Dear Sharon, Michael, Bethia, Daniel, Lucille, Peter, Gary, Geoffrey and all your mates, Sam, Jacob, Nolan, and the entire extended family, it is with profound sadness that I'm sending you our condolences on the huge loss of Bruce, kind, caring, gentle giant, precious friend to me, Bruce. Having grown up so close to Sharon and the family, Bruce and Sharon's 1st date at my Sweet Sixteen, over 54 years of friendship and a bond that cannot be expressed, it is terribly sad for the loss of your soulmate, best Dad ever, best grandfather, son, brother, and friend. Sharon when you came to see Jacqui numerous times in the hospital, before we lost her, you had your unique way of making her feel safe and good, for that I have profound gratitude as well. We know the wonderful memories you all shared with Bruce will live on in your hearts and minds every day, cherish them and always remember the good times. He will be part of you and the grandchildren forever. We know that the closeness of your family being there for one and other always, will give you comfort at this time. Lawrence, Suzanne, Robbie and Raquel and their families join me in wishing you all no further sorrow. We love you all deeply and pray for your continued strength and positivity to honor Bruce, I know, only too well, that's what he'd want for his loving family. Caryl xoxo

People think the word mensch has been around forever, that's not the case, the word was only "invented" sometime after Bruce Gates was born. There is no other way to describe Bruce. To know Bruce was to know a man who was extremely private, a man that would rather listen than speak, and when he did speak, it was maybe only afew words and if you were very lucky, afew sentences, but those few words or sentences were very powerful, as he spoke about his wife and later on his growing family over a pizza or a burger or of course a MEDIUM smoked meat sandwich at Deli Boys at 1 or 2am on a hot summers night. I met Bruce playing softball at Kirwan Park. We were only on the same team twice over the 10 plus years i played but each and every time I would see him over those 10 years he would not only ask how I was doing, but how my mother, whom he remembered was very sick over one of the summers we did play together was doing. Im not even sure he knew my name but I was honored to be one of the guys he took the time to call "CHIEF". He was THAT guy. He never forgot what you told him, especially if it involved family. He truly cared about others in a way very few people do. Unfortunately, like alot of people do as time goes on, we lost touch as we got older and life took over and responsibilities grew and so on. Fast forward many many years, to maybe about 6 or 8 weeks ago and I found myself staring at this big guy with this big beard sitting in what looked like the smallest seat in the stands of the DDO arena. Like a kid in a toy store, with a tilted head, I excitedly, almost screaming "Bruce!! Is that you??!!" He looked up slowly, as if I had whispered, and said "hey chief how are you, and how's your mother doing" I swear the man was put on this planet to make everyone else in the room feel like the most important person on earth. We talked for maybe 10 minutes, this time instead of our softball games it was about our grandchildrens hockey, he spoke so proudly about his grandson who was there trying out for a very high level team but never in a bragging tone, even telling me about his other grandchildren in between and how he enjoyed spending time at their activities and swimming with his newest one. Always humble throughout the conversation, even as i was asking questions to try and get him more excited, as most other grandparents would get while speaking about trying out for a AAA team. But that was Bruce, so passionately proud yet even more humble. It was always family first second and third for Bruce, all the while making everyone in between feel wanted and special. We left off by wishing each other the best and he told me that if his grandson made it through this round of tryouts, he'd be back at the end of the summer again for more. I think in that moment I was hoping more than Bruce, that that would be the case and I'd be lucky enough again to bump into him at the arena and this time have more time to talk, more time for me to listen to his few yet powerful words, more time for him to make ME feel special. Unfortunately, it was with tremendous sadness that I learned of his passing early this morning. I was at a loss for words, my heart broke immediately thinking of his family, his wife, his children and especially his grandchildren, as they didn't get spoiled with the time they deserved to learn what anyone who knew Bruce had already learned, that he was kindest most gentle giant, that HE was the original mensch! I know he's already up there in heaven, telling anyone who's lucky enough to be with him, about who makes the best smoked meat and talking about his family and how special they all are to him. Bruce, I hope your grandson made it through and will be at arena again this summer, I would like very much to tell him what he forsure already knows, and that is what a wonderful human being his late grandfather was, a true gentleman in every sense of the word. Rest easy old friend.

He was always involved with sports and enjoying watching his kids playing. The condolences are right, he was a gentle giant with a beautiful smile. Please accept our sincere condolences.

Gentle, wise, blunt and humble. That is the Bruce I knew. My extreme condolences to Sharon and the entire family. I was shocked and dishevelled to hear of Bruce's passing. I knew Bruce in my teenage years, and more specifically the past 15 or so. Warm, strong and expressive, his words were always taken seriously by me. When he had the time to listen, he gave profound life advise and concise suggestions. I admired his love of family who surrounded him. Bruce commanded respect, and I will very much miss knowing he was accessible most of the time. The depth of the void he left could only be felt by Sharon and the Gates family to the full extent. A deep voice leaves a deep hole for all his loved ones. I'll miss him, and am deeply saddened for you all. Rest, with loving memories of you Bruce.

I can only imagine the thousands of laughs through the years. .Sharon Michael Daniel and Bethia , I am certain that you have a million beautiful memories through the years. I prey that all those beautiful memories wrap you all in loving warmth through this heart wrenching time and beyond. You all brought so much joy and blessings to Bruce through the years. Gary, you were always there for your big brother and Bruce often told me how much he appreciated you. Bruce oh so loved being with his grandchildren, telling me how they made him so happy. Even saying good night on the phone would bring him such joy. Bruce also told me that he was thankful to Mom and Dad for all the support throughout the years. Sharon your love and kindness to and for Bruce was always crystal clear to see. A great example for us all. True love. Bruce , I am certain that you are now in heaven. No more pain or discomfort. You are surrounded by your loving Bessie, Pop, Faye, and Norman. Unti we meet again. You could not possibly be more loved and appreciated God bless you Bruce You are so very loved and missed

Sharon, Mike, Dan, Thi & and the entire family, Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss. Bruce was an incredible man and we are so blessed to have had the chance to know him through the years. He was always there for us without ever having to ask-- I will forever be grateful for his Saturday morning lifts so we can get our favourite players' autographs and his larger-than-life presence supporting us at our baseball & hockey games. As a close friend of Daniel's we saw first-hand the incredible father & son relationship they had. You have been blessed to have a father that loves you so much and he to have had a family that loves him. Bruce, I promise we will never ever forget you and we will continue to make you proud, together, through kindness & love. May you rest peacefully, watching over us and all your favourite games, comfortably from above. Love always & forever, Dibi & Haley
