Obituary of Clifford Gordon Fiddler

Please share a memory of Clifford to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with profound sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of Clifford Gordon Fiddler.  Cliff was predeceased by his parents Eugene Fiddler and Eileen Gregory and his brothers, Herby G. Fiddler (Vi), and Leslie G Fiddler.  He leaves to morn his ex-wife and lifelong friend of over years 54 years, Geri Nolin-Guse (Doug), his three children, son Jason Fiddler (Karen), and two daughters Jennifer Fiddler-Phillips (Alex), and Tracey Fiddler, and his beloved grandchildren, Jeremy Phillips, Mikayla Fiddler, Kristanna Fiddler, Jayden Phillips, Evan Phillips, and Jesse Tennant. His three great-grandchildren Emma Ostendorf, Avalynn Colbert, and Kaylum Phillips, and his brother Wayne (Nancy) Fiddler of Kitchener Ontario. Nieces Shannon Fiddler-Davis (Kelsey) and Stacey Blokzyl (Paul), nephews Herby Sheldon Fiddler, and Todd Fiddler, along with numerous other relatives and friends.


At the time of his passing, Cliff was living his best life in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico as he has done every year since 2007.  Cliff worked for 35 years with the Ministry of Social Services for the Provincial Government enjoying a well-deserved retirement in 2004. However, it was not in his blood to completely retire, so Cliff became a part-time security guard at the Cranbrook Airport.  Cliff loved this job as he was able to see and talk to many of his friends.   Cliff enjoyed playing golf, camping, watching hockey and his Toronto Blue Jays, and all kinds of sports and movies on TV.  He loved music and spent much of his retirement sitting by a pool in Mexico listening to his favorite songs and sipping his favorite tequila, Don Roberto!  Cliff recently took up singing karaoke at his favorite bar in Puerto Vallarta, Café Roma and we can all say that he was pretty good.  Cliff loved being around his family having dinners, and drinks, playing cribbage and sharing many laughs.


A celebration of life for Cliff is set for Saturday, February 18 at the Eagles Nest, 715 Kootenay Street North, Cranbrook B.C. at 2 PM.  The immediate family will have a private funeral service to lay Cliff in his final resting place in Cranbrook B.C. later this year. Cliff touched many hearts during his time on this earth.  His sudden passing comes as a heartbreak to all of his family and friends.  He was loved by many, and his memory will always remain in our hearts forever.
