Stanford Bruce Green June 10, 1924 – December 15, 2017 Stanford Bruce Green June 10, 1924 – December 15, 2017. After a full life and a long battle with Alzheimer’s, Stanford Bruce Green died on December 15 in Saskatoon at the age of 93. Bruce was born on June 10, 1924, to Harold (Hi) and Bertha (Bill) Green in Glen Ewen, SK. Bruce served in WW2 as a draftsman and as a dispatch rider from age 17 to 23, serving his country from 1941-45. He later married Marion Bernice Parr in 1952. They had four children: Bruce, Colin, Beverly, and Cynthia. Bruce’s creative gifts were evident throughout his life. He loved drafting, painting, and singing. He was always fascinated by the world around him and found great pleasure in the simple things most took for granted. He served God and people unselfishly. After placing his trust in Christ years ago, he found the peace and purpose he’d been searching for and became a faithful worshiper and taught Sunday School to dozens of special needs adults for many years. Bruce was a kind man whose tender ways reached everyone who knew him. He was a true gentleman, humble in spirit, and lived with a kind of simple joy. He never understood his impact on others but the recipients of his kindness were all the richer. Bruce is survived by his children, Bruce (Paige), Colin (Colleen), Beverly (David), Cynthia (Ferencs). At the time of his passing, he had 14 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. He is also survived by his daughter Lynne Butterfield born and still lives in England. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Don and Glen, and sister Muriel. A Celebration Service to honour Bruce’s life will be held at Circle Drive Alliance Church on Saturday, January 6, 2018, at 11:00 in the morning with a reception to follow.
