Mr. Bruce Patacairk

Birth date: January 18, 1947

Date of death: September 29, 2023




Bruce’s wish to die at home in Rockland was fulfilled when his Angel came to bring him to his final resting place.

He and his loving wife and caregiver Beverly (Draper) would have celebrated their 56th Wedding Anniversary on October 7th, having begun dating in 1963 and married in 1967.

He was the proud and loving father of Leigh Anne, Victoria and David (Kerrie), Poppa to Amanda, Peter, Amelia and Sophie, great-grandfather to Isaiah.

Bruce retired after 37 years at Hydro Ottawa giving him more time to enjoy his simple hobbies, fishing and hunting, RVing and spending time with his family. His retirement wish was to travel the open roads in a motor home and loved his time in Arizona and Florida, always ready to lend a helping hand, making friends along the way. 

He will lovingly remain in the hearts of his family and friends.


“We’ll done, thou good and faithful servant…Enter thou into the joy of the Lord”

Matthew 25:21
