webSamson, ClarenceOn July 6, 2013 we lost a great and generous man. It is with sorrowful hearts we announce the loss of our Dad at the age of 81 years. He has passed on to eternal life after a brave 3-year battle, having succumbed to lung cancer. Loving husband of the late Joyce (nee Jeffrey)(2007) and supportive, reliable father of Dave (June, 2013)(Yvette), Danny (Shirley), Diane Siemon (Dennis), Donna Moise (Denis), Debbie Deslippe (2006)(Ray) and Darlene Filliault (Jeff). Forever remembered by his 9 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Predeceased by siblings Pete, Frank, Lawrence, Marie and Eva and survived by his devoted sisters Louise and Eileen and many nieces and nephews. Dad retired after 31 years at GM Trim Plant and was a proud CAW member. Family was of the utmost importance and Dad was always there with supportive words, lending an ear or a tool in his hand. Many thanks to CCAC, VON and the nurses at Malden Park for their wonderful care. If you so desire, donations to the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre Foundation would be appreciated by the family. Visiting Tuesday 3-5 and 7-9p.m. Funeral Wednesday at 11:30am at Families First Funeral Home & Tribute Centre (519-969-5841) 3260 Dougall Ave. Interment at Heavenly Rest Cemetery.
