In Loving Memory Of

Bernard Cleary


Bernard Cleary, resident of Grande Prairie, formerly of Calgary, passed away Saturday, February 17, 2018, at the age of 89 years, at QEII Hospital in Grande Prairie, AB.

He was born on April 8, 1928 in Assiniboia, SK.

Bernard worked on the family farm while growing up. At the age of 19, he moved to Ontario, where he worked on boats as part of a crew.
