Obituary for Bruce Burrows
BRUCE MICHAEL BURROWS
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family announces the sudden passing of Bruce Burrows of Seabright, NS.
Bruce was born in Grand Prairie, Alberta and lived in multiple locations throughout his childhood including Brussels, Miami, Quebec, and Bogota, Columbia. Seabright has been the place he called home for over 40 years. He loved his career in freight delivery from the minute he started because it encompassed his two favourite things - driving and talking. He had a big heart and loved signing with The Cardinal Points and acting in many musicals with the St Luke’s Community Players, and his most recent love - his Mopar Dodge Charger Special Edition #98 which he spent many hours pampering. Bruce’s greatest love was for his grandchildren, Darian, Lincoln, Alissa, and Layton, the pride and joy of his life. Bruce’s kind spirit and zest for life will live on through them.
Bruce will forever and lovingly remember by his wife of 42 years, Linda (Covey), sons Jonathan (Dianna Seward) and Christopher (Kara (Sweeney)); brother Blair (Shelley), and their children Ruth, Sarah, Brian, Rachel-Anne, and Robert; sister-in-law Elaine and her children Beth and Barbara; nieces Christine and Cathy; sister-in-law Louise (John) and their children Liam, Grant and Ellen; mother-in-law Eleanor Covey and her sister Virginia Boutilier; Uncle Jim (Pat); Uncle Grant (Joan); Aunt Edna (Patrick); extended family and dear friends. Bruce is predeceased by his father Leslie, mother Bertha, step-mothers Hazel and Gladys, brother Bob, sister Brenda and niece Darlene, brother Brian, and father-in-law Jimmy Covey.
A service will be held at St Luke’s United Church at 5374 St Margarets Bay Road at 11am on Friday, April 28.
The family wishes to thank the staff at the QEII Hospital for their excellent care. In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Bruce can be made to the St. Luke’s United Church for the Community Players or to a charity of your choice. Bruce was always there to brighten the lives of others and will be greatly missed.
