It is with sad hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our much loved Dad, PAPA, and friend. Dad recently celebrated his 90th B-day. He followed that up with a fun loved week fishing trip in Whale Channel with his 2 Sons.
Full of energy and with a great love of life to the end, He continued with his passions for golf, fishing painting, spending time wth family and friends. Most recently his neighbors watched him drive his new blue toy about town.
Clare was born July 2nd, 1920 in Winnipeg and grew up with siblings, Walter, Trev, Albert, Gordon and Mary. He was a Sergeant in the Air Force during WWII. , returning to work at Union packing before settling into a long career in Commercial Real Estate with Great West Life Assurance Co. He retired from Management and moved to Oliver in 1984.
Clare was predeceased by his 1st wife Elma, in 1973 and more recently by his loving wife of 35 years Marg, in December of 2009.
Clare will be forever loved by his family which includes his son Garth Fordyce(wife Heather, Grandchildren Tannis and Trevor), daughter Kerry Davidson(husband Les, grandchildren Kahla, Jade and Ford), Marg’s son Warren Hodgins(wife Linda), daughter Denise(grandchildren Michelline, Christopher, and Travis).
Clare will also be lovingly remembered by extended members of the Fordyce, Davidson, McCool, Hodgins, Boleychuk, Murray and Gartner families. He will be missed by his many cherished friends in Oliver.

Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Service Staff send our condolences to family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

From: Garth T. Fordyce
Relation: Son

Thank you, Dad ! There were so many times when you came through in your own supportive and quiet way, all be it for a family member, a close friend or a neighbor, not expecting to receive any thanks for what you may have done or said. Likewise, there were so many times when you were there for another in need to lean on and to perhaps learn from your life long experiences. You were always eager to listen to others and to give them your unconditional love, friendship and support, as the case may be. You possessed a kind and gentle spirit for which all who knew you will be forever grateful. Yours was a life which was well lived and well loved. Yours is a life that will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing you. Words cannot begin to express how much Kerry and I love and miss you. Farewell my Father and my Friend – I cherish the day when we will be re-united. Until then, I will cherish your smile, your warm heart and the memories of the many things which you and I were able to do together. Your loving son, Garth !
