Joanne accompanied me for Rememberance day ceremony at the cemetery Lots of tears Put redd roses on the grave.
I haven't been directed to this website since December but I am glad to see that there are still postings to this. I was hoping to find out when the Memorial for Uncle Cliff was going to be, if it hasn't already passed.
It was 95th birthday on the 9th of May, 2014. We visited the grave, sleep well our darling Cliff. Nina and Sandy.
Dear friends, thank you very very much for your sympathy towards Cliff's passing away. I found this page only recently, but better late than never.
Dear Chadderton Family,

My sincere sympathies at this very sad time. Cliff was a remarkable man, with such a big heart and a remarkable legacy to have left behind with his dedication to The War Amps.

My mother's comments(Andrea Seim Blackburn Thompson)left early on in the guest book echo much of the sentiment I also share.

My grandfather (George G Blackburn) and Cliff's friendship was clearly a dear one to them both, and to our whole family as well.

Their memories were many, and cherished, from wartime all the way to the years nearing my grandfather's passing.

Cliff was one of my grandfather's dearest supporters at a time his books were still being written (over a decade of researching and writing involved in that trilogy The Guns of Normandy; The Guns of Victory and Where The Hell Are The Guns?) and I know Cliff's support and encouragement meant to world to my grandfather.

He was such a kind, gracious, warm man, whom I know you will miss dearly, as will all who knew him.

May his dear, wonderful soul rest in peace.

My mother also worked at the War Amps for many years as she is now retired. He was an amazing boss and friend to my mother Loise Cooke. I knew him to be a quiet man very happy and always smiling. May he rest in peace Lorna Munday
I am deeply saddened to hear of Cliff's passing. He was an exceptional man who helped so many people. I had the privilege of working with him when the Champ Program was formed and am forever indebted to him for helping me find a new life after losing my arm and leg. My heartfelt condolences to Brian and all of Mr. Chadderton's family.
Dear Nina, Bill, Brian, and all the family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. On behalf of the whole Blackburn family, please accept our heartfelt condolences.

I learned of Cliff's passing from my brother, Ron, who phoned to let me know. Ron was "Uncle" Cliff's godson

After the War, our families shared good times together, and my first recollection of "Uncle Cliff" was in a parade after the war, when my Dad (George Blackburn) introduced my mother and me to him; he was sitting in a wagon, behind a mule, with the reins in his hands -- happy, friendly, and outgoing -- he always had a huge smile for us all.

In the summer, he would travel down the Rideau River in his beautiful motorboat, from his cottage on the Rideau River to our cottage, and pick us up to take us out for a nice ride in his boat -- to the total delight of us kids (myself and my brothers, Mark and Ron!)

In the Beatles era, my brother, Mark, and Cliff's son, Brian, both played rhythm guitar, and sang, in a band called, "The Suspects".

Many is the time Cliff would come to our home and Dad and he would share the most incredible war-time stories. They kept my mother, my brothers, and me spell-bound.

Later, both men would write of their war time memories (Dad with his "The Guns of Normandy", "The Guns of Victory" and "Where the Hell are the Guns?" and Cliff, with his incredibly long list of productions, while he was directing the operations of the War Amps.

The Blackburn family felt very close to the Chaddertons, and those of us Blackburns who still remain alive will always treasure our memories of this wonderful man, Cliff Chadderton, who dedicated his life for the benefit of so many.

He has touched the lives of literally thousands of Canadians.

We will forever hold his memory dear.

To all the Chadderton family, please accept our deepest sympathy, and know that we stand beside you all in spirit, and feel the sad loss of this incredible man very deeply, indeed.
