Brenda, Denise, David and families,

Our deepest sympathy on the passing of your father. Uncle Clarke was a great man with a super sense of humour. He loved his hunting and fishing and always had great stories about his adventures. He will be sadly missed by many.

Take care and God bless.

Such a lovely man! I volunteer at Warkworth place. When he first arrived he would dazzle me with his dancing abilities, and of course with his huge smile! My condolences, thoughts and prayers are with you all ♥️

Dear Brenda, Denise, David and your families,
Your Dad, our beloved Clarke, lives on in all of our hearts as a truly remarkable soul possessed of many talents and a wide circle of dear friends. So many pursuits defined him from an early age- assisting on a dairy farm, shoemaker, office administrator, credit union executive, skilled fisherman, deer, moose, turkey and grouse hunter, berry picker extraordinaire. And with Paulette, the love of his life, he shared a zest for making a loving home , gardening and travelling far and wide in Canada, but always never forgetting the important trips to Galway Road and the Kinmount Fair. He is happy now in heaven with your Mom and his mother and father, Theresa and Ernest and with their sainted friend, Brother Francis.

Brenda, Denise, David and families;
and Peter, Joe, Mary, Faye, Turk,

My heartfelt sympathies for the loss of your dear father and big brother. Uncle Clarke will be fondly remembered for his kind, sweet, jovial, warm-hearted nature. I always enjoyed spending time around him and often referred to him as a big “teddy bear”. His broad, contagious smile brightened my spirit and his deep baritone laugh filled me with lightness and joy. I am grateful for the precious moments and fond memories I have of Uncle Clarke and wish all of you peace and comfort as memories of Clarke and the love of family surrounds you.

I share these words from Mother Theresa in honour of Clarke’s warm “teddy bear”smiles we were all blessed to receive:

“Every time you smile at someone it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.” ~ Mother Theresa

Blessings to you all,
Susan

Brenda, Denise & David

My sincere condolences to you and your families on your father's passing. I will remember Uncle Clarke and my Godfather as a kind, caring man with a great sense of humour. Uncle Clarke taught me how to fish (Dad tried, but he wasn't quite the fisherman or hunter his older brother was) and those annual fishing trips into Birch Bark Lake in Kinmount with Dad, Uncle Clarke, Paul Jones and Andy Davidson (there were others) while I was finding my way in the world as a young boy are cherished memories. My Dad and I talked about some of those times this evening. He, Mom and all of us pass on our blessings and say hello to everyone.

Take care, stay healthy and God bless,

John (Lisa, Robert, Joshua & Matthew)
