Clarence Henry (Harry) Stocker – Aug 6 1921 – Feb 06 2009 passed away suddenly at his home in Armstrong, B.C. at the age of 87. Left to mourn are his eight children, Glennis Kuhn ( John ), Marlene Conte ( Reno ), Dallas Stocker ( Linda ) all of Langley, Colleen Ribalkin ( Walt ) of Kelowna, Randy Stocker of Bellingham, Rita Hampton ( Bob ) of Aldergrove, Sandy Popoff ( Gerry ) of Armstrong and Carole Hall (Brian) of White Rock and our brother Rick Robinson (Wanda ) and their daughter Nicole, our step-brother Gordon Hunter (Nancy), and Clarence’s honorary daughter, Bonnie Bolton.
Dad was grandfather to 26 grandchildren and great grandfather to 57, and Uncle Clarence to numerous nieces and nephews. He was pre-deceased by his grandson Matthew Hampton, his nephew Jim Mills, his sisters Eve Mills and Gwen Oaks and his brothers Harold and Chris Stocker. Our dad loved his family, his friends, working in his workshop making his roller buddies, bird houses etc., playing his guitar and singing.
He loved spending his last 4 1/2 years in Armstrong with Sandy and Gerry and their family. Thanks Dad for coming into our lives.
Put me in your pocket, so I will be close to you.
No more will I be lonely, no more will I be blue.
And when we have to part dear, there will be no sad adieu,
For I’ll be in you pocket, and I will go along with you.
A Celebration of his Life will be held at a later date in his home town of White Rock.
In lieu of flowers donations in Dad’s memory may be made to the Vancouver Children’s Hospital.
