Clarence Arthur

June 24, 1936 – Dec. 16, 2006

Clarence passed away suddenly

leaving behind his loving wife

of 43 years, Holly; his children

Leonard (Shelley) File; Heather

File and Kitty File (Wayne

Hall); his grandson Chad;

granddaughter Bonnie and

great granddaughter Rayne. He

was predeceased by his mother

and father but is also survived

by his brother Jim (Ruth) File;

sisters Sharon File and Cheryl

Sturt and step-brother Bryan

(Judy) Sturt. Clarence came to

the Cariboo in 1962 to work

at the Flying U Guest Ranch

as a ranch hand. In 1963, he

convinced his girlfriend to come

and work at the ranch for a few

months before she was to enlist

in the Navy. After only a few

months of serious courting, they

were married in Enderby, B.C.

on Sept. 7, 1963. In the years

to follow, Clarence was a ranch

hand, mill worker, faller/bucker

and father. He could be abrasive

and stubborn and more than a

little accident-prone. He loved

children and he had a heart of

gold and would never turn down

anyone that needed a hand. He

was always looking to play a

game of crib or a board game or

just sit and read a good western

novel. He will be missed by

his friends and family, but he

will never be forgotten. At this

present time, there will not be

a service, but there will be a

celebration of life in June for

those who would like to attend.
