OGILVIE – Robert “Bruce”

April 9, 1958 – September 3, 2010

Bruce Ogilvie of Calgary passed away peacefully on Friday, September 3, 2010 surrounded by his family, at the age of 52.

Jumping out of airplanes, exploring ship wrecks, cooking and the stock market were some of his many passions. Bruce was a valued member of the Ogilvie Printing Ltd. clan where he was an offset pressman for 32 years. He was a very kind and giving person and will be missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his mother Velma, brothers Craig (Cathy) & Brian (Libby) and sister Kathy (John) Canu, and nieces & nephews.

Bruce was predeceased by his brother Scott and father Wally Ogilvie.

An Open House celebrating Bruce’s life will be held on Saturday, September 11, 2010 at the Coast Plaza Hotel, Plaza 5, 1316 – 33 Street NE, Calgary from 2 pm – 4 pm. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Sarcee Hospice, 3405 29 Street SW Calgary, Alberta T3E 2L3. Special thanks to all his neighbours and Christy – you were his “Angels” and to the staff at Sarcee Hospice for their care and compassion.

In living memory of Bruce Ogilvie, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Eastside Memorial Chapel, 5388 MEMORIAL DRIVE N.E. Telephone: (403) 248-8585.
