Obituary for Clinton John Lee

July 13, 1978 – June 2, 2020

It is with great sadness to announce the sudden passing of Clint Lee on Tuesday, June 2, 2020.

Clint was a hard worker and loved to work. It could be anything from working on the farm to working on the rigs; no matter what it was, he always put in 100% and did it with a smile on his face. He was so proud to be a roughneck. Clint never worked alone, he always had his best friend Lucy with him and after her passing his new best friend, Cooper. Both those dogs were part of the crew and there was no telling Clint any different.

Clint had a way with animals, and it did not matter if it was a dog, a cow, or even a farm cat. Animals adored him and he adored them. He liked animals more than people most days.

Clint was a proud father. His beautiful baby girl that has his mesmerizing blue eyes was his pride and joy. He made sure Sam had her own set of coveralls to match her dad before she could even walk.

Clint was an excellent stepfather to Connor and Chloe. Soccer games, 4H projects, football practices, girl’s night face masks and pedicures, Clint did it all.

Clint was the best man anyone could ask for. He would give you the shirt off his back and would do anything for anyone.

Clint will be greatly missed by his daughter Samantha, mother Marilyn (Henry) Glasgo, father Barry (Laura) Lee, his partner Jennifer Bateman, his stepchildren Connor and Chloe Bateman, as well as numerous friends, family, coworkers.

If you would like to spend some time and say goodbye to Clint, viewing will be held at Bear Creek Funeral Home on Sunday, June 7, 2020 from 5-7pm.

A graveside service will be held at Valhalla Cemetery on Friday, June 12, 2020 at 3:00 PM.

Condolences

I have known Clint and Jenn these past 4 years as next door neighbours. Clint always greeted us with a big smile and kind words. We enjoyed visits with Clint in our garage having a cool one to settle the dust after a hard days' work. We learned quickly that Clint was a hard working man with dedication and integrity. He will be missed. May he Rest in Peace. My heart reaches out to Jenn and the Lee and Bateman families.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a funeral?

A funeral is a ceremony for a deceased person prior to burial or cremation. A funeral gives the opportunity for family and friends of the deceased to gather and mourn the passing of their loved one, to share cherished memories and celebrate their life. A funeral is a vital first step to help the bereaved heal after the loss of someone special.

What type of service should I have?

If no pre-arrangements have been made, the type of service is entirely up to you.  Services are usually held at a funeral home, community hall, or a place of worship. There is a wealth of different services, ranging from a traditional religious or military service to something a little more non-traditional. Our funeral directors are more than happy to work with you to figure out what would be the most appropriate.

Who are Funeral Directors and what do they do?

Funeral directors are in charge of all the logistics following a death. They complete all the necessary paperwork, make arrangements for the transportation of the body, and put into action the choices made by the family in regards to the funeral service and the final resting place of the body. Beyond the logistics, funeral directors are there to provide moral support and guidance for someone coping with death.

What if a death occurs away from my home town?

We are here to help, we can arrange to have your loved one transported home from anywhere in the world. We will assume responsibility and make the proper arrangements to have them returned to the community. We use the same organization that brings our military home when needed.

What is embalming and what purpose does it serve?

Embalming sanitizes and preserves the body; it also slows down the decomposition process and enhances the appearance of the body damaged by traumatic death or illness. Embalming gives time to the family of the deceased to arrange a service, and allows the family the option of having an open-casket viewing.

What do I do if I am not satisfied with the way a funeral was handled?

Funeral homes and funeral professionals in Alberta are licensed by the Alberta Funeral Services Regulatory Board. If you are unhappy with the way a funeral was handled or the actions of a funeral home in Alberta, you may speak with or proceed with a complaint process to seek resolution of the matter. More information is found at http://www.afsrb.ab.ca/  or by phone at (780) 452-6130 

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of the funeral varies depending on the wishes you have. The average cost of a funeral is between $5,000-$7,000, however, it varies greatly depending on the kind of service you desire. In general, cremation tends to cost less than burial. The costs include professional services including transportation, embalming and other preparations, the use of a facility for the ceremony, and the purchase of a casket or urn.

Can I personalize a funeral?

Of course you can, in fact, more and more people are opting for a more non-traditional personalized service. There is no right or wrong way to celebrate somebody’s life. There are many unique ways to celebrate life, let the funeral director know exactly what your desires are and they will honour your wishes.

Do we need to have an obituary notice and what is included in one?

It is highly recommended to have an obituary notice that’s either placed in a local newspaper or placed online. An obituary lets the public know that a death has occurred, and gives them information about the service. Obituaries generally include the deceased’s full name, age, city, and date of birth and the city they were living in when they died. It also includes the name of the deceased’s spouse, along with the names of anyone else significant in their lives, such as parents, children or grandchildren. Space may be limited in a newspaper obituary, but you may include a little blurb on the life and legacy of the deceased. An online obituary or memorial website offers you the chance to add a lot more about the deceased.

What happens if the death occurs in the middle of the night or on the weekend?

We are here to help, funeral directors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.

Do I need to have an embalming

No, embalming is often an unnecessary expense, even if a viewing is desired. There are times when we would recommend embalming, especially if there is an extended gap between death and burial or cremation.

Why are funerals so expensive?

Funerals are labor intensive and require a lot of work from a lot of people. The cost of a funeral goes beyond merchandise such as caskets, it includes the services of a funeral director in making the necessary arrangements, filling out forms, and dealing with all the other people involved in the death (doctors, lawyers, insurance companies). Funeral directors work an average of 40 hours per funeral. The cost of operating a funeral home is factored into the cost as well. Funeral homes are a 24 hour operation, with extensive facilities that need to be maintained and secured.
