Bruce Edwin Kent Pyatt was born in Scarborough, Ontario, January 13th, 1937. He was predeceased by his parents, John and Ella Pyatt, and his daughter Brenda Penno. Bruce was raised in Scarborough and in 1965 he met and married Cathryn Wallis and they raised two daughters on Cathy’s family farm near Bayfield, Ontario. The family moved west in 1973 to Calgary for one year and then finally settling in the Blaeberry near Golden B.C.
Bruce will be sadly missed by his loving wife Cathy, his daughter, Barbara McGrath (Marty) and their daughters Jenness and Tiffanie, Brenda’s husband Kurt and sons Jeff (Rhonda), Jerrett, and Jordan. Bruce loved spending time with grandchildren especially at the cabin on the Kinbasket Lake where they enjoyed boating, fishing, swimming and playing with the dogs. Bruce could often be seen polishing, cleaning and painting his boats in anticipation for the summer launch. Another hobby shared by Bruce and Cathy was to collect wood burls and make them into clocks. Bruce passed away suddenly at home of an aortic aneurysm on October 14th, 2009 at the age of 72.
A Memorial Service was held at the Golden Senior’s Centre on Wednesday afternoon, October 21st with family and friends presiding. Bruce’s ashes will be placed next to his daughter Brenda at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Arrangements were in the care of Hindman Bowers Funeral Home, Golden.
