June 14, 1948 – September 10, 2019
Bruce was born in Saskatchewan and raised in Alberta. Son of Tom and Alpha Taylor. Bruce was a sweet natured boy… his whole name was Bruce Allen Peter but Mom and Dad called him Bruce Allen Peter “Cottontail.” Later he enjoyed sports and played baseball and hockey and he was very good at both. In his teens he added the love of cars, trucks, motorcycles and of course girls. He had a daughter, Tammy (Evan) and two grandchildren, Lauren and Tiernan. They were the light of his life and he enjoyed and treasured seeing them more than anything. Bruce rebuilt cars and trucks and even won awards doing so. He owned and operated his 18 wheeler and drove all over North America. He had many adventures. Bruce was a station master in Saskatchewan and Alberta for the railroad. It could be a very lonely job. One of his most beloved jobs was that of a school bus driver. The kids just loved him and he loved those kids. Bruce also worked in a soup kitchen in Penticton for about 5 years before moving to Phoenix Manor in Grand Forks for his last year. He really liked living there. He loved the people and enjoyed helping the girls. He was always the first one to put his hand up when help was needed. Predeceased by Tom and Alpha Taylor (parents). Survived by: Midge (Elmer) Androsoff, sister; Tammy (Evan), daughter; Lauren & Tiernan, grandchildren; Lars (Dawn) and Laranna, nephew and niece; Trinity, great-niece; and many cousins and friends.

“He ain’t heavy…he’s my brother.”
