Clarence Hannotte, son of the late John and Mary Hannotte of Spiritwood, Saskatchewan. He attended Elementary School in Forgan and graduated from Foam Lake High School. He was married to Joan McDuff in 1974. They settled into their first home in Moose Jaw where he worked for SaskTel. They moved to Sceptre later that year, where Clarence was employed by Pioneer Grain and they started their family. From there they moved to Canwood in 1976, to start a joint family farm. After that they moved their family to Buchanan where they farmed, and Clarence worked for the RM. In 1988, Clarence and Joan moved their family to Yorkton where they started their business Fas Gas on Broadway. They spent the next 12 years working hard and providing for their children, shaping them into adults with strong family values and unique senses of humour. In 1995, Clarence began his career as a long-haul truck driver which he continued for the rest of his life. Truck driving provided Clarence with his two favourite past times: visiting his friends and family or coming up with a new “dream of the week”. In his free time, you could find Clarence back in Yorkton having coffee at Grumpy’s with his close friends, at a Terrier game, or having supper with Natalie. If you did not find him in the city, he was out on his three quarters reconnecting with his love of the land. Clarence was a hardworking and proud man. He was known for his easy manner, infectious laugh, and love of a good joke or great story. He had the ability to talk about anything under the sun with anyone he came across. His life will be carried on and forever be cherished in the lives of his children; Naomi (Wade) Dreger, Jeff (Kristen) Hannotte, Melanie (Shea) Yaroszko, and Tyler Hannotte. He is lovingly remembered by his grandchildren: Tristyn, Jessica and Zoie Dreger, Brooklyn and Jake Hannotte, Lily and Emily Yaroszko. He is survived by his brothers and sister: Leon (Carol) Hannotte, Adele (Hugh) Jensen, Alan (Charlene) Hannotte and Laverne (Marianne) Hannotte, along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, and honorary extended family.
