Bruce Beaton, MD


It is with a sad heart that we announce the passing of Bruce Alan Beaton on Sept. 27, 2023.   

He leaves behind his loving wife, Jean,
of 45 years and his sisters,
Gail and Becky, of Gibsons, B.C.   

He will be dearly missed by his family and friends. As a family physician in Whitehorse for many years, he will be remembered fondly by his patients, colleagues and all who worked with him.   

A celebration of his life of devotion, adventure and service will be held at a later date.
