Be the first to share your memories or express your condolences in the Guest Book for EDWARD CLIFFORD.
80, passed away peacefully on Saturday August 3, 2013 of COPD. He is survived by his beloved wife Guilda Dubé, by three children from a previous marriage to Holly LeGros (deceased): Diana, David (Michele Czech), Danita (Brad Morrison) and three grandchildren Nicholas, Jensa and Theodore. Ted was a passionate and talented man. He was best known as a journalist for The Globe and Mail, primarily for the Report of Business. Former Business editor Tim Pritchard said "Ted was a pro, and in the newspaper business that means he could tackle any story, cover all the bases, write it smartly and meet his deadline. He's the only employee I ever tried to rehire." Early retirement gave Ted a chance to pursue many unfulfilled dreams. He sang with barbershop choruses and travelled throughout North and South America and Europe. He earned a pilot's license following in the footsteps of his father and brother Ron. Friends are invited to visit at the St Laurent Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 1200 Ogilvie Road, (at Aviation Parkway) on Friday August 23 from 1pm until the time of the Memorial Service in the Chapel at 3pm. Donations to the Élisabeth-Bruyère Hospital would be appreciated by the family.
