10 February 1966 to 5 June 2018


Bruce attended Churston Grammar School and became a Marine Engineer. Sadly, however, whilst working in France, he stopped to help at the scene of a road accident and was badly injured by a passing car.

He thankfully survived and with his mother Maggie, they were the first, of eight members, to join the newly formed ACE charity in Brixham in 1989.

Despite suffering brain injuries, a paralysed arm and being in a wheelchair, Bruce was always cheerful and a very popular member of ACE.

He enjoyed pottery and Sports Mobility. He skilfully created items from clay and he loved competing in indoor games. Bruce and mum were always on opposite sides where they enjoyed each other’s ups and downs. There was a very close bond between them.

Bruce is deeply missed by us all. 

Bruce and mum Maggi
