Clayton CLARK

CLARK, Clayton Lindsay (Clay)

1933 – 2013 We are deeply saddened to announce Clay’s death on Sunday, March 24th at Peace Arch Hospital, after a lengthy battle with lung cancer. He was 79. Clay was pre-deceased by his parents, father Sandy and mother Alice and also by his younger brother, Grant.

Left to mourn are his three daughters, the two oldest girls, Carolyn (John) and Janice (Paul) and their mother Jane, and his youngest daughter Lindsay (Keith) and her mother Susan. Also left are his four beloved grandchildren, Gillian, Ian, Erin and Madeline. He leaves his brother Lee and sisters Beryl, Fay, Sandra, Anne (Vic), Sheila (Marvin), 19 nieces and nephews, and many grand nieces and nephews.

Clay was born in Nipawin, Sask., but most of his childhood was spent on Vancouver Island. After finishing high school he joined the Air Force. The courses he took while in the Force helped launch his lengthy career first as a technician with Canadian Telephone & Supplies, and later as a supervisor with BC Telephone. He retired from BC Tel in 1988 but continued to be active in the telecommunications industry.

In his retirement he enjoyed many games of golf at Swan-e-Set, where he was a member. He was an avid hockey and football fan attending many local games. He played and coached softball throughout most of his life. Clay loved life and he was most happy attending gatherings with family and friends, where he would be one of the last to leave. He will be missed. We would like to thank Dr. Gibbings and Dr. Pretty and the hospice nurses for their kind and loving care while Clay was in Peace Arch Hospital. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Clay’s memory to the Hospice or Emergency Ward at Peace Arch Hospital. The Funeral Service will be held at 1pm on April 6th Maple Ridge Funeral Chapel 11969 – 216th Street. Condolences may be sent to
