Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Cliff, along with Sheila, formed so much a part of our youth. From swimming in their pool to snowmobiling and everything in between. They both devoted so much time to Family. Cliff was a fine mentor. A conversation with him usually had one learning something, laughing a lot or both. He had the best fastball catcher “chatter” of all time. Thank you so much, Cliff. It was an honour and a pleasure. - Posted by: Grant Bannatyne (Nephew) on: Dec 11, 2022

  • My deepest sympathy to you 'Auntie' Sheila. Although it has been a long time since we have seen each other, I will never forget all of the fun and good times that we had with you and 'Uncle' Cliff. I have great memories, especially those Grey Cup parties which were always around my Dad's birthday! I have thought of you often throughout the years and will keep you in my heart. - Posted by: Sandra Dawson-Foley (Family friend) on: Dec 10, 2022

  • Cliff was a wealth of knowledge on everything nautical and was ALWAYS ready to give a helping hand to anyone in need. - Posted by: Darrin Carlin (fellow Royal manitoba yacht club member) on: Dec 08, 2022
