Bruce Tarnowski was born to Catherine and Peter Tarnowski in Camrose Alberta on March 7, 1947. He passed away peacefully on September 8, 2019 at the University of Alberta Hospital. He was 72 years old.

Bruce was fortunate to grow up with his five brothers and four sisters. Bruce married Helene (Theroux) on April 17, 1971, and they were blessed with their two children, Corey and Barbara. They left Edmonton and moved to Calgary in 1989. Bruce was a hard working man with a great sense of humor. His love of sports, particularly the Edmonton Oilers, was second to none. Bruce, Helene and Barbara moved back to Edmonton in 2016. Up until the Lord and Savior called him softly home, Bruce faced many challenges with his health. We hope you remember his beautiful smile, his kind heart, and his laughter.

Bruce leaves to mourn his wife Helene Tarnowski; son Corey (Aimee) Tarnowski; grandchildren: Emily and Alexander Tarnowski; siblings: Grant (Roseanne) Tarnowski, Larry (Colleen) Tarnowski, Randy (Gail) Tarnowski, Janice Volk, Donna Niehaus, Linda (Terry) Turta, and Carol McClain as well as many nieces and nephews.

Bruce was predeceased by: mother Catherine Tarnowski, father Peter Tarnowski, daughter Barbara Tarnowski, and brothers Vern Tarnowski and Darryl Tarnowski

We wish to thank everyone for comfort, support and
acts of kindness to Bruce at the University of
Alberta Hospital since March 7, 2019.

  3. I am so sorry to here of Bruce’s passing. I always remembered him as a kind and gentle fellow student at St. Mary’s. He was just such a nice guy. His off-beat humor always had me guessing about what he really meant. I think I was just too slow to get “it” immediately. My sincere condolences to his family who feel this emptiness.

  4. I offer you my sincere sympathy and prayers for the repose of Bruce. May he now rest in the loving arms of our merciful God.
    Will be present will you in thought and prayers.

  5. Bruce was my cousin, Helen’s husband and i with to offer my condolences to his family.

    Helen; I’m so sorry for your losses of both Bruce and Barbara. I remember when you and Bruce first met and what a great guy I always thought he was.

    My prayers are with you, Corey, and his family.
    Love, Pauline
