Beloved husband of the late Patricia Fairman (nee Hudgin) for 63 years and loving father of Wendy McDonald, Linda Thaler, Cheryl Moher and David Fairman. He was the father-in-law of the late Peter McDonald, Bill Thaler, late Thomas Moher and the late Paula Fairman (nee Connolly).

Bruce is predeceased by his brothers Carl and Hugh. He will be missed by his sister Marie and husband Clare Perigoe and by his brother Ralph and wife Gail Fairman. Uncle Bruce will be fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews. Bruce might be most remembered as a colourful character who loved to stir the pot and had a passion for fashion on the golf course. He brought his zest for life to the sports he loved including baseball, hockey and golf and was extremely proud to be inducted into the Lindsay & District Sports Hall of Fame. He instilled a strong work ethic and nurtured a love of family that will be his lasting legacy. In keeping with Bruce's wishes, cremation has taken place.
