite customers, despite his illness, he was absolute ray of sunshine! When Deborah was able to get away with her sister, Bruce called me at work to see how I was doing. Such a kind man that will be greatly missed. My condolences to Deborah and his family.

Christelle Jubenville(Midtown Animal Hospital) - October 12, 2021

Bruce was one of my favorites. When he would come to my work with his pets he would always make my day. He always made me smile and laugh. He would even do driveby's to wave hi even if he didn't need to come in for anything. He had the best attitude in life. Always so positive. He will always be in my heart and will miss him dearly.

Vicky Clark - October 9, 2021

My sincere condolences to Deborah, your Boys and to Bruce’s Granddaughters, whom he loves dearly and would always share his proud Grandpa photos with me. Bruce was a sincere friend, who cared for many and cared about many. I worked beside Bruce for many years at Community Living West Northumberland until he retired a few years ago. Bruce was a great listener and a true friend. Bruce’s kind demeanour will forever be missed.
