R. Bruce Carter


R. Bruce Carter
It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of Robert Bruce Carter, 68, of Murray Corner, NB on Monday, April 13, 2020 at the Moncton Hospital.  Born in Moncton, Bruce was a son of the late Robert Allan and Elaine (Canning) Carter.

Bruce graduated from Mount Allison University, and has held many jobs, including a 35+ year career with NBTel / Aliant in IT Management, however his favorite job of all has been being Grampy. Spending time with his grandson has brought them both, and our entire family, so much joy. With the lightness of laughter and warmth of his smile, Bruce lived his retirement to the fullest, enjoying his bowling league and time spent doing alley maintenance. His Wednesday morning coffee group meetings were dear to his heart.  

Our family and his many friends, have appreciated Bruce's versatile intelligence, insight, quick wit and sharp sense of humor. Generous with his time and knowledge, with a life-long love of wildlife and the outdoors, his hard working nature has lent skill and talent to carpentry, plumbing, electrical, and endless building and repair projects. His physical strength and strength of character, flexibility, kindness, and steadfast support, have been such blessings to his family.

Papa - we'll miss you forever and love you for always. Thank you for all that you've shared with us.

In addition to his wife of 47 years, Annette (nee Legere), Bruce will be sadly missed by his daughters Jodie (Aaron Koleszar) Carter, Belle River, PE, and Amanda (Denis Dignard) Carter, Springfield, NB; his beloved grandson, Ero Carter-Koleszar; his sister Sherry (John) Britton, Moncton and his brother-in-law, Pastor Normand McDonald, Fredericton.

Besides his parents, Bruce was predeceased by his sister Terry McDonald.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Jones Funeral Home, Port Elgin, NB (506-364-1300).  In light of the current social distancing protocols, a service in memory of Bruce will be held at a later date.
