Obituary of Clayton Ronald Marr

It is with great sadness that the family of Clayton Ronald Marr announce his passing, which occurred peacefully on November 23, 2021, at his residence in Wickham, NB. Born in Woodstock, NB, on May 29, 1939, he was a son of the late Eldon and Ruth (Shea) Marr.

Clayton is survived by his loving wife of 54 years Viola “Vi” (Carpenter) Marr; sons: Mark Marr (Laurie) of Wickham, NB, and Terry Marr (Melanie) of Evandale, NB; grandchildren: Jeremy (Amy), Courtney (Randy), Bradley (Laura), Christina (Nick), Kevin, Ashlynne, Ryden, and Lily; great-grandchildren: Shane, Austin, Martin, Jemma Lee, Ace, Riot, Brooke, Madison, and Paisleigh; and step great-grandchildren: Dakota, and Dominick. In addition, Clayton is survived by his brothers Carl (Lillian) of Tenants Cove, NB, Paul (Annie) of Hampstead, NB, and sisters Joyce of Millville, NB and Eleanor of Tenants Cove, NB, along with many other extended family members.

In addition to his parents, Clayton was predeceased by his brothers Wendell and Raymond, and sisters Audrey, Betty, Pauline, Noreen, and Shirley.

Clayton would do anything for his family, and he lit up when the little ones came by for a visit. He was a skilled carpenter who could build anything. For fun, he would play crib, cards, or crokinole with his friends, going to great lengths to ensure a victory. Visitors were always encouraged to enjoy tea or a coffee whenever they came through the door.  Clayton always appreciated the outdoors, looked forward to deer hunting, and loved spending time with his dogs, Keisha and Lady.

“He was an ordinary man who was extraordinary to us!”
