Clarence beloved husband of Shannon Kwok (Lee McGuin) of Calgary, AB, passed away on Friday, January 18, 2019 at the age of 65 years.
Clarence passed away peacefully with his family by his side at Foothill Hospital after a courageous battle with viral pneumonia.
Clarence was born in Hong Kong, China and immigrated to Canada at the young age of 22 with the help of his two older brothers, Simon and Dominic. A few short years later, Clarence moved to Prince Albert, SK where he started his career as a business owner and began to build his family. In 2012, Clarence was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer and shortly thereafter decided to move to Calgary with wife, Shannon to be closer to family and medical care.

His eagerness to help others, kind heart and unique sense of humour will be dearly missed.
