Remembering Bruce Payne

PAYNE, Bruce Gordon

Born 12 April 1946

Died 24 March 2011

Bruce was born in Scotland and was very proud of his heritage. He spent his school years in Nanaimo but always considered the Cowichan Valley his home. Bruce started his broadcasting career in Nanaimo when he was 17. He worked at many different radio and TV stations throughout the province and finished his career at CHEK TV.

Another major part of his life was spent in serving the community. He was a councillor for both the City of Duncan and the Municipality of North Cowichan but was most proud of his work with the BC Forest Museum and helping to get bus service established in the valley.
