    We regret to advise of the death of Sapper Clarence Henry “C.B.” Bolton of Flin Flon MB on 3 December 2004 at the Flin Flon Personal Care Home at the age of 76 years.

    Clarence was born in the Shoal Lake area and spent many of his formative years living in Rossburn. He served in the Royal Canadian Engineers in Winnipeg and various locations in Germany during his service from 1951 until 1954.

    After his release from the army, Clarence worked at the pulp and paper mill in Dryden ON. In 1955, he married and moved to Flon Flon where he spent the rest of his life. In Flin Flon, he worked as a machinist at Hudson Bay Mining & Smelting and retired in August 1987. Throughout his life, he was active in the community and the local Legion branch. He was a Life Member of the Royal Canadian Legion and served as President and houseman. 

    A Legion service and funeral for Clarence was held on 8 December at the chapel of the Dadson Funeral Home with the Legion Padre and President leading. Following the service, the Legion Ladies’ Auxiliary served lunch at the Legion Hall. If friends so desire, tributes in Clarence Bolton's memory may be made to the Manitoba Heart and Stroke Foundation.
