Clarence (Ted) Lightfoot
We are sad to announce the death of our father Clarence Lightfoot who passed away on November 12th, 2013 at the Dr. Andrew Pavillion in Summerland, B.C. at the age of eighty. Clarence was born July 28th, 1933 in Toronto, Ontario to Margaret (nee Morgan) and William Lightfoot. His wife Ethel (Tillie), parents, and siblings Bill, Allan, Norman and Beatrice predeceased him. Clarence joined the military at a young age and made it a 25 year career. He was proud to be a veteran of the Korean War. After his final military posting in Shilo, Manitoba, he went on to security management at Simplot in Brandon, Manitoba. Retirement brought him and his wife Ethel (Tillie) to Summerland, which they both grew to love for its natural beauty and warm summers. Clarence liked to keep up with the news and events around him and enjoyed long scenic drives and trips to the States with our Mom. He maintained his sense of humor and optimism even when faced with his challenging health issues. Clarence leaves behind his daughter April Reese(Ed) in Calgary and his son Jim Lightfoot (Cathy) and granddaughter Genevieve in Saltspring. Clarence chose cremation and his urn will be placed at the Columbarium at Brandon Cemetery where he will join his beloved wife Ethel (Tillie).
Family will hold a private memorial service at a later date.
