Charles Bruce Caves (Bruce Caves), age 81, passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of February 22, 2023, due to ongoing medical issues. He was born April 26, 1941, in the small town of Streetsville Ontario to his father Charles, and mother Viola. In 1963 he married his high school sweetheart Sandra Mae Caves and they began their lives together.
Bruce had a passion for three things in life; family, friends, and music. These three passions could frequently be found together creating memories on Redstone lake at the family cottage and around the campfire. It was also common to find Bruce, his family, and his friends snowmobiling through the Haliburton Highlands during the winter seasons settling after a long day's ride to warm up, play cards and listen to some John Denver or Charley Pride.
Music was always in his life and he enjoyed writing and playing music with many folks over the years but more recently in the town of Haliburton as a supporting role with a number of local talents and entertainers such as Gord Kidd & Friends.
Bruce (Pupup) was also a proud grandfather, who loved watching his two grandchildren, Chantal and Cody grow and develop into amazing young adults.
Helping people was part of Bruce’s character and after spending time as an auto mechanic and police officer, he settled into a long and rewarding career as a fire fighter on the Mississauga Fire Department helping and supporting the community.
Bruce is survived by his wife Sandra Caves, his eldest son Carl Caves, his youngest son Brad Caves and his wife Josee Lacasse-Caves, and finally by his two grandchildren Cody Caves and Chantal Caves. All of who he loved deeply and was very proud of.
