Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Clarence's family at this difficult time. Chuck (Clarence) and I joined Army Cadets together way back in the mid-fifties where we met Don Lewis and we became the three musketeers sharing many memorable times together. From cadets we ventured on to the Winnipeg Grenadiers. After leaving Winnipeg due to employment I lost touch with Chuck and Gwen but reconnected later on when they visited Calgary. Later on he came out to visit us in Airdrie and we enjoyed some camping and even New Years Eve. We know he will be sorely missed by his family and "The Three Musketeers". - Posted by: Donald George Pike (Friend) on: Jul 09, 2019
