Passed away peacefully on Friday, December 26, 2014 at the Sun Parlor Home. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Dorothy (Nead). Loving father of Carol Marshman, London, Donna Bethune (Don), St. Thomas, Jean Stewart (John), Harrow, Joyce Step (Martin), Kitchener, Dale Kimball (Tina), Harrow and Todd Kimball (Meiju), Edmonton. He was the cherished grandfather of 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Survived by his brothers Orval Kimball (Vida), Morley Kimball (Joan) and Stanley Kimball. Predeceased by his siblings Marjorie, Velma, Helen and Melvin and by his parents, Ernest and Lerina. Clifford will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews. Clifford was a farmer, first and foremost, on the family farm near Wheatley. His family business also included field tiling many farms in Essex and Kent counties. After retiring from farming, Clifford and Dorothy moved to a home in Leamington where he became a member of the Leamington Half Century Club. Clifford’s happiest moments in retirement included playing pool and euchre with his friends at the Club and working in his woodworking shop in the back yard. Clifford built things, invented things, broke things (sometimes parts of his own body) and just made things work. Special thanks to the staff of the Sun Parlour Home for their compassion and tender care. There will be a private family memorial service.
