Bruce was a mentor, and friend at WestJet. He had an inherent bent to train and develop others. Breakfast at the house with Jeannette and the crew is a great memory. Thanks for letting me be part of your lives.

RBR……one of the true characters in our business of fixing planes. I met Bruce for the first time in 89 when I joined WD team in Edmonton. It didn’t take long to figure out that Bruce had a fractured sense of humor and always an eye open for an opportune prank. However, as Gary W mentioned earlier, once Bruce started making those six foot strides……stand clear.

It’s been an honor knowing and working with you Bruce. For my friend, RIP.

Well Bruce, so very sad this day has come. I have lots of fond memories from ward air days to Canadian days. One that comes to mind when you and all the Hudson general boys brought the trucks out to calmar to help me move. And will never forget the day you came barreling down the isle of an aircraft yelling at me for opening the door. Being a newbie you set me straight right away and kept me straight and trained me well. You were the reason I carried on with Canadian. I think about you and the good old days often. May you carry on with the pranks and laughter beyond you made me laugh so very many times. You will be dearly missed by many. Love ya! Sandy Nelson.

We have so many wonderful memories of Bruce from our Wardair days together in Edmonton. His sense of humour, jokes and stunts come to mind quickly, as well as his generosity and compassion. RIP friend, we’ll miss you.

Many memories of Bruce come to mind. Wardair, Canadian, WestJet. You knew when Bruce was on a mission… really big steps. I will always remember a boat trip that we had together a few years back.
I will miss my friend.
My condolances to Janelle and all the family.

Loved Bruce, a man’s man to say the very least. Taught me and so many of my friends about sports and more importantly life.


You made men out of many boys from the Wetaskiwin area and we will always be grateful for that. Rest in peace sir. Craig Kelley

Jerome Kroening

Bruce, enjoy the great beyond, I am sure you’ll find a hockey team to coach, an aircraft that needs fixed, and a prank that needs played. It was great working with you for all those years.


From our family to yours. Our thoughts are with all of you at this time. Bruce had such a passion for sports and all our boys will never forget the memories they made during the times he was their coach. George and Charlotte Heemeryck, Shane, Warren, Lori, and Bradley.
