BLATCHFORD, Bruce Thomas

April 19, 1925 – November 5, 2012

It is with saddened hearts we announce the passing of Bruce Thomas Blatchford on November 5, 2012, at home, after a brief illness. Bruce is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Marjorie; sons Doug (Millie) of Oliver, John (Elaine) of Surrey and daughter Shirley (Mike) of Vernon. Further to cherish his memory are two grandsons Paul and Jason and one great grandson Jonah. After being born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Bruce met and married the love of his life, Marjorie. It was in 1965 when Bruce moved his family to Vernon where he settled in Coldstream to enjoy the family life. Bruce being a gifted mechanic and handyman could fix just about anything. When Bruce wasn’t tinkering in his garage he could be found fishing or just puttering on projects around the house and yard. There will be no service at the family’s request. In lieu of flowers a donation in memory of Bruce can be made to Canadian Cancer Society – Southern Interior Rotary Lodge (#202, 1835 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, BC V1Y 3H5) Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at
