Thank you to the doctors and nurses who helped our Dad including Dr. Morrey, Dr. O’Dea, and Dad’s nurses Elizabeth and Loretta, who was ironically a guardian angel for Clarence during his time in the Miller Center. Also, thank you to the ambulance drivers who respectfully drove our dad passed the National War Memorial in St. John’s. Our Dad had many interests. He was an avid reader, a loyal Toronto Maple Leafs hockey fan, and an obsessive salmon fisherman. Later in life Dad could be found in a rink cheering his grandsons on and being one of their biggest supporters. During the last weeks of his life Dad always said he wanted to be in his “happy place”, casting his rod on the Northwest River in Trepassey, catching an elusive salmon.
