It is with profound sadness and unmeasurable pain that we announce the sudden passing of Bruce Bradley Barrington, age 37, at home in Coxheath on Monday, August 31, 2020.
Bruce was born on May 27, 1983 in New Waterford and was raised in Sydney, NS.

Also left to mourn are his grandparents, Terry and Peter MacKinnon and Thelma and Bobby Barrington; aunts, Trina (Cliff) Stewart, Anita (Dan) Harris, Lorna (Cletus) Hallahan, Elaine Barrington, Linda Barrington and a large number of extended family and friends.
Bruce attended Cape Breton University where he studied Mechanical Engineering (Class of 2007). He was happily employed at Protocase as an Engineering and Design Service Lead.

To Keith & Carol Lee & family, Bob & Thelma, Elaine, Anita, Linda, Lorna and families; words alone cannot express the pain that you are feeling right now, time will help a little but such a loss will remain fresh for a very long time and will never go away. To Keith and Carol Lee, no parent should have to lose a child; I know first hand the pain that you are feeling. Please know that my thoughts, prayers and heart are with all of you. My heart breaks for each of you. Take comfort from Bruce’s children for they are a part of him; they will help to see you through this immeasurable pain. May you take comfort from the family and friends that surround you; and cherish each and every memory; for memories are the one thing that death cannot take. ” You are in the arms of Jesus now, and I know that you’ll be fine. But I wish with all my heart that those arms were mine.” With love to all of you, my deepest condolences. Shirley
