John Ernest Clift

July 23, 1944 – October 5, 2011

I have only slipped away into the next room

I am I and you are you… whatever we

were to each other that we are still.

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my loving husband, John Ernest Clift, after a courageous battle of cancer.

John is survived by his loving wife Christine, stepdaughter Sandra (Kiall) and three adorable grandchildren. Sister, Sally Smaha, nephew Larry (Liz) and grandnephew Sheldon Smaha.

Predeceased by his mother Eileen Clift, father Everett Clift, Stepmother Marion Clift and son Anthony Everett Clift, brother-in-law John (Jack) Smaha and niece Leah Owens.

John believed – Give kindness, receive joy – Manners are the fruit of a loyal nature and a noble mind.

No funeral service by request.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation or Canadian Cancer Society.
