In Celebration of

W. Bruce Charron

November 22, 1950 -  February 10, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Walter Bruce Charron, better known as Bruce.

Born November 22, 1950 in Montreal, Bruce grew up in St. Lambert and was an avid sportsman who played football and hockey throughout his youth. While in university, he proudly played football for Sir George Williams.

Bruce became involved in the family business, he met his wife and then settled in Montreal West where they would raise their three girls. His devotion to his family, desire to give back to his community and passion for sports and fun would be the guiding forces by which he lived his life.

He spent much of his time in Jay Peak Vermont with his family and many dear friends. His involvement with the ski hill, community events and local businesses made him an integral part of the Jay Peak family.
Bruce was best at bringing people together for a greater good. A prime example of this was his commitment and dedication to Andy Collins for Kids; a charity to raise money for the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Bruce had a hand in raising almost 4 million dollars over the last 22 years.

Bruce is predeceased by his loving parents, Wally and Maureen Charron. He leaves behind his wife of 38 years, Anne, his daughters Lindsay (Greg Thompson), Stephanie and Kirsten, and his grandchildren Lucy and Cole. He also leaves behind his siblings Lorraine (Dale Kenney), Nancy, Peter (Anne Turner) and so many loving nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Anyone who knew Bruce knew that he was larger than life.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, February 18th 2019. The visitation begins at 2pm, the ceremony starts at 4pm and a reception will follow at the:
Mount Royal Funeral Complex
1297 Chemin de la Foret

To say that Bruce was larger than life is almost an understatement. He touched so many lives and gave so much of himself. And he wasn't done yet... We are devasted for his family and for his huge network of friends. His absence will be felt for a very long time.

Dear Anne and family. Our hearts break for all of you for the loss of such a wonderful person. Bruce will always be remembered by us for his great sense of humour, quick wit and his engaging manner.
Jay Peak will not be the same without him.
We are in Mexico so will be unable to celebrate Bruce’s life with you but we will certainly do it here.
Love to you.
Bill and Helen

Bruce and I were friends from kindergarten thru to university. He was a kind, caring, funny, handsome gentleman. I last saw Bruce at my brother Dave's funeral in St.Lambert where Bruce took the time to share stories with me of Dave from growing up in our hometown. He was very comforting at a very sad time and I shall always appreciate this. Even though I hadn't seen him in over 30 years , he was the same quality person he always was. To Anne and Bruce's family, you are in my thoughts and prayers at this exceedingly sad time.
