In Loving Memory of Clinton Bender, who passed away on October 1, 2021 at the age of 88 at the Anson General Hospital surrounded by his family.
Devoted husband of Therese Bender (Lefebvre) of 63 years. Caring father of Debbie (Lars) Hildebrandt, late Denise, and Diane (Steven) Beneteau. Cherished Grampa of Anya (Jesse) Cybolsky, Kyle (Terri) Hildebrandt, Ashley and Brandon Beneteau. Admired by his great grandchildren, Leah, Eden, Nikola and Milo. Will be remembered by his brothers and sister.
Clint was an avid outdoors man who had a passion for hunting and fishing. He began his career at the Abitibi Paper Company at the young age of 19. He also devoted many years of his life to the local volunteer fire department.
Clint was gifted with a vast amount of wisdom and knowledge in a variety of areas. His greatest passion was the ability to share his knowledge and creativity with his children and grandchildren.
« Grandpa was always able to fix anything. His garage was always a warm welcoming place, where we were able to share many great memories and laughs over a beer or two!”
As per Clint’s wishes cremation will take place, if desired In Memoriam Donations may be made to a local organization and would be greatly appreciated.
Relatives and friends are welcome to the Royal Canadian Legion on Thursday October 7, 2021 from 11am to 2pm followed by the interment at the Abitibi Cemetery in Iroquois Falls.
