    We are very sorry for your loss. Bob remembers being coached by Clarence. He remembers the sign that Clarence gave to his players by touching his belt buckle to let them know his next sign was coming. Bob has very fond memories.
    We are thinking of you.

  2. Jeff and Sue Agar

    Sending our thoughts and sympathies to you all. Jeff and I enjoyed our time spent with Clarence at Thompson Gardens….he was quite the bingo player and he certainly will be missed. What a legacy he has left behind.

  3. My condolences to all the McLachlin family. It wasn’t that long ago I ran into your father/grampa at Timmys and had a nice conversation with him. My thoughts are with you.

  4. Briann & Nina Kelly

    Stephanie & Family…we were so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Grandfather. He sounded to be an amazing person.

    Our love and prayers from the entire Kelly Family.

  5. Rev. Janet Evans and Mike McQuaid

    We wish we could be with you at this time but you are in our hearts
    May your loved one rest in peace.

  6. Debbie and family:
    You may not remember me, but I am Keith Weese's daughter. Used to babysit you some year ago!
    So, so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. Crossed paths a few times at hockey games when we were taking Dad and he was always ready to chat and share what was going on in Corunna. We talked a lot about Corunna Minor Athletic Assoc. and how four of them were the founders. Have been trying to figure out a memorial in Corunna for all four of them. So perhaps we can work on this.
    Again, my deepest sympathies. Hugs,

  7. So sorry for your loss. Loved playing cards with your dad at Wellins on Monday afternoon. Grew up in Corunna with Joyce and Clarence .
