Wish we could be there with you to say goodbye, we will be thinking off you all. Love Liz (cousin it) Ryan and Keri xx

    Dear Pat, Ewan and Cindy.
    So sad to hear the news about dear Nobby! Such a genuinely lovely man , always with a joke and smile whenever we met! Such an interesting man… always with a lot of knowledge to impart! How we loved to be in his company, never more so than when we spent that lovely holiday with Nob and you Pat on our adventure on the Rocky Mountaineer from Banff to Vancouver!
    Wonderful memories of a very special man! God bless and give you all the strength you need at this difficult time! Difficult for those left behind , but probably what dear Nobby would have wished. Sending much love as always
    From Jan and Brian xxx

    Dear Pat, Ewan and family,
    Our heartfelt thoughts of sympathy are sent to you at this time. We have good memories of Nobby even though we only met you both when we moved here ten years ago (through the gardening community). He was a comedian and a gentleman. We hope it helps to know that others care and share your loss.

    May God bless you Ewan and your family.

  20. Cindy and Craig ( Melon),
    I was so saddened to hear of the loss of your father . Although I have not seen Nobby in many years, I have such wonderful memories of a sweet, kind and gentle man who tolerated the gaggle of giggling teenage girls routinely gathered at your house in Clarkson. My deepest sympathies to Cody ,Pat, Ewan and the entire Clarke family .

  21. Les and family x

    To the whole family, thinking of you all at this sad time, sorry we can’t be there to say goodbye but will be raising a glass in his memory, stay strong. X

  23. Craig and Family

    May the beautiful thoughts of your Father,

    of caring friends help you through this sad time.
