Bruce Mitchell

Mitchell, Bruce (brother, uncle)

Bruce passed away in Perth hospital on Saturday, January 9th, 2021 at the age of 68 years.  He was predeceased by his parents Stanley and Joan Mitchell and brother Brian Mitchell.  Bruce was the loved brother of his siblings Rodney (Heidi Tonn) Mitchell and Robyn (Gary) McTavish.  He will be missed by his nieces Victoria Mitchell (Steve), Heather McTavish (David), Kathleen McTavish (Shayne) and nephew  William McTavish (Allyce).

He cared deeply for his nieces and nephew. Bruce made a wicked rhubarb pie that many of us enjoyed during big family suppers. Bruce loved observing and documenting all forms of nature. He was a taxi owner/operator for years in West end Ottawa and would spend his waiting time in various places along the greenbelt in order to watch and video the creatures that lived there and would share stories with his fares.
