Also survived by his sister Nancy Hergott of British Columbia, nephews Conrad and Simon, cousin Alan Grant (Gloria) and their family. Lovingly remembered by mother-in law Barbara McCulley, sister-in-law Pam McCulley-Bookham (John) of Fort St. John, B.C., niece Dana and nephew Micah and their families. Bruce leaves behind many family and friends. Predeceased by his parents Bruce and Doris (Malleau), infant brother Paul, and father-in-law C.W. (Chuck) McCulley.
Bruce was born in Toronto, raised in Guelph and spent his younger years riding dirt bikes with his best buddy Rick Burns (Pat) and his life long friends. Bruce moved to London in 1979 to attend Fanshawe College. It was there that he later began a career in co-operative education which lasted 25 years. After retirement from Fanshawe, Bruce realized his dream of opening an art gallery. He opened Grant Gallery in Lucan in 2007 and was a familiar face on Main Street for 9 years. Bruce was an avid fly fisherman and master fly tyer. He also enjoyed reading, cooking, and gardening. Anyone that had the pleasure of knowing him will know that he always had a smile, a joke, or a friendly ‘hello’ to share.
A Memorial Visitation will be held at the Haskett Funeral Home, 223 Main Street, Lucan on Monday, September 11, 2017, from 2-4 and 7-9 PM. Cremation has taken place.
Donations to the London Humane Society, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or the Canadian Mental Health Association would be appreciated by the family.
