Davey, Clark William
March 3, 1928 – February 25, 2019
After a few days in hospital, surrounded by family, Dad passed away
peacefully. He was a doting husband, father, grandfather and a champion of Canadian journalism. He is survived by his devoted wife of 66 years, Joyce Davey (nee
Gordon). Dearly loved father of Richard (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr.
(Shelley Grist). Dad will be greatly missed by his grandchildren Michael, Kira, Stephen, Jason,
Nicole and Christian. Dad is survived by his brother Kenneth George Davey. Dad
will be missed by his several nieces and nephews, and a wide circle of
friends. Dad never forgot where he was from: growing up in Chatham, Ont, in a family that
struggled to put food on the table during the Depression. This kept him grounded
and motivated to strive harder and reach higher. Dad succeeded magnificently
with elegance, grace and vision, guided by an unshakeable set of principles.
We are so proud of his professional accomplishments but he’s so much more to his
family and friends. His eagerness to spin a yarn, his puckish sense of humour,
his delight at a clinking glass at cocktail hour at Who Cares Manor, endless
piles of books and always searching to understand more about the endless
twists and surprises in the political arena. Friends are invited to a Celebration of Life at the Westboro Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 403 Richmond Road. (at Roosevelt) on Friday March 1, between 2-5:00 p.m. Shared memories and speeches at 4 p.m.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Clark William Davey March 3 1928 February 25 2019 (age 90)..
