Bruce Syme

March 11, 1944 - December 31, 2015


Jamie passed away peacefully, surrounded by family.  Jamie was a testimony of God’s grace and healing.  Almost 4 years ago, he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and given a survival rate of 4 to 5 months.  Throughout his journey with cancer, he never wavered in his faith in God.  His health care professionals often said that there was no predicting what Jamie’s future might be as he blew holes in their predictions time after time. Born in Mississauga, Ontario to Eva and Bruce Syme, Husband of Kathryn Ann (Aitchison) Syme, Brother to Heather, Stephen, Colleen, Brian, Patrick, Bonnie, Scott, Michael, Robin, and Laurie;  Father to Bruce, Tamara, Eva, Jeremy, Paul, Robert, and Miranda; Grandfather to Robin, Jordan, Leland, Colton, and Henry; Great-grandfather to Wesley and Ronald; Servant of God.  A memorial service will be held at Grace Church, 2087 McMillan Road, Abbotsford, BC on Saturday, January 9, 2016 at 2:00 pm.  In lieu of flowers donations may be made to:   KSyme, 3695 Nicomen Place, Abbotsford, BC V3G 1J1 for the Jamie Syme Memorial Fund.

So many fond memories of Jamie, it’s hard to pick one, but the most quintessential ones would be when he was sharing a personal word from God for me. These I will treasure. Love and prayers for Kathy and the family.

From: Nancy and Tabor Mercier
Relation: friend

We were sad to hear of Jamie’s passing. Tabor loved him very much and always considered him a good friend. We both so appreciated it when Jamie came to see him in Vancouver when he was in the hospital. We have fond memories of you both and loved you. Your lives were a testimony to the love and grace of God. Blessings to you.

I had the privilege of knowing Jaimie through the distribution and sharing of Cob’s Bread to those in need. He also shared with those who were hungry spiritually. I will miss those times we would meet for coffee. Dear Kathy, Eva & children: May the Lord console you in the days ahead. Love, Lloyd
