Bruce had a big heart, indeed!
He not only welcomed another daughter to his family with Jen, he welcomed all of us too!
You were like our second Dad Bruce and will truly be missed❤

My thoughts and prayers are with you Sandy and family. I worked a number of years with Sandy at MUMC. May he rest in peace.
My sincerest condolences to Sandy, her children, grandchildren and all of the family. I worked with Sandy at MUMC many years ago. My heart goes out to you at this time of sorrow.
My sincere condolences to Mrs. McQueen, Jay, Shannon and your family.
I have fond memories of Bruce as my baseball coach when I was a kid.
His big laugh and big voice could be heard from anywhere in the ballpark. He helped teach and mentor me and others to be ballplayers but more importantly, he taught us teamwork, goal-setting and respect. Many of what I learned from Bruce back then, has translated to how I live my life today. I am certain other people he has coached and mentored would say the same.
Even though many years have gone by since then, it is those fond memories of Bruce’s kindness and compassion that I will keep forever.
Rest easy Bruce.
Barb and I are so sorry to hear about Bruce’s passing. We were neighbors for many yrs.
We enjoyed chatting over the fence. He will be missed
My sincerest condolences to the McQueen family. Bruce and the rest of the McQueen family have been a delightful addition to my life. I have had privilege to witness and experience his kindness, humor and devotion to family and friends.
Until we meet again Bruce
Rest in peace Bruce
I’m so sorry Sandy. My condolences to you and your family.
Dear Sandy, Jay, Shannon and family
Our sincere condolences. Bruce will be so missed. At all our family parties, Bruce was there with a smile, interested in how everyone was doing. Pool parties and family functions will be fond memories.
Sending our love, Cathie & Peter
Dear Jay, Condolences from Steve Redmond and family. I played football with your dad with The Hamilton Hurricanes. A wonderful man.
I had the great pleasure to be teammates with Bruce on the 1972 National Championship Hamilton Hurricane football team. A feat that has never been repeated. And his lovely wife Sandy was a Hurricane cheerleader that year so it was wonderful they eventually married & stayed together for so many years. Bruce was one of the greatest pulling guards in the league. I guarantee no linebacker wanted to see him coming around the corner! He was a great player and an even greater person to know. Always smiling. Gone but never forgotten by all of his former teammates.
Dear Sandy, Jay, Shannon and family: I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Bruce. May you all find comfort in the memories of the joy all of you shared with him. My condolences to you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Judy Sparks
Shannon,Jamie and Family

With his calm rationale and latent laughter in any situation, it must have been easy for Sandy to know, Bruce was a keeper for life! B – We had a lot of winning years together Co-Coaching. Like Yin and Yang, we were balanced, (especially pitching BP … who’s arm would fall off first?) Fondly remembering the great times. Thanks for everything Brucey! J – I always got a kick out of Bruce’s clever associations like talking about football plays at baseball, looking for some new spin, or sharing lake tales by the pool. Our most heart felt, deepest condolences to each of you.
We have such great memories of the “Hurricane Years” with Bruce and Sandy. We cherish those memories. Our sincerest condolences to you and your family for your loss.
Our sincere condolence to the McQueen family at the passing of Bruce. We have fond memories working with Bruce solving customer’s problems. He had a disposition where he thought more of you and your well being than of himself.
His was a friendship that knows no boundaries and will be greatly missed in these days of marginalized relationships.
His partner in support at Megatech Integrated Services Ltd.
My thoughts and prayers to Sandy and family. Had the pleasure of butting heads with your father when we played Hurricanes together.
It was aiways good to catch up with him when I would see him when I was working at the L.C.B.O. over the years.
You will be missed, but not forgotten.
R.I.P. my friend.
Sandy and Family ,
