O’ROURKE – Bruce Glen
We are saddened to announce the sudden passing of our loved one, Bruce Glen O’Rourke. Bruce went to be with the Lord on August 28, 2010 at the age of 65. Only a short time has passed since he was sadly predeceased by his loving wife and best friend Georgina Jeanette O’Rourke (nee Youngberg). He is survived by three children Deanna Kim O’Rourke of Alabama, Kynan Glen O’Rourke (Kelly) of West Kelowna and Sean Patrick Walter O’Rourke of Calgary. Bruce was a fun-loving grandpa to ten grandchildren, Courtney, Jeremy, Jessica, Janelle, Joshua, Bret, Brooklyn, Conner, Zachary and Keira. He was also predeceased by his birth mother Dorothy Williams, parents Thomas and Nancy O’Rourke and brother Wally Williams (Joanne) of Tsawwassen, BC. Survived by siblings Chief Williams, Mable Williams, Loretta Williams, Karen Underwood, Bertha Williams, Brad Williams, loving nieces Michelle (Corey) Baker, Tanya (Matt) Corbett, nephew Kyle (Tiffany) Williams all of Tsawwassen, BC. Bruce leaves behind many other special relatives and close friends. Born on December 10, 1944 in Comox, BC, “Da Goose” was a proud union carpenter for 40 years. Bruce and Gina were married for 44 years and gave unselfishly to their community through church and numerous charities. Bruce loved his wife and family so deeply. We are heartbroken he was taken from us so soon but we are comforted in knowing that Mom and Dad/Grandma and Grandpa are together again. We love you and are thankful for all that you gave. Keep singing, Dad, Gramps, friend and brother, XO. Memorial service will be held on Friday, September 3, 2010 at 10:30 am at Trinity Baptist Church, 1905 Springfield Road. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Trinity Baptist Church – Missionary Fund. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
