Arne (Hans) Bruheim

(Hans) Arne Bruheim October 25, 1957 - November 14, 2012 Born - Lion's Gate Hospital; Passed Away - Royken, Norway

After growing up in West Van and graduating from Hillside Secondary, Arne lost his heart to his ancestral home, Norway.

In Norway, Arne is survived by his love and wife Ann-Kathrin, much loved son, Marius and step-sons Alexander and Christian, and extended family. In Canada, he is missed terribly by mother Kay, brother Eric (Lynda), sisters Kirsten (Robert), Solveig (Robert), Freya (Kim), Ingrid (Howard), Sonja (Dale), Marie (Steve) and Sylvia (Ward), and large extended family. Arne was predeceased by his father Hans, and beloved daughter, Michelle.

Our gratitude to angels Sonja and Sylvia, for conveying our love from Canada to Norway, bringing joy and comfort to his last months. And to the kind and caring staff at Braaset Hospital.

Thanks so much to Arne's forever friends and loved ones, including those in the Canadian Club, who helped through good times and hard times and gave him community away from home.

Words can't express our gratitude to Arne, for showing us how to live honestly and fully, even in the face of adversity.
