BRUCE JAMES BAILLIE, beloved husband of Karen Baillie of Raymond, AB., passed away peacefully, at the Raymond Health Centre, on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at the age of 68 years.

Bruce is survived by his family, Robbie, Jamie (Tasha), of Moose Jaw, Sask., Scotty (Nicole), of Moose Jaw, Sask., Mark (Michelle) McKellar, of White Court, AB. and Melissa (Mark) Berridge, of Huxley, AB. as well as 15 grandchildren.

Bruce is also survived by his sister Marlene Moore of Moose Jaw, Sask. and niece Stacey (Phillip) Simms of Moose Jaw, Sask. He was predeceased by his parents Ruth and James.

Bruce marched to the beat of his own drum. He loved politics and debates. Bruce started his own band – playing guitar, fiddle and mandolin. His first music adventure was playing with the St. Andrews Boy’s Pipe Band as lead snare drummer. He was a well loved postman, trucker and other jobs at various times. He had a big, generous heart and a great sense of humour. He loved all the animals they adopted throughout the years. Bruce touched many lives and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Bruce lived his life to the fullest. Please join us in a toast in Bruce’s honor.

A Private Family Gathering will be held at a later date.
