here hath been dawning another new day. Think, will I let it slip useless away.
  • Born on July 11, 1951 in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.
  • Passed away on February 3, 2019 in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada.

Brian Thomas Clarke passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones, on February 3rd, 2019 in Cambridge, Ontario at the age of 67.

Brian is survived by the love of his life, his wife Terry, and his three adored sons: Darryl of Bowmanville, Jeremy (Natalie) of Owen Sound, and Adam (Tiffany) of Cambridge. Loving papa to Ellie, Carter, Cameron, and soon Reid. Survived by his siblings Rod (Mary Lou) of Kelowna, BC, Jeff (Jeanine) of Stratford, Ontario, and Lori Sheehy of Ottawa, Ontario, as well as their families. Cherished uncle to many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents, Thomas and Eloise Clarke of Stratford.

Brian was born on July 11, 1951 in Sarnia, Ontario. He graduated from Dr. G.W. Williams High School in Aurora, Ontario in 1970, and went on to study at Ryerson University. He married Terry in 1974 and they welcomed three sons in the happy years that followed. Brian’s faith meant a great deal to him. He was an active member of Meadowvale First Baptist Church in Mississauga for 30 years. Brian loved his family, and loved his friends. He played ball hockey regularly and loved to golf in the summer. There was nothing he loved better than a good laugh and a Tim Hortons coffee – preferably at the same time. 

Brian brought his friends and family together on January 26th to witness his personal testimony. Everyone who attended is thanked for their presence on this important night. It meant the world to Brian.  

A celebration of his life is scheduled for 1 pm on Friday, February 8th, 2019, at Forward Church (55 Franklin Blvd in Cambridge, Ontario). Please use the main entrance to enter the church. Donations in Brian's memory can be made to the Salvation Army.

What can we say about a man like our Father? You all knew him as the friend, the brother, the coworker, the avid golfer, the hockey player (who really had no business playing with guys a third of his age,) the deacon at Meadowvale First Baptist Church, the leader of Boys Brigade, the classmate from long ago, the supportive ear whenever you needed......, but we knew him simply....as Dad. A man who's children could do no wrong..... and believe me we tried! A man who spent every waking moment seeing the good in others. Even those who may not have deserved it. A man who loved his wife unconditionally and granted her every request. (Mom definitely pushed the envelope.) His unwavering love for his friends and family was apparent in every aspect of his life. His positive outlook even right to the very end was the stuff of legends. He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. Sleep well Dad ❤

How can sum up Brian.He meant so much to me.When I was going thru cancer he would call me when I was sick after chemo.He never let me feel sorry for myself.He was like my brother he was always sorting me out.He would make me laugh all day when we worked together.He was an amazing man who loved his family so much and his granddaughter.Before she was born I always said she would wrap him so tight around her finger.One of the last post Brian was waiting for the bus because Ellie liked to ride the bus.There is a hole in my heart that will never will be filled again.Im not going to say goodbye but until we meet again my dearest friend.I Will certainly miss you.Love Aubrey and Angela.

My deepest condolences to the family especially the 3 brothers who I have known for my entire life. I remember going to the zoo with you guys and your Dad as part of a church outing. Might have been 12 years old or in that area. I will always remember your Dad as a very kind man and he has instilled his kindness, humor and moral values in all 3 of you brothers. He will always live through each of you wonderful men. Rest in peace Brian......
