Neville Bruce Ede

September 18, 1930 - October 6, 2015


Bruce was born in Guildford, England on September 18, 1930. He arrived in Toronto as a newly minted civil engineer in 1953. In that first year he started work in the pulp and paper industry, and met our mother Pat. After seven winters working at a Manitoba paper mill, they arrived in Nanaimo in 1962 with four children, and to Powell River in 1970 with seven.

Over the years Bruce had many outside interests—church, militia, boy scouts, girl guides and in later years community societies. He served on the hospital board for 10 years, and lastly headed the New Life Society providing counselling services for addiction.

Bruce was predeceased by Pat in 1996 and by his sister Diana in Chicago in 2015. He is survived by seven children, three in Powell River, Christine (Jamieson), John and Vanessa; in Vancouver by Dale and Melanie (Foster), and Deborah (Ede-Neville) in Edmonton and Heather in Ottawa: 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

No service by request, but feel free to join the family from noon to 5 pm on Saturday, October 10 at 4280 Ontario Avenue for tea and to share memories
