Bruce Holliday Obituary

With extreme heartbreak, we announce the sudden passing of Staff Sergeant Bruce Holliday, after having served 18 years with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He was predeceased by his parents Margaret (nee: Cole) and Frank Holliday. He will be remembered by his brothers, Randy (Susan), Ken (Karen), and Gord. Bruce was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and grew up in Transcona. He started his career in security at the Trizec Building in Winnipeg before moving to Edmonton, Alberta as Security Manager at Canada Place. In 2004, his lifelong dream of becoming a police officer like his father and grandfather finally came true when he was accepted to the RCMP.

Upon graduation from Depot, he married the love of his life, Lidia (nee: Consiglio), on September 19, 2004. They moved to Drumheller for his first posting where they welcomed their wonderful daughter, Kayla. He then transferred to Fort McMurray where they welcomed a second amazing daughter, Claire. After this they spent their lives together at his postings in Red Deer, Bashaw, and lastly Stettler.

Bruce loved doing jobs outside and playing with his German Shepherd, Ringo. He was a champion cheerleader for his girls at all they did. He loved watching them grow into the fine young ladies that they are becoming. His love for his wife was never-ending and he loved spending time with her and brightening her day any way he could. He had a desire to serve his community which was evident by the time, effort, and passion he put into everything he did. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to any friends and neighbours. He was an incredible man, friend, officer, and especially husband and father and will be forever missed.
