<div itemprop="description">It is with heartfelt sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing on January 31st, 2018 of our husband, Dad, and Grandpa at the age of 85 years. <br><br>Devoted and cherished husband for 65 years to Lilyan 'Joan' Walker (nee Heeney). Loving father to Nancy (Stephen Fenn), Alan (Joanne Mohlmann), Heather and Wendy. Proud Grandpa of Jasmine Fenn, and Julia, Daniel and Laura Walker. Predeceased by his young son, Robert Francis, his loving parents, Francis 'Frank' Walker, Mary 'May' Nimmo, and his sister, Beverley Campbell.<br> <br>All who knew Bruce will have treasured memories of his caring and helpful nature, his friendly and outgoing personality, his passion for fiddling and bluegrass music, and his love of engaging conversations. He also enjoyed a good joke – whether giving or receiving. He worked for many years for Carling Motors and in the auto parts industry and always enjoyed learning about how machines work by taking them apart and reassembling them. His greatest pride and joy was his family whom he loved dearly. His wife Joan was a loving and steadfast partner throughout their journey together. <br><br>Bruce lived a Christian life and was a faithful follower of the church: Britannia United Church, Sharbot Lake Pentecostal Church, and The Life Centre. He always faithfully demonstrated 'God's love in action'. He will be remembered for his many volunteer contributions to his church families and to the music community: the “Country Church Band", church choirs and other bands. Bruce humbly and graciously served those less fortunate and was always happy to lend a helping hand to those in need. He loved being outdoors in nature and had fond memories of camping with his family, canoeing and hiking in many provincial parks. He especially enjoyed hand-feeding birds and chipmunks.<br> <br>The family wishes to thank the staff of the Local Health Integration Network, the Queensway Carleton Hospital, Fairfield Manor, and West End Villa for their excellent assistance and personal care. <br><br>Friends are invited to visit at the Pinecrest Visitation Centre, 2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa, on Sunday, February 4, 2018 from 1 – 3 p.m and again on Monday February 5th from 10 a.m until the time of a service to celebrate Bruce's life at 11 a.m. in the Pinecrest Chapel. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please consider a donation to the Ottawa Mission Foundation, the Ottawa Humane Society or a charity of your choice<br></div>
