Clive passed away peacefully in hospital on February 16, 2016 with his wife by his side. He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1936 and moved to Canada as a teenager with his Mother in 1952. He lived in many cities in Ontario, Quebec and Scotland and moved to Vancouver in 1989 and later to Maple Ridge, BC. Clive had a keen intellect, a great sense of humour, and was talented at whatever he tried (including cooking). For those who understood him and/or accepted him as he was, he was truly a precious treasure with a kind and beautiful soul. Clive was predeceased by his parents Jane and Andrew Copeland. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 26 years Heather, daughter Kathryn Copeland with grandson Conal, son Andrew Copeland (Selina), sisters-in-law Debbie Doyle (Peg) and Patricia Ruscigno, and cousins Alan Jollie (Fiona), Eileen Henderson (Sandy), Patricia Banyard (Bill), and Sheila Morin (Sonny). Clive also leaves behind many nephews and nieces in Scotland and Canada as well as his previous wife Jean Trask in Ontario. Clive will also be missed by his good friend of many years Steve Welch. Thank you to Dr. D. Sauder and the 2West staff for their excellent care of Clive during his 3 weeks in hospital. A very special thank you to Dr. Dennis Chapman for providing his amazing expertise and compassionate care to Clive over the many years. I would also like to thank the Fraser Health Home Health Staff (Community Health Workers, Nurses & Occupational Therapists) for their wonderful care & support of Clive over the past year.
It was very much appreciated. There will be no service by request.
