Clifford Saucier

March 30, 1928May 7, 2020

SAUCIER, Clifford- At the Cornwall Community Hospital on Thursday, May 7th, 2020. He was 92. Cherished father of Melody Crites (Don), Elaine O’Byrne (Gordon), Cindy Holt (Dave), Laurie Warnke (Paul), Carolee LeBlanc (Derrick), Patricia Saucier (Mike Laferriere) and Tanis Saucier (Guillaume Jabbor). Sadly missed by his 17 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren. Survived by his brothers, Robert (Pat) and Daniel. Predeceased by his parents, Henry and Margaret (Pecore) Saucier, his brothers, Euclide (late Ruby), Godfrey and his sisters, Adwilda and Elaine. Due to the current public restrictions a Funeral Mass will be held at a later date. Cremation services entrusted to the M. John Sullivan Funeral Home, 341 Pitt Street (across from city hall) Cornwall. Rite of Committal at St. Columban’s Cemetery at a later date. Clifford was born and raised in Cornwall on York Street. He started working at 16; first in the Cotton Mill and retiring from Domtar. The smokestack still standing on the old Domtar property was the one he worked on back in the day. Dad shared a lifelong passion for hockey, trains and card games with his children, grandchildren and friends. You knew if you beat him at cribbage it was an honest win. Dad played to win, even if you were six years old! He helped others when asked without a grumble, especially if there was a power tool involved and despite losing the tip of a finger here and there over the years. He was most proud of his girls, his seven daughters and his family. One of the last conversations we had was dad asking “how’s the family doing?” Whether Dad was playing cards, working on a building project, serving his community at church, or enjoying time with family, he did it with passion and great exuberance...I think we sisters all got that gene from him! His faith carried him through many difficult times. We will honour that faith when we can all gather to celebrate his life. Our dad’s stories, his values, and his love for each of us, lives on in each of us. What a wonderful legacy. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to the Agape Food Bank or Charity of Choice would be appreciated by the family.

My deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved Clifford. I consider myself fortunate to have known and played cribbage with the man. Much love to my friend Laurie, and all her family. You were there for me when My Mum passed away, I will always be grateful for that. If there is anything I can do in kind, let me know.
