January 27, 1974 - June 1, 2020
It is with heavy hearts we mourn the passing of Bruce Stephen Mitchell on June 1, 2020. Bruce will be deeply missed by his parents, Doug and Sandy, his sister Mary (Lars), his brother Peter (Emma), as well as aunts, uncles, and cousins across the country.
Bruce was an active member of the downtown Edmonton community. He had a great sense of humour that was reflected in his cartoons and his quirky political paintings. To know Bruce was to know how much he loved a good long talk about philosophy and politics over a pot of coffee. Bruce was an active volunteer in the art program of the Mustard Seed where he shared his enthusiasm with fellow members. In addition, he was an involved member of the Salvation Army Church where he came to peace with God within his last years. He struggled with addiction for the better part of his life, but just could not win this battle. Bruce has found peace at last.
A public memorial will be announced at a later date when family and friends can once again gather to celebrate Bruce’s life.
Donations can be made in Bruce’s memory to the Edmonton Mustard Seed and if you so wish, directed to the Edmonton Mustard Seed Art Program, the Salvation Army, or the Alberta Street News, a free newspaper, solely supported by donations and so vital in helping and supporting Edmonton’s inner-city community by keeping them informed.
