Greenstreet, Bruce Roger
On Sunday, August 1st, 2021, in his 81st year, Bruce entered into the presence of his Lord. He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Susan (Browning Knight); children Philip (Sheila), Suzanne Young and Pamela Fanuzzi; sister Eva Elston (Clare), sister of Rhoda, Beryl Martin (Claude); step-children Jodi Greenstreet, Joy Knight (Scott Fleet), Sarah Knight (JJ Palmer) and James Knight. Bruce leaves behind three grandchildren (Matthew and Michael Greenstreet, Ashley Young), three step-grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He will be fondly remembered by his cousins, nieces, sister in law Linda Browning Morrow (Lorne), brother in law Paul Browning, and many friends. Bruce was predeceased by his wife Rhoda (Meeks), parents Horace and Bessie (Roger) Greenstreet, mother and father in law Sadie (Summers) and John Meeks and his grand daughter Kristin Young. Originally from Kirkton near St Marys, Bruce loved farm life. He was a talented athlete, Nortel (Northern Telecom) employee of 30+ years, ten years as maintenance technician with the Unionville Home Society and a skilled handyman. Old friends and relatives remember his achievements in high school track and field, especially the pole vault. All remember him for his sense of humour, high energy level and kind personality.
Bruce joyfully lived his faith in his Savior Jesus Christ and the Bible and he loved being part of Christian communities Bramalea Bible chapel and Milton Gospel Hall. While it has been a difficult journey losing Bruce bit by bit to dementia, this has been eased by the compassionate care and support he received at Grace Manor Brampton. A private funeral with video streaming will be held at Meadowvale Funeral Centre, Brampton on Monday August 9th at 2 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to one of the following: MSC (Missionary Service Committee), Wycliffe Bible Translators Canada, Grace Manor (HCH Inc) or the Canadian Alzheimer’s Society.
