It is with great sadness and love that we announce the passing of Bruce Johnston on January 21, 2021 at the age of 69 after his courageous battle with Cancer.
Bruce was born and raised in Edmonton where he spent his younger years helping his parents raise his three younger siblings. Bruce would spend summers camping with his family, all six of them in their little blue tent! He spent his winters playing hockey and throughout the years countless hours training dogs with his Father.
Bruce graduated High school in 1970 and immediately began his career with Fiberglass Canada, now known as Owens Corning where he retired after an honorable 45 years. During his tenure, he completed two apprenticeships and made many valuable friendships especially with his maintenance shop boys.
Bruce met and married his best friend Kathy, the girl next door and they raised two sons together. The family enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting and spent many memorable years at Baptiste Lake, the Skeena River bank and fishing on the Ocean.
Bruce had the biggest heart and was admired for his easy going personality and was always the first to lend a helping hand. He was an avid fan of the Edmonton Oilers and never missed watching a game in the garage surrounded by his good friends, family and his dogs.
Bruce is survived by his wife Kathy, his sons William (Erin), Brad (Krista); Grandchildren Sage, Taylor, Sierra, and Hayley; Sisters Barb, Belinda (Byron); Sister in law Bonnie and many nieces, nephews, extended family and good friends.
Predeceased by his Father Robert, Mother Alice and Brother Barry.
A celebration of life will be held when it is safe to do so in a true “Bruce fashion”. In honor of Bruce Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
