Bruce Anderson Low

December 31, 1919 - September 21, 2015

Burial Date October 2, 2015

Celebration of Life to be held at the Latter-day Saint Chapel at 2990 Quadra Street on Friday October 2nd at 2:00 PM, bishop Niels Nohr officiating.

Bruce A. Low passed away September 21, 2015 in Royal Jubilee Hospital, Victoria, at the age of 95 years.  He will be lovingly remembered by his five children Richard (Wendy) Low and Allan (Katherine) Low of Calgary, Leslie Hudson and Nola Low of Victoria, and Vicki (Dan) Collett of Sandy, Utah. He also leaves 13 grandchildren, Rob, Lisa, Evan, Matthew and Amy Low; Chris and James Hudson; Brian, Sarah and Jane Low; and Rosalyn, Ben and Luke Collett, and 21 great-grandchildren. Bruce was predeceased by his beloved wife Ruth in 2005, and by his grandson Sterling Low and great-granddaughter Beatrice Low.

Bruce was born in Cardston, Alberta and began life as an 18-year old schoolteacher in rural one-room schools there in 1938. He joined the RCAF in 1941 just before his marriage to Ruth and served as a pilot and navigation instructor in the CATP to 1945. He became a dentist in 1950 and practiced in Edmonton for 35 years.

Bruce was always active in his LDS Church, and served as President of the Alberta Dental Association and of his Kiwanis club. He enjoyed cattle ranching south of Edmonton and was a gardener and a hunter throughout his life.

Bruce’s family express deep appreciation to Dr. Michael Mawdsley and his assistant Lin who provided skilful and compassionate support for many years.  We also thank the Staff of the Royal Jubilee Hospital on 7 South who made every effort to comfort and reassure our father in his final days. Bruce faithfully believed in a life hereafter and eagerly anticipated reunion there with Ruth.

Bruce will be buried at Royal Oak Cemetery.

Friends and acquaintances are invited to a Memorial Service and Celebration of Life to be held at the Latter-day Saint Chapel at 2990 Quadra Street on Friday October 2nd at 2:00 PM, bishop Niels Nohr officiating. A reception and luncheon will follow.

“Home is the sailor, home from the sea, And the hunter, home from the hill.”
