George Bruce McLellan, BSc’50

December 9, 1926 – March 11, 2018

Bruce had a long and successful career with Alcan, working in Kitimat, Montreal, Australia, Guyana, northern Spain, and Newcastle, UK, before retiring to Alicante, Spain in 1985. He lived an adventurous life, exploring and travelling wherever he lived. If a sign said “Do Not Enter,” Bruce considered it an invitation. He loved working in his Mediterranean terrace garden, building and repairing pottery in his workshop, doing needlework, and giving away numerous hand-knit baby shawls and layettes. He was a great organizer of events and celebrations, keeping his friends and family connected. To his many visitors from home, Bruce introduced the wonders and flavours of Spain, its countryside, and its towns and villages. He leaves to mourn his wife of 50 years, Judy; their children Hedy and George; his first wife Marian and their children Dale, Kim, and Don; 11 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

    It’s with a heavy heart that I found this obit for Bruce. We met online about 20 years ago when he was asking for help to set up a chat program to be able to communicate with his family here in Canada. I helped him out and we kept in touch over the years. My husband and I were finally able to meet Bruce and Judy in 2015 when they were here in Canada visiting family. They visited with us here in our home and we have a lovely time. We usually exchange emails at Christmas and when I did not get a reply this past Christmas …
    We send our belated condolences to the family and to Judy.
