Obituary of Bruce
Edmund Halpin/Letter to our Dad
On January 4, 2019 our sweet, kind hearted Dad passed away
peacefully surrounded by his children. He made his living in the Paper
Industry, beginning in Pine Falls, Man. He married Joan Wood in August
1958 and they began a family a year later. In 1964 he moved his family
to Saint John, NB and finished his career with Irving Paper. He was a
charter member of the Men of Fundy Barber Shop Chorus and sang with
them for over 40 years.
Dad loved life, cooking all the time and making his favourite
meals. He loved travelling, nature, hunting and fishing, golfing and
most of all, he loved his family for whom he spent his life providing
and caring. He was blessed with a great sense of humour that he
managed to pass on to his children. We are forever grateful for that
gift. Dad was a compassionate man with a strong moral compass and
educated all of us in the necessity of sparing time and resources for
those less fortunate.
If there is an afterlife, Dad may be gardening, duck hunting,
or paddling a canoe with his parents and his older brother Ross
somewhere in the wilds of Manitoba. Most probably he will be sitting
patiently waiting for his girl, Joan, the love of his life for over 60
years.
Dad, we will miss your presence at family gatherings the
most. Our houses will not be the same without your (mostly) funny
jokes and your laughter filling the air. As sad as this time is for
us, there is also a lot of love and laughter as we sit around and
reminisce about you. We couldn’t have asked to share our
lives with a better person. The memories we have of you are strong and
will never be erased. We will pass them down to your great
grandchildren that never had the chance to know you. Thank you for
being our Dad.
The grandchildren lost a very good man in Grampa Bruce. He
was a very happy and loving man who would do anything for his family
and lived a good life in his home on the Kingston Peninsula. Grampa
Bruce did most things he wanted in life and lived without regret. He
is survived by his wife Joan, his son Scott (Janet), and their
children: Kimberley (Darren), daughters Brenna and Keira, Amanda
(Scott), daughter Madison, and Alexander; daughter Jolene (Jean), and
their children: Erik, Rachel, Pierre Olivia, Elise; daughter Kristen,
and her children: Jackie (Kyle) and Whitney (Chris); son William
(Angela), and their children, Lily and Harry; daughter Leah, and her
children, Matthew, Grace and Samuel. Bruce is also survived by many
nieces and nephews.
Resting at Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home, 152
Pettingill Road, Quispamsis, (849-2119) with visiting on Wednesday,
January 9, 2019 from 2-4 and 6-8 PM. A celebration of Bruce’s life
will take place on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at 11:00 AM from
Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home Chapel. For those who wish,
remembrances in memory of Bruce may be made to any children’s charity
of one’s choice.

Sympathies message

  1. Very sad to learn of the death of a childhood friend. I was born in Pine Falls in 1933 and the Halpins lived across the street from my family. My mother and his mother Clara were best friends. My family, because of World War Ii. moved to Texas in l942 so my father could help start a new
    paper mill in Lufkin, Texas. I still have happy memories of those days, including brother Ross’s singing. Best wishes to the family, Dwain Manske
