Tribute

On Monday February 4, 2013, Mr. Norman Simpson Clark of Penticton died at the Haven Hill Retirement Centre at the age of 89 years, surrounded by his wife and children.

He was predeceased by his father Richard; mother Cora; brothers Jim, Alan and George; sisters Bessie Dyer and Ella Worley and parents-in-law William and Sarah Duncan.

Norman will be fondly remembered by his loving wife of 61 years, Lois; children Dale (Laurienne Ring) and Trudy (Doug) Thomson; grandchildren Dan (Melissa Calder) Clark, Sarah (Nicole) Clark-Morgan, Alex (Tianna) Thomson, Neil Thomson and Sydney Thomson as well as numerous well loved nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews and several great-grandnieces and nephews.

Over the years, he worked as a long time manager of Crescent Furniture in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, a farmer, a hospital orderly, worked in a planer mill, and as a farm implement salesman.  Upon retirement he drove school bus and became a full time house -husband.  Norman also proudly served in the RCAF during WWII as an air frame mechanic.

Norman and Lois loved to travel and spent 21 years wintering in Arizona plus made trips to places such as Hawaii, Mexico, Holland, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Greece, and all provinces in Canada.

He served on the Oliver United Church Board, was chairman of the board at Minto United Church, and was involved in Minto AOTS for many years.

Norm was an active sportsman all his life.  He played hockey and baseball as a young man, bowled, curled, golfed, and was playing bocci just last summer.  He was a fabulous dancer with his favourite dance partner, Lois.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 A.M. at the Oasis United Church, 2964 Skaha Lake Road, Penticton.  

Donations are gratefully accepted for the Desert Valley Hospice Society, PO Box 1261, Oliver, BC V0H 1T0.
