A public celebration of Bruce's life will be announced as soon as possible.

Spring interment in Fairview Cemetery, Listowel.

The REALTOR® family is saddened to hear of the passing of one of their peers, Bruce Kempston. Bruce has been a pillar to the real estate profession for several years and will be sorely missed. He has helped many families buy and sell their home, supported local organizations to help build strong communities and been a mentor for the real estate community. Rest in peace my friend from the members of the Huron Perth Association of REALTORS®

Our deepest condolences to Bruce's entire family as well as his colleagues. We met Bruce 18 years ago when we first arrived in Listowel and enjoyed a working relationship with him ever since. He was a great guy with such great community spirit. May your memories comfort you at this difficult time.
