  9. Marlene, We are so sorry to hear of Bruce’s passing. We haven’t seen Bruce for quite a few years but remember him fondly when he was in the CCGA C&A as a Member, Unit Leader and Deputy Director. We always had a bit of fun together and Bruce had a good sense of humour. I remember one time at the last minute they hurriedly put an inflatable back together for an exercise. The steering hydraulics were reversed so they had to steer in the opposite direction. It was funny to see but they made it through the day. Bruce took a ribbing with his usual good humour. RIP Bruce.
