Fond memories of childhood adventures with Uncle Bruce and Kym, spending time together visiting South Australia coastal towns. Much loved Uncle. With deepest sympathies for Kym, Julie and Leilani, Pam and the broader family.

You were a wonderful uncle to me and my brothers and sister. You will always remain in my thoughts.

Sharyn Coles (Bain) -

So sorry for your loss. Uncle Bruce (as we called him) was a big part of our lives growing up in the early days. Such a good mate of our dad Bob. Bruce was also my godfather. I saw him a few years ago when I dropped in a card from Shirley Bain (my mum). Rest in Peace. Sincerely condolences to you Kym, Julie and Leilani. xx
