HOPE, Clifford Edward  - September 19, 1945 - April 18, 2019

Surrounded by love, Cliff passed away peacefully at home after a long and unrelenting battle with ALS.

There was no way he was going down without a fight, but five years of struggle have come to an end and he is finally at peace. 

Loving husband to Millie, dad to Cliff Jr (Nadine), stepdad to Sarah and Annika and Grampa to Evelyn, Garret, Jadon, Simeon, Malaya, Milo, Mathias and Stella.

Cliff will be remembered for the inspiration he gave to so many other ALS patients, for his determination not to give up and for the thankfulness and love he showed right to the end. His trusty ALS service dog, Manny, brought joy to every day. 

We will all miss Cliff, but thank God for the courage we have been given to make this journey together.  Rest eternal grant unto him and let light perpetual shine upon him. 

The family will receive friends on Thursday, April 25, 2019 from 6:30 till 8:30 p.m. at the McEachnie Funeral Home, Ajax.  A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, April 26, 2019 at Grace Anglican Church, 19 Parkway Ave. in Markham.
