Resting at Barrett's Funeral Home, 328 Hamilton Ave. on Monday from 2-4 and 7-9 and Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9. Funeral service will take place at Barrett's Chapel on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 at 11 am. Cremation to follow. Interment will be held at a later date. There will be a reception immediately following the funeral service at the Legion, Branch 1, Blackmarsh Road. Clifford was a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, where he earned several medals, one in particular for rescuing a bus load of children in a terrible snowstorm. His years of service as a peace keeper in Egypt and Germany made him a wealth of knowledge, which he shared as a guest speaker at many local schools every Remembrance Day. The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff on the 4th floor at Tiffany Village who went above and beyond to care for dad. In a short time, they became family. He will be sadly missed by his many friends at Golden Arm Campground, as well as the Royal Canadian Legion, where he was a life-time member, past president and an avid volunteer for the Poppy Fund. Flowers gratefully accepted or donations can be made in his name to the Canadian Cancer Society. To sign the online memorial guest book, please visit www.barretts.ca.
