Bruce Irvine

Bruce William Irvine, aged 90 yrs, passed away peacefully after a brief illness in Palliative Care Unit at Bluewater Health, Sarnia on Sunday March 14, 2021. He will be dearly missed by his family. Bruce was born in Elgin Mills, Ontario in May 1930, the son of Bill and Grace Irvine and half brother of Rodger. He lived eighteen years in Toronto and Wasaga Beach before moving to Hamilton when his mother married Len Back. Bruce was the beloved husband and best friend of Marilyn for sixty-six years, much loved father of Steve (Pam) and Nancy, grandfather of Adam (Jenn) Irvine, Lisa (Matthew) Lingard, Rhiannon Roberts and Jake Irvine and great-grandfather of Lily, Reid, Evianna, and Adelyn. Bruce served in Canadian Army Signal Corps during Korean War and was employed by Bell Canada in Hamilton for over thirty years. His passion was his forty year association with the Hamilton Tiger Cats as water boy, equipment co-manager, scoreboard clock keeper, and TV spotter before moving to Corunna and then Sarnia. He was a lifelong fan of the Maple Leafs and Tiger Cats. He loved the Blue Jays, golf, reading novels, watching old movies on television, and traveling. As Bruce wished, there will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place and a graveside service will be held in Hamilton at a later date. In lieu of flowers sympathy may be expressed through memorial donations to the Sarnia and District Humane Society or to Corunna United Church. A special and heartfelt thanks is to be extended to Dr. Stoesser, Dr. Crombeen and the caring nurses of the Palliative Care Unit for their care and compassion shown to Bruce during his time there. Arrangements entrusted to the Knight Funeral Home, 588 St. Clair Parkway, Corunna. Messages and condolences may be left online at Knight 519-862-2845
