It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Bruce Best Cosman, age 85, of Amherst, NS.  Bruce passed away at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on Sunday, December 18, 2022.

Born in Amherst, NS, he was a son of the late Ervin G. and Elizabeth M. (Best) Cosman.

Bruce spent his early life living and working in the United States, he worked selling and setting up cash registers for many businesses, running hotels, and selling computers when they were the size of rooms. When Bruce's mother Elizabeth fell ill, Bruce returned to Nova Scotia to help care for her. Bruce was a man that could talk him self in or out of anything, I once witnessed him exchange an item that was over a year old and get the newest model and money back for it. Bruce was a lover of the history of the areas he visited, searching out and enjoying any museums he could find. Bruce always knew the best places to find a good meal, you could be driving down a dirt road and he would pull up to a house, that house would turn out to be an amazing restaurant. Bruce will be greatly missed as even in his late years he was up for a grand old conversation about anything and everything.

Bruce is survived by multiple cousins.

He was predeceased by his father Ervin G. Cosman, his mother Elizabeth M. (Best) Cosman, and brother Keith I. Cosman.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of the Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church St., Amherst, NS (902-667-8777).  There will be no visitation or funeral service.  Burial will take place in the Sackville Cemetery in the spring.

Donations in Bruce's memory may be made to the charity of choice.
