Obituary for Cliff Collard

Cliff Collard
After travelling the long Alzheimer's road for the last few years, Cliff passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the Brantford General Hospital on Saturday April 1, 2017 at the age of 78. Loving life partner and husband of Cathy (Kate) for 54 years. Proud father to Dianne Morrison (Lorne), Jenny Schultz (Lee), and Jamie Collard (Leslie). Much loved Papa to Zack, DJ, Erik and Aaron. Brother of George Court (Dolly), Tom Collard (Belle) and Marg Vander Wal (the late Randy). Predeceased by Phyllis Marsh (Ken), Nellie Read (Art) and infant Robert. A constant tease to many nieces and nephews.

Cliff was a hands-on man who could fix anything and spent 50 years working at Brantford Paper Box. Cliff and Cathy enjoyed the local racing scene and spent over 50 years in “the pits” with a variety of racing teams. His greatest acquisition was his 1950 Dodge which he restored with the help of Jamie and Lee. He was so proud when Jamie shared his love of racing and became a Midget, then a Sprint Car driver. In 1972 Cliff and Cathy built a home (with the help of many friends and relatives) on Etonia Road and have enjoyed being a part of that small community. Cliff was a member, steward and “jack-of-all-trades” at Etonia United Church.

Thanks to Dr. McNeil and The Alzheimer's Society for all their guidance and support. Gratitude galore to the staff and new friends that were made at Park Lane (Sunrise Court) for looking after Cliff's needs for the last 4 months.

Friends will be received at the Keith Ovington Funeral Home, 134 King Street, Burford on Friday from 6-9 p.m. A celebration of life service will be held at the Etonia United Church, 101 Hwy 2, Princeton on Saturday April 8, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. followed by a farewell feast. As expressions of sympathy, donations in Cliff’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Brant or Etonia United Church. Keith Ovington 519-449-1112.

A quiet and fun loving man.
