Obituary for Bruce Lloyd Proudfoot

Bruce Lloyd Proudfoot

April 2,1946- February 20,2024

Born in Ontario, he was a son to the late Arthur George and Shirley Bernice Proudfoot. Throughout his life Bruce worked diligently for the betterment of others, holding positions of respect and authority. This sense of being the best man that he could carried on into his personal life as well. Bruce was somewhat of a perfectionist being a man of many interests. He was a talented and gifted musician with a lifelong appreciation of Country Music with ties to the Tottenham Blue Grass Music Festival, a Drum Major, a lover of boats and all things nautical, a Mason, raised up in Tottenham Lodge # 467 and a Brother in Hiram #12 Lodge Yarmouth Nova Scotia, a Noble of Philae Shrine Halifax Nova Scotia, a Veteran and a proud member of the Wedgeport Legion Branch 155, just to mention a few. He was never too busy to step up to the plate to assist in raising money for Shrines Sick Childrens hospitals, to assist in offering a ride to appointments for those in the community that needed one, to run an errand or to visit those that just need a friendly soul to comfort them in their hour of need or if they were lonely and need a non-biased ear to listen. Even in passing he continued to give donating his remains to the Dalhousie Medical School, for the furtherance of Medical Science. Bruce was always a welcome addition to our tables and around our campfires and shall be sorely missed by those of us that were fortunate to call him our brother and friend. He is survived by his daughter, Alexandria; brothers, Paul (Anne) and Michael (Susan); sister-in-law , Pat . Aside from his parents he was predeceased by brother, Derrick.

A service shall be held in his honor at Sweeny's Funeral Home in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on Monday 4th March at 7.00pm.
