It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Don Clifford, on May 8, 2019 at Georgian Bay General Hospital in Midland at the age of 74. Don was born in Wiarton, Ontario on January 11, 1945 to Bruce and Laura (Lunnie) Clifford. He is survived by his wife and best friend of 51 years, Janice (Cross) of Midland; his daughter Tammy, son-in-law Greg and grandsons Evan, Cameron, and Jack of Ottawa; daughter Catherine, her partner Sam and son Dylan of Burlington; sister June (Brian Gibson) of Collingwood; brother Joseph (Sue) of Chapleau; brother Elmer (Ellen) of Elmira and sister-in-law Betty of Owen Sound. Don was predeceased by his parents Bruce and Laura, his brother Douglas, his sister Edith and Don & Janice’s beloved canine companion, Sadie. Don will also be dearly missed by many nieces, nephews and friends. All who knew Don will remember him for his quiet and gentle manner, warm heart and unconditional love. The world is a better place because of him.
Don’s family extends their sincere appreciation to the staff of Hillcrest Village for the care they provided over the past 14 months, and to Dr. Sean Blundell and the compassionate nursing staff at the Georgian Bay General Hospital who cared for Don during his final days. A private family service will take place at a later date. Messages of condolence will be received by leclaircremationcentre.com . Memorial donations to Parkinson Canada (https://www.parkinson.ca/) would be greatly appreciated.
