11338 Major Bruce Barteaux, EME After proudly serving in the Regular Canadian Forces for 35 years, Major Barteaux retired on 11 Aug 08, to return the next day in a Class B Reserve position as Project Manager of Clothe the Soldier, a testament to his love of serving in the uniform of the Canadian Army. After his enrolment on 1 Aug 73 in Halifax, Bruce attended the Royal Military College in Kingston, from which he graduated in 1978. After qualifying as a LORE (now EME) officer, his first posting was to CFB Edmonton. Three years in Lahr, Germany saw him serving with 4 Svc Bn, and 4 CER. These were followed by various postings to NDHQ as well as CFB Greenwood, Formation Logistics in MARLANT and 36 Brigade in
Halifax. He had opportunities through his career to serve on Army, Navy and Air Force bases and in National Defence, Area and Brigade Headquarters as well as NATO and UN deployments. Additionally, he experienced the rare opportunity of sharing an Afghanistan deployment with his son. On that note, two of the proudest moments of his career were enrolling his son, Jonathan, in the Reg Force in 2002, and presenting the Queen’s Commission to his daughter, Stephanie, in 2006. Bruce’s running achievements are legendary within the CF and outside of it. A veteran of 69 marathons and over 30 ultramarathon races, including representing Canada at the World championships in the 100 Km distance for the past seven years, Bruce was inducted into the Canadian Forces Sports Hall of Fame in November 2007. He has also channeled his running efforts into fundraising for the Terry Fox Foundation, having raised nearly $45,000 for that cause. Throughout his career, Bruce has been supported on the home front by his best friend and wife, Bonnie, with whom he has been married for over 30 years. Given that he was not leaving the area, it was decided that a retirement function would be held later this year. A relaxed affair to honour Bruce and Bonnie on his retirement will take place during a luncheon activity on Fri, 19 Dec 08 at the Chateau Cartier in Gatineau, Quebec.
