  13. Steven & Susan Purcell dit :

    We were very sad to hear of Bruce’s passing. We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to Stephen, Christina, Andrew and their extended family. Bruce was always one to laugh the hardest at a joke, and could be counted on to greet you with an honest smile no matter how many years had passed since you had seen him last, and he never forgot your name. Coming from large families with lots of cousins uncles aunts etc. that was quite a feat. As a kid I remember going to the house to get a hair cut from Dale and more often than not we would end up fishing down at the lake with Bruce providing the fishing rods and even bait as we wouldn’t have thought to bring any of those things. Then we would end up staying for supper at his insistence. I don’t think we have known many people that were as genuine as Bruce, he will truly be missed by friends and family alike.

  14. Tanya, Victoria and Katelyn Fox dit :

    Our deepest sympathies to the Downing family. He was such a kind and wonderful man.

  18. Andrea Burns dit :

    Deepest Sympathy to the Downing Family
    He was a giant of a man, with that trademark Downing sense of humour, warmth, kindness, and generosity. I don’t know anyone who didn’t think the world of him. When I was in Cuba a few years ago, I met the owner of Marathon Drilling who knew Bruce (Tommy) through business. He spoke so highly of Downing Drilling, you’d never know he was the competitor.

    May you all find peace and comfort in the memories shared that never die.
