Gordon Clarry - February 12, 2022

I have great memories of Uncle Art. I remember Catchacoma - mostly through family movies - although I recall after a cross lake trip to get ice cream I dropped mine in the lake getting out of the boat at the cottage!!! I remember Francine well and our playing on the dirt piles surrounding the house because Uncle Art and Aunt Pat were among the first residents. But mostly I remember Uncle Art's great sense of humour and most importantly the interest he took in everybody. He truly wanted to know you and hear about you and your opinions. He was an amazingly curious and engaging person and I am proud to be able to call him my uncle. Rest in Peace Uncle Art. Gordon Clarry
