Bruce Gannon

November 17, 1955 — March 13, 2024

A brilliant light has been extinguished at the early age of 68 years.

Gilmour Patrick Bruce Gannon leaves behind his loving and adoring partner Laurie Wichers-Schreur. He was the cherished dad to Karlyn (Jenn Allard), Jessica (Charlie Graham), Melissa (Steve Horvath) and Kimberly (Wes Stakes). He also proudly welcomed as his own Rebecca (Alex Gravelle), Gerritt Wichers-Schreur and Craig Grant (Rhea). As a wide and sprawling family with loving siblings and their partners, many grandchildren were recognized. Connor Graham Gannon, Kate and Gracin Link-Horvath, Jack Gravelle, and Emmett, Everly, and Leo Grant will all be missing out on a lot of chocolate, rockets, and special times. He was predeceased by his parents Bertha (Mahoney) Gilmour Gannon and his sister Alva Rose.  He will be greatly missed by his siblings Hazel (Hugh Sholea), Sheila (Mark Zelmer), and Brent (John Legree).  He took great pride in what he was able to provide for his family and the families of hundreds of others that he worked with and employed over more than 35 years, in several businesses.

Bruce lived his life to coach, advise and help others.  His arms and door were always open and for that he leaves an enormous family to grieve.

Although Bruce had no wish for a service, he lived a large life that touched many and if you were one of those people we invite you to celebrate his life with us on Thursday, March 21, 2024 at the Rideau Curling Club, 715 Cooper St., Ottawa from 1 to 4 p.m. Words of remembrance will be shared at 3 P.M.
