Clarence Wentzell

Obituary of Clarence Kenneth Wentzell

79, Sambro, June 14, 1940-July 26, 2019. 

Clarence worked in the fishing industry in Sambro, starting at the age of 15.  That twinkle in his eye and his mischievous smile will be forever missed by all that knew and loved him. The family has many fond memories of Clarence’s wit and sense of humour, the fun times had during many years of family camping starting in tents and moving on to trailers and then to cottage life, and countless games of crib and other card games over the years.

Clarence is survived by his loving companion and best friend of over 50 years, Sylvia (Gilkie) Schnare.  He is also survived by his half-brother, Johnny (Claire) Marryatt and their children, David (Tanya) Marryatt and Leigh Marryatt; and all of Sylvia’s children, Vance (Yvonne) Schnare, Marlene (Roger) Ryer, Sharon (David) Garrison, Terry (Heather) Schnare, Chris Schnare, and special daughter-in-law, Anna (Slaunwhite) Duggan; grandchildren, Leslie Harnish, Heather Garrison, Holly Hunt, Amanda Gilkie, Kim Ryer, Kevin Ryer, Twyla Coolen, Vernon Schnare, and Earle Schnare; and 12 great grandchildren. 

He was predeceased by his mother, Lottie Mae (Wentzell) Marryatt; uncle, Manson Wentzell; grandparents, Charles and Clara Wentzell; half-brother, Bruce Marryatt; step-son, Leonard Gilkie. Arrangements are under the care of J. Albert Walker Funeral Home (2005) Ltd.  A private family service will take place at a later date.  Donations in memory of Clarence can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
