Giesbrecht - Clarence Wilfred. Jan. 19, 1920 - Nov. 26, 2011. Clarence went home to his Lord and Savior on Saturday, November 26, 2011. He will be missed here on earth by his devoted and loving wife of 67 years, Martha; his treasured children, Vernon (Jayne) of Ohio, Judy (Dennis) of Victoria, Howard (Sherr) of London, Ontario, Nancy (Chris) of Chilliwack; 9 beloved grandchildren, 18 treasured great grandchildren; one brother Harry of Saskatchewan and countless other family and friends from around the world who were blessed to know him. His legacy is one of faithfulness to and trust in Jesus. He served the Lord as Business Manager in Nigeria with the Sudan Interior Mission from 1950 to 1965. Following their return to Canada he worked in the insurance business and as town administrator in Dalmeny, Saskatchewan. Clarence and Martha retired to Abbotsford in 1986. It was from Abbotsford that their love of traveling the world continued their meeting with other missionaries, their work with the Gideons, and his playing golf or going bowling. He touched the lives of many people with his quiet unassuming generosity.
