Bruce sure will be missed.   He was a good friend, neighbor, and part of our extended family.   But he is finally out of pain and in heaven with his beloved wife, Lavona.  He took such good care of her and it was wonderful to see him going for a walk and holding her hand.  God be with you Bruce and may you rest in peace, and strength for his family.

To the family of Bruce Canova, I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. He and his wife Lavona were wonderful neighbors to my parents, John and Jeanne Whitbeck. My Mom always enjoyed visiting especially with Rebecca.
Please know that you are in my prayers.
I’m sure that the fond memories you have Bruce will help to sustain you through this difficult time.
