James Bruce Bodnaruk
James (Jim) Bruce Bodnaruk passed away in Edmonton on October 13, 2022 at the age of 76 years with his family by his side.
James began his career in car sales in his early 20s quickly moving into the heavy truck industry where he served as Salesman, Manager and District Manager before creating his own dealership, MacDonald Roberts, named after his 2 favorite ladies, Marjorie MacDonald, his mother and his wife, Dixie Roberts. Throughout his career he acquired many faithful customers and dear friends due to his exemplary successes, service and warm fellowship.
