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.

As a daughter of a war amputee I was raised to look up to Mr. C. especially regarding the CHAMP program. When my dad became senile in 1986 and we couldn't get the proper care for him, I called Mr. C's office and it didn't take long that my dad started receiving the entitled care. Again from the bottom of my heart I say THANK YOU. My deepest sympathy to the family.

My heartfelt condolences to the family. I remember Mr. C fondly from my time at The Waramps as the best story-teller around, and one memorable Halloween as "Captain Canada"! He will be warmly remembered by all those whose lives he touched.

Nina, my sincere condolences. Mr. C was a wonderful person and I feel privileged to have been able to work with him at The War Amps. Much love.

Thank you to Nina and the family for sharing Cliff with us all. Behind every great man is a loving and supportive family. Because of your generosity, our lives and many others have been touched.
