I believe this is the same Bruce Clark who lived in Branchton a number of years ago. He was my backyard neighbour one house over. I remember a chimney fire at his place and I loaned him my fire extinguisher even though being a fireman did not have one in his house. I still live in Branchton.
Picture is of his house from my deck.
I remember him as a great neighbour and very friendly.

You taught me so many life lessons throughout my life. From you I became a responsible and caring person and to think of others first.
I remember the times when you let me skip school to go on one our father/son fishing trips. It was on these trips that I learned so much more than how to fish, I learned patience, honesty, and integrity. Thank you for instilling in me the importance of being a responsible and independent adult.
I only had to see you and mom together to know what kind of husband and father I wanted to be.......you set the bar high.
I will treasure our memories and be grateful that we were able to give our unconditional love and support, most especially these last few years.
The bond that we shared as father and son will be missed but never forgotten.
With love, Alan
Bob and Valerie Toth

RIP my dear sweet dad..he had such a gentle spirit and tender heart...he was so devoted to loving us and my daughters had the best Pappa!! He always said to us "you are my special girls" and Claire and Mallory were always in his lap or he would be down on the floor with the girls playing and hearing the house full of squeals of laughter!! So many great memories of the cottage and Florida trips every year and he lived with us for many years so im thankful for having so close to me. He whispered in my ear not too long ago in hospital "you will always be my baby and I love you very much!" ...love you dad ❤
