Obituary for Clem Dunphy

Clem  Dunphy
DUNPHY, Clem - Passed peacefully away with beloved family by his side at Chancellor Park long term care home on May 16, 2018, Clem Dunphy. Born October 12, 1931, Clem is predeceased by Betty, his true love and wife of over 61 years, his parents: Will and Mary Dunphy of Tors Cove, his sisters: Joan and Helen and his brother Billy. Leaving behind with wonderful memories are his sons: Kevin (Diane) and Keith (Michele) and his daughter Karen Duval (Steve); his adored grandchildren Nicole Butler (Brett), Kimber, William, Wyatt, Marc-Antoine, Alexis and the newest edition to his family, great-granddaughter Charlotte Butler. Also left to mourn are his sisters: Fran Halley (Denis), Biddy O’Keefe (Pierre), Anne Hobson (Gerald), Rose Connors, Marie Dunphy Harding, and brother Paul (Zita). Friends, nieces, nephews and extended family are too numerous to mention though all were dearly loved and will mourn his passing. Clem founded Dunphy Molloy & Associates in 1974 and grew it into a thriving business. He was extremely proud to see his eldest son take over the business in 1993 and eventually retired in 2000. Clem was active in many clubs and societies committed to the betterment of his city and it’s residents- Jaycees, Rotary, the MUN Board of regents just to name a few. Clem was a loving husband, father, grandfather and a good friend to all who knew him. A natural storyteller, he captivated a room with a recitation, a joke or a ‘yarn’. He always chuckled at a funny comment and made a quick-witted reply whenever he saw an opening. He was delighted to know that he passed his sense of humour to all three of his children. If you were to ask Clem, he would tell you that the best thing he ever did was marry Betty. Theirs is a true love story spanning well over 60 years. In November of 2016, he lost his soulmate and, with it, a part of himself. Without her, his health declined until he finally went to be with her again for eternity. Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be at Barrett’s Funeral Home, 73 Commonwealth Avenue, Mount Pearl from 7-9pm on Sunday, May 20 and 2-4, 7-9pm Monday the 21st. A celebration of his life will be held on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. from Barrett’s Funeral Chapel Mt. Pearl. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Tors Cove cemetery fund- a cause very close to his heart. To sign the on line memorial guest book please visit www.barretts.ca
