BRUCE, Richard Allan Passed away suddenly at home in Acton on April 1st, 2006 at the age of 60. Beloved husband of Kris (Crosby) for 36 years. Much loved father of Tracey and her partner Brandon. Loving son of Doreen and predeceased by his stepfather George. Dear brother of Elizabeth and her husband Bruce. Loved brotherin-law of Dawn and Greg, Annette and Mike and Noble. Dear uncle to Greg, Heather and Ian. While not defined by his career, Richard enjoyed the challenge of his business life. His impeccable taste and creativity laid the foundation for the design of many beautiful frames, which will be viewed and admired for years to come. His strong character, integrity and genuine caring manner earned him the respect and admiration of all team members. Richard demonstrated a true understanding of what was important in life. He valued family time, friendships and the simple pleasures of life. He was an avid fisherman who appreciated the beauty of the world around him. He often said it wasn't about catching fish but rather enjoying the peace and tranquility of the water. Richard's presence will be felt this spring and summer in his flower gardens, which were truly labors of love. While far too short, Richard's life was an example in living rather than just simply being alive. Our lives have been enriched by knowing him and will continue to be through our memories of him. Friends will be received at the J.S. Jones & Son Funeral Home, 11582 Trafalgar Road, north of Maple Avenue, Georgetown, 905-877-3631 on Tuesday April 4th, 2006 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. Funeral and committal service will be held in the chapel on Wednesday April 5th, 2006 at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers remembrances may be made to the Juravinski Cancer Centre in Hamilton.
