Obituary for Claude Lane

Claude was an out-doors enthusiast who loved to hunt and fish often speaking in admiration of the Caribou migration. He most loved to be on the water in his boat. A day in Summerville would entail the (quad to the boat- boat to the water - spray to the face - turrs to be had- cod to be jigged- tongues to be fried- "yes my son" that would be a lovely morning). He enjoyed telling how he navigated the lakes of Labrador city to get to his camp and hunting spots. Claude loved to receive chocolate in any quantity and was known for his quick wit, always having a joke to share with the group. Their laughter would bring about that twinkle in his eye . We will all deeply miss the (clinkity- clinkity - clink) on that morning mug of Nescafe.
