Dear Sarah, Spencer and family,

My brother Don, was a very humorous and interesting man. This was evident in his life. He loved and enjoyed his family. During our visits with him and telephone conversations he was always prideful about his Orangeville connections.
May he now rest in peace and remembrance. He will be sadly missed by all and by his facebook and e-mail connections.
Love, Uncle Grant & Nadine

Full of ideas and energy. Always willing to help people who needed. Spent a great deal of time with both Don and Grant growing up in Orangeville.The Fire Department was his priority in younger days.

Condolence from Judy McCrea on February 2nd, 2015 7:15 pm

I’m very sorry to hear of this. He was a neighbour of my Grandmother Allan’s on Parson St., he taught me swimming lessons at the Orangeville pool, and was a colleague of my Dad’s (Bill Noble) at the Walker & Brown Service Station and the Orangeville Fire Department. He was always such a character and made people smile. RIP Don/Clarkie. Our sympathies to the Clarke family.

Condolence from Sandy Edwards (nee Noble) on February 4th, 2015 8:39 am

I just heard about Don’s passing. I’m so sorry to hear of this. It was such a character. I reconnected with him on FB. He and my father (Bill Noble) had some great stories. He was a lovely man and I will miss his chats and posts on FB.

My sincere condolences to the Clarke family during this difficult time.
