Peacefully after a brave battle while surrounded by family and friends, Bruce McLean passed away on August 4, 2000.
Bruce is survived by his wife Carla and the lights of his life his boys, Jarrod and Braeden.
Bruce was predeceased by his brother-in-law Derek Hammerstedt in 1998. He also leaves his parents Wilmer and Jessie McLean and one brother Merv (Wendy) McLean all of Owen Sound, sisters-in-law Wendy Cooke, Karen (Doug) Iwanoczko, Paula Zeaton (Dave) and one brother-in-law Wayne Basso (Darlene), Dawn and in-laws Rollie and Anne Hammerstedt.
Bruce was born May 17, 1953 in Owen Sound and moved to Kenora in 1982 where he began his career as a surveyor. Bruce has been a part of Carla's family since the day they met in 1982 and as he made his home in Kenora he was embraced by all who met him.
His humor and wit soon ensured him a place on his baseball team, the A.H. Flyers where his teammates soon became his life long friends. Bruce enjoyed fishing, camping and baseball but nothing compared to the time he shared with his sons.
He will be missed by his many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as his friends. With Bruce's love of baseball we're sure he is in the starting lineup.
At Bruce's request, cremation has taken place and no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, in friends so desire, donations to the Salvation Army would be greatly appreciated.
Today the tears fall fresh and free
The day we lost you came to soon,
but you will live on in your children
and in our memories.
All our love now and always
