Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Bruce’s Life will take place on Sunday, May 12, 2024 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Binbrook Fair Grounds (under the grandstand), located at 2600 Regional Road #56, Binbrook, ON. Serenity Burial & Cremation Services Inc. has been entrusted with the arrangements.
