Robert Bruce Paterson December 30, 1946 – May 30, 2021
Our beloved Bruce died peacefully with family by his side on Sunday morning at the age of 74. We are devastated that he is no longer with us but grateful that he had a peaceful beginning to his new journey. Bruce is predeceased by his parents Gord and Mary Paterson.
Loving husband to Brenda. Father to Jennifer, Erin (husband Mark), and Taylor (wife Irene). Grandfather to Kaiden, Aidan and Olivia. Brother to Billy and Joan. Friend to many. Will also be missed by cats Jules and Buddy.
Bruce was a gifted man with a passion for music, book collecting, photography, building computers, and barbecuing perfect chicken. He retired from Ellis Packaging at the age of 63 as the Chief Financial Officer and enjoyed time with family, reading, and scotch. He had a hearty laugh, a playful sense of humor, a big heart, and a gentle presence.
Bruce was a very generous and kind man and who loved to help other people. Since he lived with Parkinson’s, please consider donating to Parkinson’s Canada in his memory: Parkinson's Canada
The family will host a celebration of life at a later date.
