Anderson, Bruce Thomas
(15 Aug 46 – 22 Jun 19)
On Saturday, the 22nd of June 2019, Bruce Anderson passed away peacefully at the Ottawa General Hospital after a long and stoic fight with kidney disease. He was born on the 15th of August 1946 in Lethbridge, AB to William and Helen (née Patterson) Anderson (sisters: Judy [d], Janet and Jane). He received his Master of Business Administration from Stanford University in 1972, graduating with distinction. He worked principally as a civil servant (Canada Post and Royal Canadian Mint), and entrepreneur. Bruce is survived by his son Casey Anderson (Stacey Begg). Bruce was an intelligent, authentic and passionate man, who committed himself wholeheartedly to whatever struck his interest. Proudly, he was the Editor of The Gauntlet (University of Calgary’s newspaper) and won the Fraser Institute of Canada Prize in 1992 for his research into the lifecycle of coins, seeking to achieve economies for the government. He loved soccer, refereeing throughout the Ottawa Valley for over ten years, and volunteering his time as a coach and executive member of the Almonte Soccer Club. He adored the theatre, performing under the stage name “G.A. Bain” in a variety of companies in both Almonte and Ottawa, though never fully realizing his life’s ambition of playing “Matt” in Talley’s Folly. He will always be remembered for his stories, wit and generosity. He will live on in the memories of those who cherished his inimitable style, joie de vivre and hunger to “always leave them laughing”. Bruce longed to return to nature, and his ashes will be spread on camping trips in Gatineau and Alberta this summer. Those wishing to remember Bruce are requested to donate in his name to the Ottawa Gladstone Theatre or Almonte General Hospital.

Very sad to learn this news. As a parent and player I certainly benefitted from Bruce's extreme dedication and passion for the game of soccer. We may not have always agreed with his calls, but we knew his intention was to be a fair minded referee, and he served to model that to many budding referees in the area, including my own sons. Our sincere condolences to Bruce's family and especially Casey.

The Almonte soccer club would like send it’s deepest condolences to Bruce’s family. Bruce was always a keen supporter of the Almonte Soccer Club. His dedication to the game was immense. He was a mentor, a coach and at one time a board member. The club will miss seeing him at the field.
