August 4, 1943 – April 13, 2022
Bruce was a beloved family man who lived for his wife Linda and was fiercely proud of his three daughters Shannon, Tara and Eden. His favorite activities included spending time with his six grandkids, reading the newspapers over countless cups of coffee and enjoying a craft beer on the back deck surrounded by friends and family. He was an avid walker, whether it be hiking his favourite trails around the Kanata Beaverpond, exploring the world travelling with Linda and friends, or proudly carrying his own clubs while walking all 18 holes on the golf course. He will be remembered for his unassuming kindness, balanced by his witty comments and moments of silliness. He was a constant source of love and support to his family. We will remember him for patiently coaching his daughters’ childhood sports, our family biking trips down to the Ottawa ByWard Market and jiving our hearts out on the dance/kitchen floor. He will live on in these memories and the countless moments we are grateful to have had with him.
Son of Lester Story (deceased) and Sarah Story (Hammell) (deceased). Beloved husband of Linda Story (Liberty). Dear father to Shannon Story (Steve Petrie), Tara Story (Clayton Dignard) and Eden Story (Paul Marshall).
