Peacefully, in the Palliative Care Unit of St. Vincent’s Hospital, Ottawa in his 86th year; Clayt passed away on Canada Day after a courageous battle from complications with Dementia.  “Dad, all of our hearts are so heavy with sadness now that you are gone but we take comfort knowing you are so much more at peace”.

He was the beloved husband for over 64 yrs. of Fay Kerr (“Ardella”, nee Desarmia) and cherished Dad of Cathy Bebee (Paul).

Clayt is survived by and will be sadly missed his sister, June (Doug) and his sisters-in-law: Doreen (Ernie Jr.) and Gay (Bev) along with many nieces and nephews.

A special thankyou goes out to The Ottawa Hospital (General Campus- ER & 6th. floor) for all their compassionate care and as well, very fondly, to the Palliative Care Unit of St. Vincent’s Hospital who made Dad’s last few weeks dignified, comfortable and peaceful. We will be forever grateful for you being there for him.
