Lionel (Clark) MITCHELL

July 16, 1935 – Feb. 8, 2011

Clark passed away in the Squamish Hospital after a lengthy stay in St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver.

He is survived by his loving wife Theresa, son Brian (Shannon) of Victoria, son Alan (Ambur) of Squamish, grandchildren Brittney, Makayla, Sofia, Liam, Grace, Rebecca, Lindsey; his sister Virginia (Walter) of 100 Mile House, his brother Ross (Cheryl) of Melbourne, Australia and numerous nieces and nephews.

Clark was born in Hardisty, Alberta, but spent most of his life in B.C., mainly in the Cariboo, where he met his wife. Clark was a ‘jack-of-all-trades’ and loved people. Two of his favourite pastimes were playing cards and playing his guitar, singing all of his Country and Western songs. He was a great dad, grandfather and a loving husband. He will be sadly missed by all.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to the doctors and staff at both St. Paul’s and Squamish hospitals for their kindness and compassion toward Clark and his family.

There will be no service by request.
