Obituary  -  Avis de décès

Clarence (Clare) McKerrow

August 9, 1919  -  March 24, 2014

 
 

 

Clarence (Clare) McKerrow

 

 

Died peacefully at his residence at the age of 94 after a long and full life. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Betty in 2005.

 

Was greatly loved by his sons Ronald (Leslie) and David (Ann) and a proud grandfather to Ashley and Kenneth.

 

The family appreciates the care and support from his personal care worker, Mussie, the staff at the Duke of Devonshire, and all the health care professionals who have attended to his needs.

 

Clare settled in Ottawa in 1942, worked in wartime signals intelligence where he met his wife, and was the third employee of the Defence Research Board in 1946.

 

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date at the City View United Church. For those who wish to do so, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or Prostate Cancer Canada would be appreciated.

 

 

Hello:

Clarence McKerrow, father of Ron and Dave McKerrow, passed away peacefully on March 24, 2014.  There will not be a funeral but there will be a memorial service to be announced late in April.  Attached is a copy of the obituary that will be published March 29.
 

I have included a photo of our mother, Betty McKerrow, who met my father in WW II signals intelligence work.  They enjoyed a very happy marriage of 59 years until her death in 2005.
 

I am also including a few other photos?..

Clare was one of the senior operators at the Ottawa Monitoring Station when I joined that group in 1942.  When we returned to Ottawa in the 1960's we met again, usually at Church functions - he was in the City Vieww UC choir while we attended Carleton Memorial UC.  Another Silent Key in the list of old friends.
