With great sadness we announce the passing of our loved one Bruce.

Bruce was predeceased by his parents Clyde and Jessie Hunt and his sister and brother-in-law Donna and Frank Byrne.

Left to mourn him are his Regina family - life partner Shelly Brown; his step daughters Tracey (Dean) and Lori; his grandchildren Shayanne (Denny), Alexandria (Mike), Kelsi (Jordan), Steven (Tana), Jestin and Jared (Mackenzie). Last but not least are his great-grandchildren who will greatly miss their ‘poppa’; Alexander, Connor, Kaelis, Bentley, Mekhi, Ilah, Rylan, Grayson, Oaklynn, Theo and Isabel.

Also left to mourn his passing are his Newfoundland family - siblings Rosalind (Gord) Kelly, Linda (Alonzo) Carroll, Carol (Walter) Butler, Clyde (Ray) Hunt, Ruby (Antonio) Byrne, Paul (Diane) Hunt, Kathy (Roger) Parsons and Sherry Hunt.

Bruce’s greatest pleasures in later life were visiting the Union Hall, spending time with his great-grandchildren and camping at the “Little House on the Prairie”.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at Regina Funeral Home in the Reception Room, 4001 East Victoria Avenue, Regina, SK. All those who wish to say good bye to “The Newfie” are welcome to attend.
