Obituary of Clifford William Deering


Clifford William Deering 

December 3, 1955 – July 22, 2021 







It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that Craig, Simon, and I announce that our beloved Cliff, at the age of 65, has left the building. Husband, Father, Grandfather, friend, lover, confidante, provider, athlete, handyman and modifier extraordinaire…Cliff was all that and more.  His passing will leave a void in our hearts and in our lives that will last forever. 


Along with his immediate family, wife of 30 years Krista and sons Craig (April), and Simon (Lindsay) and three grandchildren Cameron, Heather, and Raymond. Cliff leaves behind his two brothers Garfield and Gordon and his sister Christine and their families. 


Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland December 3, 1955, Cliff has led a vibrant and active life. From playing golf (right up to the week before his death) and hockey, to cruising Georgian Bay in Ontario, and in the Virgin Islands, owning a property in the Dominican Republic to his and Krista’s latest adventure, which is a horse farm in New Germany, Nova Scotia, Cliff has never been one to shy away from new experiences.  Cliff was always willing to lend a helping hand to friends and neighbours. Both Craig and Simon’s friends growing up often relied on Cliff to help them out of a pickle. Loved by many, Cliff was one of the good ones and will be missed terribly.  


Arrangements have been entrusted to Sweeny’s Funeral Home, 4895 Highway 10, New Germany.  A private family graveside service will be held in Indian Brook Cemetery, Barss Corner, Rev Catherine Robar officiating.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.  Online condolences and donations may be made by visiting
