Bruce Cheek

With heartfelt sadness, the family of Bruce Cheek announces that he passed away peacefully at the age of 65 on September 6th, 2016.

Bruce was a quiet, gentle man, and a skilled carpenter, who had a great appreciation of the outdoors. His passions were riding horses in the mountains, going on adventures with his wife and spending time with those close to him. He was kind, supportive and honest. His caring nature and infectious smile made everyone around him feel loved.

Born in Chilliwack, B.C., he is predeceased by his parents: Gordon and Doreen Cheek. He is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Lorraine; daughters: Stacey (Jarrod), Jennifer (Ben), and Jody (Jean); grandchildren: Lucas and Owen. He will be sadly missed by his siblings: Brent, Jeff (Pat), Lorie (Mike); in-laws: Sylvia (Andy), and David; and many extended family and friends.

The family would like to thank Dr. La Bossiere and staff, the Community Care Team, and the wonderful nurses at Deni House.

A celebration of life will be held at the Chimney Lake Fire Hall, 2630 Chimney Lake Rd., on September 24th at

1:00 pm.

Those wishing to honour Bruce’s memory can do so by making a donation to the B.C. Cancer Foundation.
