FLOWERS, R. Bruce - 1947 - 2018 A member of the Sculptors’ Society of Canada, he taught Visual Arts for thirty years. Huron Park Secondary was his first permanent position in his home town of Woodstock, ON., before pursuing his dream of taking his Master of Fine Arts (Sculpture) degree in New York (Pratt Institute) ‘82 - ‘84. He retired from Saunders Secondary in London in 2002 where he had been active as an openly gay teacher from the early 1990s. He considered his effort as a gay role model his most important contribution to education. The founder of the London Pride Art Show in 1992, he was presented the Ken Sadler Award, retiring as its curator one last time in 2017 after many decades of involvement. His passions were sculpture and heritage architecture, delighting in the restoration of his beautiful historic home. A private funeral service will be held prior to the interment of ashes at Hillview Cemetery. If desired, memorial contributions to the Rainbow Youth Bursary Fund would be appreciated, and may be arranged through the BROCK AND VISSER FUNERAL HOME , 845 Devonshire Avenue, Woodstock (519-539-0004).
