Van Den Broek, Clifford

 June 9, 1953 - January 17, 2023

Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, with loved ones at his side at Health Sciences North at the age of 69. Predeceased by his parents Donna (née Blaney) and John Van Den Broek as well as his sister Marge (Dave). Beloved husband of Bertha Ford and predeceased by his wife Debbie Polden. He sadly leaves behind his daughter Doris (Derrick) and granddaughter Victoria Lachapelle; his son Leonard (Lenny); stepdaughter Velma Kozachanko (Andy), grand daughters Iris & Audrey; his sister Annie (Gerry); brother John (Lynn); stepdaughter Christine, step grand daughter Tiffany (Cliff). His sister-in-law Debbie (John) and brother- in- law Ernie predeceased (Julie).

Clifford was a man with a full-size heart.  He loved animals and children as he was one himself. He retired as an Electrician in the mines. But his social need took him to sharing his time at Lowes. He had a strange sense of humor, but laughter is what he loved to do the most. Clifford kept you on your toes, as you never knew what he was going to say or do. Learned late in life the importance of the adventure and was willing to try and go anywhere. He became quite the outdoorsman, who loved to fish, hunt, take in the fresh air and sit by a fire.
