CLIVE WILLIAM PERRY
June 23, 1948 - September 10, 2021

It is with great sadness that the family announce the passing of Clive William Perry on Friday, September 10, 2021, following a two year battle with cancer.
Clive leaves his wife of 50 years, Yvette; children, Rhys (Denisa), Lauren (Charles) and Adrienne (Scott); brother Mark; and grandchildren, Tereza, Alex, Eliette, Nathan and Will.
Clive lived life to the fullest and approached everything with passion and a sense of devotion. A member of the Winnipeg film industry and Winnipeg music industry in his early years, he later became a Structural Technician with Air Canada. In his private life, Clive's passions were in aviation and music, with him being a private pilot for 25 years and a drummer for over 50. Clive was a fiercely proud and supportive father and best friend to his loving wife, Yvette. He will be greatly missed by his family.
The family would like to thank Dr. Goldenberg and the team at CancerCare Manitoba, who supported Clive throughout his illness and never stopped trying to fight his cancer with him. As well, Dr. Crawford and Dr. Darcell and the palliative care team at St. Boniface Hospital who provided Clive with amazing care and compassion in his final weeks.
As per Clive's wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial. A private spreading of Clive's ashes will occur at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Yvette & family, My thoughts are with you at this very difficult time. I only recently had the good fortune to meet Clive. That is all the time anyone would need to know Clive was a stellar person. Please take solace in the fact that he is now flying high with the angels watching over him. - Posted by: Murray Auld (Fellow pilot) on: Sep 19, 2021

  • Dear Yvette and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I only met Clive this year, through flying at Lyncrest, but that meeting was a joy, and his optimism was contagious, and storytelling was wonderful. I was very much looking forward to flying with him and getting to know him better, and hearing more stories. I know how hard it is to lose loved ones, I hope you all will be able to take joy in remembering the many wonderful memories you have, and hold on to those as you grieve his loss. Sending love and blue skies to you all, Elly - Posted by: Elly Boersema (Friend) on: Sep 19, 2021

  • Our deepest condolences to Yvette and family. Don and Debbie Rose - Posted by: Debbie Rose (Friend) on: Sep 19, 2021

  • Clive was a “renaissance man”, successful in every area of endeavour. Many of you knew him as a drummer (“The Shags” with Greg Leskiw and Bill Merritt), a broadcaster (CJRL, CKY, CKRM), a recording engineer (Finucan Productions, Fred Penner, Crash Test Dummies), a pilot and aviation mechanic (Air Canada), a naturist or a husband of 50 years with three great kids and five grandchildren. I knew Clive as all of those things. I have known Clive for 56 years. We have shared many adventures and travelled together extensively throughout North America, the Caribbean and Europe. He and his family have shared every major event with me and mine: weddings, births, funerals, joy and sorrow. Clive told me before he passed that a three week 6,500km flight he took with me across the USA in 1997 was a highlight of his life! One that he might skip the next time! 🤣 I had the chance to say goodbye to Clive on his last day. I was very proud to be his friend. I will miss him a lot. Till we meet again. Godspeed. - Posted by: Michael Gillespie (Friend) on: Sep 18, 2021

  • I was saddened to learn of his cancer and passing and my heart goes out to Yvette and family. I worked with Clive many years ago and never had a chance to thank him for giving me a good grounding in sound production. He taught me how to use my ears and under his guidance, I learned to love razor blades and splicing tape. He is the reason I still press record. - Posted by: Rick Kraus (Colleague) on: Sep 18, 2021
