Bruce Wayne Winship, 68, passed away peacefully at Yarmouth Regional Hospital on July 24, 2020 with his beloved companion, Carolyn “Kay” Wilson, by his side.

He is survived by brothers, Charles and Glen, many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Donations in memory may be made to the Friends of Gilles Boudreau Cancer Help Fund, or the Tri-County V.O.N.

Dear Kay, Charles & Susan, Glen, and all your Families,

We were very saddened to learn of Bruce’s passing. He was an incredibly strong man to fight the battle that he did and survive well beyond the prediction that he received at the beginning of his diagnosis. That was Classic Bruce. From his childhood , Bruce had a determination that kept him strong through many adversities. When you entered into his life, Kay, he became that much stronger and full of joy - we all knew that. We also know that Bruce’s departure has left a huge hole in your life. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers as you go through this very difficult time of loss and recovery.

With our sincere sympathy,

Pat & John

To Kay, Charles and Susan, Glen, and all of your families, we were so sorry to hear that Bruce had passed away. We know that he had been sick for some time and that he put up such a va!liant fight. Bruce always had a few stories to tell when we visited. It is never easy to say good bye to someone you love. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time of loss. With our love and deepest sympathy.
Robert and Gloria

It was a shock to hear the news of Bruce's passing. Condolences to your family on the passing of your brother. He spent a lot of time at my mother and fathers home during which he and I had the opportunity to discuss many things. He will be missed.
