He remained in Moncton until July 23, 2002, the date of his death. Bruce was born and raised in Moncton, New Brunswick. Bruce was married to Monique and they were expecting their first child in November, 2001. At the time of Bruce's death, his son Garret Bruce Wood was 8 months old. All who knew Bruce loved him. He had a pleasant personality and enjoyed meeting people, playing sports, collecting memorabilia about sports. Bruce never complained during his illness. He leaves to mourn his wife, son, mother, father, one sister, several nieces and nephews, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, as well as his extended family members and friends.
