Obituary For Clarence "Moses" Hatton
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father who passed away peacefully on Oct 2nd, 2021 @ Sagewood Continuing Care Home, Lr Sackville.
He was the son of the late Clarence and Perla (Weeks) Hatton
He is survived by his children, Thomas Hatton (Joan), Mary Anne Parker (Donald), Pamela Cooper (Gerald), Perla Hobin (Charles), Wilfred “Bubby” Hatton (Linda), Laurie Hatton (Jodi)and stepdaughter Mary Cantle. Grandchildren Christopher, Sherry, Christine, Jeffery, and Timara. 7 great grandchildren. Brother Jerry Sr. Many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by his first wife Annie A. Hatton and his secondwife Rita M. Hatton (Coady), siblings Laurie, Lorna, and Meta.
Known to most as “Moe or Moses” dad was a Merchant Marine during the 2nd World War and later worked for many years at the V.G. Hospital. He always enjoyed camping with his family and in later years he was a seasonal camper at Riverland Campgrounds in Nine Mile River and has a section of the campgrounds known as “Moetown” named after him. He also enjoyed watching and coaching baseball where many felt he didn’t always make the right call or that is was even his call to make, I note this as his son Laurie would like it noted “he was safe, and it was not your call’. Dad spent the last years of his life in Sagewood home suffering from dementia but took comfort in knowing he was close to his family. Our family would like to thank the CCA’s and nursing staff on both Cranberry and Butterfly units of the home for the great care they provided for the past 8 years and would like to say a special thank you to Kaitlyn and Ashley, CCA’s that always went the extra mile to keep him comfortable.
A celebration of life service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia.
