Bruce Wright "The Eagle" mcarthur April 28, 1946 - November 3, 2012 Bruce had a brain aneurysm and left us November 3rd. Many people on Bowen Island and in Vancouver will miss this real life character, his 'eccentricities' and his quick wit. Especially missing him are his sisters Dannie and Suzie (Mark),

his daughter Alex (Brad), his niece Kate Naphtali, his aunt Barb Wright and his

cousins Sandy (Louise), Bill, Laura and Helen (Rick) Wright. Born to Herb and Helen McArthur, Bruce's escapades growing up, as "the Eagle" in Vancouver, were the stuff of legends. He spent most of his adult life on Bowen Island entertaining his longstanding friends with his unique gift of storytelling and entertaining himself with his interests in writing and painting. He was an unforgettable character and loved by many. A celebration of his life will take place and will be announced at

a later date.
