Clarence (Clem) John Froess was born in Carmel, Saskatchewan on August 12, 1938. He passed away with his family by his side at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on November 19th, 2015 at the age of 77.
He will lovingly be remembered by his wife Margaret; his two sons, Jim of Enderby and Bob (Nancy) of Kamloops, and daughter Karen (Thomas) of Enderby, his brothers Dick of Vernon, Dave (Beth) of Salmon Arm, his sister
Edna (Dave) Jackson of Blue Ridge, Alta, his sister-in-law Luella of Kitimat and numerous nieces and nephews.
During his lifetime, Clem worked as a faller, forklift operator, carpenter and a farmer. He liked to participate in local sports, playing ball and old timer hockey. Most of all, he had a passion for the outdoors and enjoyed camping, fishing, snowmobiling and hiking with friends (and pancake breakfasts).
He will always be known for his ability to work hard, his willingness to help, and his boyish grin.
A memorial mass will be held on Saturday, November 28th at 11:00 a.m. at St. Ann’s Catholic Church, Enderby B.C. with Father Tony Ackerman, Celebrant. Reception to follow.
