PEARSON, K. Bruce – 66, Valley. It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, step father, brother and grandfather, Bruce Pearson, on Friday, September 22, 2017, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in Truro, he was a son of the late Kenneth and Beryl (Atkinson) Pearson. As a teenager, Bruce delivered newspapers for Truro Daily News and then continued to work with them in many capacities over the years and retired as Advertising Manager. In earlier years, he went through the ranks of Cubs and Scouts and was also a leader. He coached fastball in Truro for over 20 years and loved camping at Hidden Hilltop with his wife and their many friends, especially, Bobby Richard. An avid musician and story teller, Bruce took great pleasure in entertaining and bringing joy to family and friend at the campground, seniors at various nursing homes and many others; although his stories were true, they were quite often elaborated on each time they were told!
