Bruce Henry George 1932 — 2014

Bruce Henry George

We are saddened to announce the passing of Bruce Henry George of Kamloops, BC, on February 18th, 2014 at age 81. Bruce is survived by his loving wife Myrna, children Sheryl (Lou) Grande and Lorri (Murray) Cagnetta, both of Kamloops. Also left to cherish Bruce’s memory are grandchildren Lisa (Reg) Pain of Kamloops, brother-in-law Gerry Leighton of Calgary, AB, and sister-in-law Rita Leighton of New Westminster, BC, as well as numerous nieces & nephews, and his long time friend Bob Bonderud .He is predeceased by his brother, Hale Bradsen, and sister, June Love.

Bruce was born in 1932 in Cochrane, ON. After completing his schooling, he worked in the gold mines in Timmons, ON, before moving to BC in the early 1950’s, where he met and married his wife, Myrna. Bruce worked various jobs throughout the province such as logging, equipment operator, road construction and driving for Arrow Transfer, which led him into his last 20 year career as a Business Representative for the Teamsters Union, Local 213. He and his wife retired to the Little Shuswap Lake in 1991, where he enjoyed golfing, fishing, travelling south and his volunteer work as the Fire Chief for the Little Shuswap Indian Band. Then in 2005, they returned to Kamloops to be closer to family and friends.


“Like summer flowers, we grow into life’s visual splendid beauty,

Then we slowly fade away.

But it’s only in our passing that our true spiritual beauty,

is released to carry on in our endless journey into the universe.

Thanks for being part of my life, Bruce…”


– Murray
