Bruce Edward Leyden
It is with great sadness that we announce that Bruce passed away suddenly of heart failure due to complications of C.O.P.D. He leaves to grieve, his wife Elsie, son Bradley, daughter Melanie and his siblings Norma, Denis, Margaret, Lloyd and their families. He will be sadly missed by his granddaughters, nieces, nephews, cousins and the many friends that were such a large part of his life.
Bruce was very personable with everyone and loved to tell a joke or two. Bruce was always up for a party or family gathering, loved to dance and always available for a “ chat “. He was a “Jack of all Trades” and helped many family members, friends and neighbors with his talents. His mother always said that Bruce could do anything. Born in Edson, raised in Entwistle and lived nearly 50 years in Edmonton, he was always a proud Albertan.

Elsie, and Bruce’s entire family. Bruce will always have a special place in my memories. We spent a lot of time together as small children, teenagers and young adults. To my parents Gordon and Marge Campbell he was also very special, they loved him like their own. He had a heart of gold and was always a joy to spend time with. We loved Bruce and send our love to all his family.
So sorry to hear of Bruce’s passing. We had good times, good company and many laughs curling in Entwistle. Bruce will be missed.
Our deepest condolences to the Leyden Family. Bruce will be missed.
Ted and I are so very, very sorry for your great loss of your beloved Bruce. May the wonderful memories of the love you shared with Bruce sustain and comfort you. Because of our own health issues, we are so sad to not be able to be with you at Bruce’s Celebration of Life. Just know that we are there in spirit. You are in our thoughts and prayers and pray that God will ease your sorrow and give you peace.
Much Love, Cousin Sylvia and Ted Bryenton
