PINSENT, R. Bruce - Born in Buchans, Newfoundland, April 2, 1948, died suddenly while visiting one of his favourite walking trails in Halifax on March 25, 2001. He was the youngest son of the late Albert and Florence Pinsent of Trinity Bay, Newfoundland.

Many of us go through life in a chosen field attempting to make a footprint, yet Bruce was agile enough to make an impression and everlasting mark in several disciplines and as such, if one song can be chosen to epitomize RBP it should be....

"My Way"

"I`ve lived a life that`s full,
I`ve travelled each and every highway."

Although a comparatively lessened lifespan, Bruce endeavoured and succeeded at a wide range of careers beginning with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a highway patrol officer advancing to such special operations within the organization as The Emergency Response Team and the SCUBA Search & Rescue Team as well as The K-9 Unit and ultimately The Drug Investigation Division.

Branching out from law enforcement, Bruce was part of a crew that scaled and maintained telecommunication towers throughout Atlantic Canada in the 70`s only to alter his course in the 80`s with the Bedford Institute of Oceanography as a technician co-responsible for the preparing and the maintaining of rigging and oceanic research equipment utilized for various Marine Geochemical Seabed & Glaciogenic Sediment Dispersal Studies throughout the North Atlantic including Canada`s High Arctic Region.

As a follow-up to Archean Resources Ltd`s 1993 Diamond Exploration Geochemical Survey and the subsequent unearthing of Ni, Cu, and Co Sulfides at Discovery Hill, Northern Labrador, Bruce was a member of the initial Geophysical Crew who recorded the first Magnetometer, VLF and Electromagnetic Signatures on a particularly historic survey; essentially locating the 34 Million Tonnes of Massive Sulfide Ore in what is now commonly referred to as The Ovoid Portion of The Voisey Bay Deposit.

Remaining with the Voisey Bay Project until 1996, Bruce as well as his fellow Exploration Managers in the field jointly played a pivotal role in utilizing up to 15 Helicopters totalling 28,000 hours of flying time including 300 drill moves and 20 Single Otter/ Twin Otter Flights per week to expedite and deploy scores of personnel, tonnes of supplies and equipment to various Exploration Sites, Campsites and to the project`s 15 Drill Sites. Given Bruce`s positive demeanour and willingness to help others it remains ever likely that individuals who encountered him while working for Atsanik Lodge, Archean Resources, Voisey Bay Nickel Co., Inco, Canadian Helicopters, Labrador Airways and Petro Drilling during this project will be saddened by his passing.

But then again, too few to mention
The record shows...I took the blows"

In 1996 Bruce was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy, a progressive form of Congestive Heart Failure, essentially retiring him from active Mineral Exploration Duty and although Camp Life, Prospecting Expeditions, Trail Walking, Salmon Fishing, and Stock Trading reflected his most passionate past times, spending time with his companions swapping stories, with his family eating a turkey dinner or with his daughter and great-nephews remained his most treasured moments.

His crowning achievement, daughter Ashley, emitting and radiating the full spectrum of light; displaying a jewel-like multi-faceted persona she will cut through life`s challenges as a result of the strength instilled in her by her father. Missing Bruce like no other right now will be his soul-mate and companion Sheila who often walked with him down the trail to love and laugh again. Also, his sister Elaine, who Bruce often made modified confessionals to, remained his safe harbour through his darkest of storms till the end; the guiding light he searched for. Sister Mildred, who was also there to listen and share in his stories. Karen, who still appears misty at the grim reminder that we will not witness him walk through our door to just enjoy a home, the fresh bread or the quilt that she was about to make him. Doris, also left missing the conversations had and the hospitality shared at Bruce`s quarterly visits.

This winter Mort, Mark and Bruce aligned themselves as some sort of a Right Wing Political Constellation; a group of fixed stars determined to shed light on todays national and international issues utilizing their side-winder e-mails to search for the truth out there and to destroy the political correctness of today`s over tolerant society. We will all miss Bruce`s turn on the ≥stump≤ where the best person actually gets the job, men marry women, being the Lone Wolf is O.K., the uniform doesn`t change, old trees sometimes have to be cut, wormy seals shouldn`t be hugged, success is not a four letter word, big gaping holes in the earth in the form of a mine are a thing of beauty, most environ-mental-ists are indeed mental at times, activists should use their Arts Degree for Good instead of Evil, analysts are retentive with accurate information, feeding foxes at camp gives them a bit of a break, sometimes you have to shoot the bear first and ask questions later, poodles are that other white meat, the white man is discriminated against, sometimes a good fight just can`t wait, open fires are sometimes necessary and in fact a pine martin may make a good burger. Bruce, on occasion humbly told me that he was the best Bruce Pinsent he new...testimony to the fact that unlike others, he was comfortable in his own skin.

"For what is a man, What has he got,
If not himself, then he has not,"

Bruce often spoke of his buddy Joe and wife Katherine as preferred company; always eager to share their time, bountiful meals and uplifting conversations. Joe...don`t let your claims lapse! As the song goes, his compadre Fred has suffered as "Lefty" would have, Seeing "Poncho" ride with him one day only to have fallen the next. As Fred told me, "He was like my brother....not too often in life you find someone who sees the world through the same window as you..."

Whether Bruce was laughing with Sara at the Round Table in Nain, Plotting a plan of attack with Paul, Brad, Gary, Richard, Cal, Eric, Smitty, Mort, Mark, Alex, Frank, Greg, Val, or George on the Project in The Big Land, eating with Dick & The Gang at Greensleeves, talking with Scotty, Sean, Henry & the Boys at a Hangar, Signing with Barry at The Vault or Consulting with Gerald, Griff, Gord and Dave at Camp he was genuine, predictable and one constant that we all could depend upon with the ever-changing variables, schedules and commitments present.

As for Chris and I, Bruce represented Strength to us as children; 5 ft.7 in. and Bullet Proof; although we always suspected his common mortality after a few missions that turned bad, his Courage remained. He was inturn a Safe Harbour for us both while on the road needing a place to stay or ride out a storm. He had travelled to exotic places around this planet and did some crazy things that we agreed to remain classified as such for some time to come. Our very own ≥Mack The Knife≤ and there was a time prior to Sheila that "Oh, the line forms on the right, babe...Ol` (Brucie) was back in town."

"Yes, there were times, I`am sure you Know,
When I bit off more than I could chew,
But through it all when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out"

Able to attend his service in Halifax on March 31, 2001, with Sheila Galey and her Family were Sister Joyce Eliott, Sister Mildred (Keith Johnson & Daughter Christine), Sister Elaine (Mort Verbiski), Sister Marilyn and Daughter Jaimie (Kevin Harfield), as well as Chris Verbiski & Doris Linehan, Walt & Lil Pinsent, Joe & Katherine Collier, Mark & Lynn Graves, Fred Sanger, Fred Jodrey, BIO and Archean Representatives.

"I`ve loved, I`ve laughed and cried, I`ve had my fails, my share of losing, and now as tears subside, I find it all so amusing."

On March 23, 2001, the last message on my answering machine from Bruce was just simply Buy World Heart - WHT-T, a Medical Engineering Company striving to design the worlds first artificial heart transplant prototype...so, for those inclined to do so, instead of donations, perhaps in this case it would be more appropriate to hedge your bets in honor of Bruce on a solution to Heart Failure.

Bruce was cremated on March 29, 2001 and like some of his Nasdaq Stocks, 1/16th may be travelling down a river near you.

Bruce remains the only White Man I know who always referred to himself as The Shaman so I suspect...on some outcrop or salmon fishing river out there, Bruce will let us know that he is still O.K. Now it`s time to "Lock N` Load" cause, for the most part...It`s a "Wonderful World" out there.
