Support the family of Bruce Thomlinson

*Please note: there have been two pages created to help the Thomlinson family: this page, as well as “Bruce Thomlinson Memorial” by Janet Davenport.  Please feel free to donate to whichever page, as both funds will go directly towards helping this family*


Bruce Philip Thomlinson passed away suddenly on Friday January 11th, 2019 in the tragic OC Transpo bus crash in Ottawa, at the age of 56. 

Beloved husband of Elaine.  Cherished father of Braydon and Ryan.  Loving son of John and Ruth Anne and loved brother of Brian (Tami), Lee Anne (Mark), Eric (Kim).  Dear son-in-law of Morris and Blanche and brother-in-law to Steven. 

Bruce will be fondly remembered for his passion for life, his personality and great sense of humour.

Bruce worked for the federal government of Canada at the CBSA, and will be greatly missed by his colleagues.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to either of the go-fund-me pages to help support his wife and two sons, of whom he was so proud.

Thank you very much for your support, it  truly is appreciated.
