Sorry to hear of the passing of a childhood friend Clinton David. Clinton was a gentle soul, always willing to participate in a game or two, and wanted those around him to have fun and be happy. He was so excited when he joined the Sea Cadets and his face shone whenever he wore his Navy Uniform. May God grant him Eternal Rest.

Dad
I am so sad and heartbroken that you are gone from this earth. You were such an amazing man so full of love and care for everyone.
Known as Mr. Metro because you were the nicest, funniest and most caring driver. You put smiles on everyone’s face as you greeted them as they got on your bus. You we’re loved by everyone. Even your coworkers loved you as you always did extra things like the rodeo, fill the bus and coach the ball team with and for them. You we’re truly an inspiration to all.
I will miss hearing daughter of mine and my girl from your lips but I know you are with me and I look forward to being greeted by you with a big hug and kiss when we meet again. I will carry you in my heart and in all the fond memories we had.
RIP dad! We miss and love you always!

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my friend, Clinton. Although I did not have an opportunity to talk with him in the last few years, he was often in my thoughts and in my prayers. Clinton and I shared a passion for fastball and we coached teams together in the Halifax area. He was very dedicated to his sports, and beside his talent and knowledge, he always brought a smile and a laugh to the game. I know some day we will meet again, and I will hear his laugh and see him smile .... no more pain, rest in peace, my friend.

I have great memories playing baseball against Clinton in Woodlawn in the early 60's...he had a great sense of humour and was fun to play with...a fine man and a fine player.

Clinton drove the bus (#1) that my son, who was two at the time, used to take downtown. During the winter he always had a hot cup of tea for me and about 4 other passengers who always sat at the front of the bus, laughing and carrying on with him. He knew all his regular passengers, if not by name, by face. If he saw one of them running for the bus stop, he would pull over and stop for them so they didn't miss the bus. He was extremely good to my son, who also got a treat each morning, usually an apple or orange but sometimes he would sneak in a candy bar. Clinton was a kind and caring man and was a credit to Metro Transit. I watched people wait specifically for HIS bus because he was so nice to everyone, always greeting them with a genuine smile and a cheery "Good Morning". RIP my friend.

Clinton, it broke my heart to hear of your passing. My heart is filled with joyful memories of our childhood days.. When I was speaking to you a few years ago, we talked about getting together and having a reunion with my brother Aubrey and others we grew up with, but God had other plans. He needed another Angel, so he called you home. My heart takes comfort in knowing that we have yet another Guardian Angel watching over us. My condolences to your family and friends. Soar with the Angels, my friend until we meet again. With God on our side, I know we will. Rest in Heavenly Peace Clinton♥️😇🙏🏾

I remember when I was 16 years old you drove me over the McDonald Bridge Daily. You were most certainly hauling heavy on the route 11. Little was I to know that I myself would be driving the route 11 and hauling heavy five years later. Clinton you’ve always been an inspiration to me your kind words to your passengers drove my passion to want to drive. I can’t think of anyone who wasn’t a friend of yours.A true gentleman and a class act rest in peace my friend.
