Peacefully on January 11, 2022, at the age of 92 Alphonse Clement passed on to his eternal father.
He was predeceased by his parents; his daughters, Jeanette and Michelle; and his son Gerry. He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Pauline; his son Raymond (Laurel); his daughters, Sharon (Barry) Pattern, and Sandra (Darren) Bencharski; his grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and also his sister Doris and his brother Art (Cathy).
Al was a great husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend. He loved his family and was happiest when surrounded by a big crowd. He could strike up a conversation with anyone anywhere. He had a great sense of humour, and family and friends have many fond memories of "Pa's jokes."
Cremation has taken place and a private family celebration will occur later this year.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Children's Wish Foundation gratefully accepted.

We love you Dad
Forever in our hearts
