  • I will always have the most wonderful memories of my Uncle Clare , from my earliest childhood memories of him to my most recent ones , he never seemed to change ! He always took interest in your family and what everyone was doing in life . He helped me to find and purchase my first car on my own and taught me how to drive a standard …15 min of calm and detailed instructions and then sent me on my way home from Tillsonburg to Delhi , and I made it ! He always let you squeeze in a picture with him and a few hugs and I will miss his jovial little laugh . He was kind, he was a gentleman and he was loved by all our family . Rest peacefully Uncle Clare Love Maria 💕
