Predeceased by his parents, Gerhard J. and Olga (Schellenberg) Friesen; his siblings Oscar, Marie and Richard. Survived by his wife Helga (Meyer), his sister Sara Cosentino, and his brother Gerhard and sister-in-law Kathie, and many nieces and nephews. Bruno was a graduate (B.A., M.A., M.

He was an avid hunter and a long-serving volunteer at the Canadian War Museum. Cremation has taken place. In keeping with Bruno's wishes, there will be no memorial service.
