Bruce Arthur Hall of Salmon Arm, BC passed away at the age of 63 on September 10, 2013.
Bruce was born in Revelstoke, BC on June 22, 1950 and had been a resident of Halls Landing (Sidmouth) south of Revelstoke, BC for his childhood. He moved to Salmon Arm in 1972, where he met and married his wife Trudy, in 1977. He was a well-respected business owner of Action Safety Service for 21 years.
He was a hardworking, kind man who was often found working on his property in his backhoe or riding one of his many toys. Morning coffee with his friends was one of the favourite ways to start his day. He was a devoted husband, father and grampa, and his family meant everything to him. He enjoyed spending time with his friends. He especially enjoyed camping, golfing, quading and just being busy puttering around.
Bruce will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by many, many friends as he touched so many in his life. He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Trudy (Garbutt) of Salmon Arm, two children; Jana (Ian) Bridgen of Calgary, AB and Joel (Lindsay) Hall of Salmon Arm, BC, one grandchild; Sophie Bridgen, two brothers and a sister; Don (Cindy) Hall, Bill (Margaret) Hall, Joan Wollbaum. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and other family members.
Bruce was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Hilda (Anderson) Hall of Revelstoke, BC.
