Clayton Garrett

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Clayton Garrett Friedley at the age of 32 years. Clayton was born on March 27, 1983 in Calgary, Alberta. Clayton attended school in Delia, Calgary and Olds, Alberta where he studied Agricultural Mechanics & Ag. Business to satisfy his lifelong curiosity about the way things work and how to build on that knowledge and realize his dreams. He lived in an ever evolving loop between the family farm and the city. He had a passion for travel, exploring Canada many times, on his walk abouts from the West Coast to the Atlantic Ocean. As with all things he touched base in many spiritual paths, and incorporated aspects of many beliefs in his life. He loved the land and his family. His compass always led him back to the farm and the country where he completed his journey when his work here was done. Clayton is survived by his mother Cora Jean Mitchell of Calgary, his father Gordan Friedley of Delia, his brothers Gavin (Jeanna & family), Aaron Friedley (Kim), sister Jordan and dear friend Ashley. His Auntie Myrt, Uncle Doug, and cousins Curtis and Graham also held a special place in his life. A large and loving extended family will also miss him dearly. Clayton was predeceased by his grandparents Bert & Cora Mitchell & Elmer & Pauline Friedley and numerous relatives. Clayton’s Memorial Service will be held at the Delia Community Hall on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 2:00. Dinner will be provided and casual dress is welcomed, Clayton’s way.

CHURCH, Charles (Chuck)

April 25, 1925 - November 4, 2015

An “Open House” Memorial Service for Charles Duncan Church of Carlton, Oregon will be held at Parkland Village Community Room, 3121 SE Cumulus Ave, McMinnville, Oregon 97128 on Saturday, November 21, 2015 between 1-4 P.M. Charles, known as “Chuck“ or “C.D.” was born in Longview, WA on April 25, 1925 to Charles Chesley and Sarah Elizabeth (Reid) Church. He left this earthly existence on the evening of November 4, 2015. He leaves behind his three daughters, Patricia Villasenor (John Webb), Pamela Church and Carolyn Church (Beth Wemple), his ex-wife Barbara as well as four grandchildren: Micaela, Elizabeth and Jonathan (Jenea) Villasenor and Maria Cano Church as well as three great grandchildren: Rylan and Cohen Sunnes and Zoey Villasenor. He was preceded in death by his older siblings, Alice E. Devlin, Thelma W. Little and William A. Church as well as a son-in-law, Juan Villasenor. After the family moved back to Canada in August 1929, Chuck spent his youth in Alberta, where his family homesteaded in both Delia and Athabasca. As a young man he served a time in the Royal Canadian Air Force like his pilot brother before him but the war ended before he saw action. Dad was a very self reliant man and a successful farmer. Tiring of the cold and wind of the prairie, however, he moved his family in 1973 to Mission, British Columbia and subsequently to Carlton, OR during the bicentennial year. He worked principally at Floating Point Systems in Beaverton, OR as a maintenance and air conditioner tech for several years before retirement. Chuck was known for his excellent garden, his ingenious fabrication skills, his incessant perfecting of recipes, his sweetness with little children, his intellectual curiosity and amazing sense of humor in just about any situation. We will miss him dearly and for always.
