    We regret to advise of the death of Corporal Ralph Bresson (Ret'd) of Dominion, Cape Breton NS, at the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital on 7 October 2023 at the age of 75 years.  

    Ralph was from the Glace Bay area and went to St. Michael's High School in Glace Bay. He enlisted in the Canadian Forces and the Royal Canadian Engineers in 1966. Ralph was with No. 41 Section in Recruit Squadron at the Royal Canadian School of Military Engineering in Chilliwack when he completed his basic Field Engineer training.

    Ralph next had a short tour with 2 Field Squadron in Gagetown NB, before being posted to 4 Field Squadron in Werl, Germany. He returned to Canada in 1970 with a posting to 1 Field Squadron in Petawawa. While with 1 Field Squadron, Ralph deployed to Pangnirtung on the Northern Airfields Construction project.

    Ralph retired from the Canadian Forces while he was in Petawawa and returned to his roots in Dominion (near Glace Bay) where he worked for the Town of Dominion School Board.

    Instead of flowers, donations can be made to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #3 in Glace Bay or a charity if you choose. Online condolences can be sent to the funeral home.

    There will be a Celebration of Life for Ralph Bresson next summer on 19 July 2024  at 11:00 am - 11:30 am at T.J. Tracey Cremation & Burial Specialists, 370 Reserve St, Glace Bay.
