May 11, 1921 – December 22, 2004
A big tree fell in Laidlaw today,
It was Evan Clarke who passed away.
83 years old – his heart said “no more”,
A heart that was honest and
true to the core.
He had nieces and nephews and a step-daughter too,
Her name is Sandra Morgan, who’s feeling so blue.
Gary Economy was his handsome step-son,
David, Tiffany and Adam loved him a ton.
He was Julie Corbett’s old, old friend,
And Bailey his dog loved him right to the end.
Cyril and Henry had him as their man,
And we’ll all soon join him in Heaven’s sweet land.
