As a young man, Bruce spent many wonderful summers on his uncle's farm near Moorefield. When Bruce was 14 he met Mary on the Robb farm where they both were working. At age 17 he earned the Queen's Scout award. In 1960 he married and started his fuel oil business. Later, he and Dave Jones started a business partnership - Boucher & Jones. They won awards of excellence. Bruce had a 55 year career and retired in June 2015.
He was hard-working, patient, and dedicated to his family and his community. He was active in: Kinsmen, Rotary (Paul Harris Award), Probus, Church and Investment clubs He planned exciting summer vacations for his family. We remember lots of good times at the chalet in Beaver Valley. The fly-in hunt camp at Mud Lake was a fantastic place to spend a hot August week fishing with his grandchildren. He loved being outdoors hunting and fishing with his buddies at Mud Lake and Elizabeth Bay hunt camp, Manitoulin Island. Bruce lived a life of meaning and purpose - always putting others first.
