Obituary of Donald Stuart Bruce


BRUCE, Donald Stuart - Don passed away suddenly after battling cancer for the last 3 years, at home in Peterborough, on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 81 years of age.

Beloved husband of Peggy (nee Tran) for 59 years.

Loving father of James, Douglas, David, Daniel and the late Donna.  Dear grandfather of Alex, Heather, Carly, Bryce and Phoebe.  Proud great grandfather of Dot and Pearl.

Brother of Bob, Patricia and the late Margaret.  He will be remembered by many other relatives and friends.

Donald was raised in the Stouffville area. His childhood home later became the Bruce Mill Conservation area. Always full of energy, Don was devoted to his passions of gardening and woodworking. He was a keen sports competitor, playing football in high school and later becoming an avid curler. He often returned home from a bonspiel with some prize, even once a canoe. Don grew up a farm boy but found his career in the mining industry, travelling through the north of Canada and the world. Even in retirement he did not rest, working for seniors through community service programs. Always practical and full of advice, he will be missed by family and friends

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Canadian Cancer Society.

A graveside service will be held at Melville Cemetery, 11248 Kennedy Road, Stouffville, on Saturday, Sept. 21 2019 at 2:00 pm.  No reception planned due to health issues.
