Clinton Oliver Dalshaug born on Sept 4 1925 in Saskatoon Sask to Palmer Justin Dalshaug and Rachel Lillian (Cooper) Dalshaug . Clinton attended Westmount School in Saskatoon for grades one and two. In 1933 the family moved to Margo where he completed public school. In 1944 he attended normal school in Saskatoon then left in March of 1945 to teach in the Sheho area. At the end of the school year he left realizing that teaching was not for him. On July 18 1947 he was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart Muriel Mclelland. They moved to Flin Flon Manitoba where they resided for 18 months. They then returned to the farm where they farmed for ten years. In 1959 Clinton enrolled in the Psychiatric Nurse’s program in North Battleford where he graduated in 1962. After working for 2 years in North Battleford they moved to Yorkton where Clinton worked at the Yorkton Psychiatric Hospital, which was the first hospital in North America to have an open door policy. In 1968 he transferred to the Yorkton Union Hospital as a medical social worker where he worked until retirement in 1988.
In his youth Clinton was known as an avid hockey player playing with the Invermay Imperials of the Fishing Hockey League and the Saskatchewan Hospital League. He continued to play recreational hockey until he was in his early 50s. He coached in Yorkton Minor sports for a number of years before turning to reffing. After retirement he took up 5 pin bowling switching to Wii sports in the last 8 years, winning the Seniors Games Trophy in Bowling in Saskatoon. In his later years Clinton enjoyed taking trips to visit children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He had some of his best times visiting his family and made it known to all how proud he was of his sons.
