WARD, Bruce F.G.
At the Toronto Western Hospital on August 20th, 2005, loving husband of Eleanor (STRANG.) Proud father of David (Katie TRUSLER) of Toronto and Susan (Tim MATSELL) of Banff. Doting "Poppa" to Connor, Scottie, and Evan WARD who gave him much joy. Caring brother of Barbara SEYMOUR of St. Catharines and admired Uncle to her children Carolyn, Ward, Marion, and Rick; Brother-in-Law and dear friend of Dr. William STRANG and his wife Pat of Chattanooga, Tennessee and close Uncle to their sons Mark, Paul, John and Drew. A special brother of Ardith RALPH of Vancouver.
An H.B.A. and M.B.A. graduate of the Richard Ivey School of Business, Bruce enjoyed a very long and successful career as a senior partner with Woods Gordon (now Ernst and Young) as head of their Executive Search Practice and as National Director of Human Resources Consulting. He then joined Heidrick and Struggles Inc., a top tier international search firm, as Partner and an Elected Director. Considered by many to be the "Dean of Recruiters", Bruce served as a mentor to many in that discipline.
Bruce was a devoted sports fan -- whether as a participant or spectator. A Mustang alumnus in Football and Wrestling, Bruce loved to play golf at the London Hunt and Country Club, and play doubles tennis with "Gutsy" at the Badminton and Racquet Club. His true passion, however, was skiing with Friends and family at Devil's Glen Ski Club in Collingwood.
Memorial visitation will be held on Tuesday, August 23, 2005 at Fawcett Funeral Homes -- Collingwood Chapel, 82 Pine Street, from 2-4 and 7-9 in the evening. A Celebration of Bruce's life will take place on Wednesday, August 24, 2005 at All Saints' Anglican Church, 32 Elgin Street, at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made payable to Smart Risk or the Charity of the Donor's choice. Friends may also leave messages for the family by visiting www.fawcettfuneralhomes.com.
Although Bruce will be profoundly missed by all who loved him, we take comfort in the fact that he will be enjoying the odd martini with Jimmy Fisher and playing golf on the fairways above.
