Obituary for Grenville Ernest Brumwell

Suddenly at Ross Memorial Hospital, on Tuesday June 27th, 2023, in his 78th year, Grenville has gone to be with his Lord. Beloved husband and soul mate of Bonnie Brumwell (Nee Thomas) of Bobcaygeon after 51 years of marriage. Loving father of Ellen and her husband Ron Kuipers, Katherine and her husband Jonathan Brinkman, Peter and his wife Megan Brumwell, and William and his wife Carrie Brumwell. Proud grandpa to Logan and Dryden Kuipers; Matthew, Caleb (Alana), Hope Brinkman; Knox and Piper Brumwell; Kyla, Elijah, Moriah, Aiyanna, Leora, Thalia, Isaiah, and Josiah Brumwell. Dear brother of Clinton Brumwell and his wife Moira predeceased; James Brumwell and his wife Nancy predeceased, Timothy Brumwell predeceased, and his wife Sylvia; John Brumwell and his wife Laurie; Douglas Brumwell and his wife Kimberly, and David Brumwell and his wife Catherine. Close brother-in-law of John and Carol Thomas. Predeceased by his parents William and Muriel Brumwell and his in- laws Leonard and Helen Thomas. Grenville was born and raised in Bobcaygeon. From about the age of twelve to eighteen he spent his summers and weekends working for Harold and Betty Beatty on their dairy farm. After high school he went to Toronto and became an electrician, married the love of his life and returned to his roots when buying a farm outside of Bobcaygeon. Truly a farmer in heart, he spent years commuting daily to TO but always said it was worth it in order to live on the farm and raise his children. As the years went by it was wonderful when grandchildren arrived and would spend their March breaks at the farm. When he finally was old enough his baseball and old-timers hockey “careers” took off. Gren was also a man after God’s own heart, not perfect, but a man of faith, who knew Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour. He was a critical thinker and pursuer of the truth. The family of Grenville Brumwell will receive friends at Little Britain Community Baptist Church, 489 Eldon Road, Little Britain, on Saturday July 1, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. until time of funeral service at 12:00 p.m. Private family interment at Verulam Cemetery, Bobcaygeon.
