May 16, 1953 – August 28, 2017
It is with great sadness that the family of Bruce Collingwood announces his passing on August 28 at the age of 64. Bruce will be forever loved and remembered by his wife Janis, their sons: Evan and Taylor, and Josh and Matt. Also mourning his loss are his brother Brent (Adele), and his sisters Anne and Laurie, his brothers-in-law Jeff (Sandra) and Rob (Lisa) and his mother-in-law Helen. Bruce was predeceased by his parents Margaret and John. He will also be missed by numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends Andy and Bill.
Bruce was a teacher, lawyer, and former Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. He had a bright presence, a sharp wit, and a wonderful sense of humour. He had an infectious laugh that could lighten any room. Bruce was an invaluable advisor to family, colleagues and clients. He had a deep love for conversation, great food, and good wine. He was a devoted husband and father, and regular family gatherings and holiday celebrations will not be the same without him.
Bruce spent the last seven years in Victoria with his wife Janis and their dog Winston practicing law. He had a successful law practice and thoroughly enjoyed finding solutions for his clients. He loved family and friends visiting the island and sharing time with them exploring places near the water. He will be missed by all who knew him and never forgotten. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date this fall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Edmonton Stollery Children's Hospital.
