Clarence Hans Moos passed away on December 16, 2023, in Rimbey, Alberta. Clarence was born in Bentley, Alberta on July 19, 1934. Clarence was predeceased by his parents, Hans and Nora Moos as well as his brother Edward (Shirley), and his sister Diana (Keith) Misner.

He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and a host of friends.
Clarence was a life-long farmer and enjoyed going to the farm daily after moving into Eckville. Clarence was very passionate about the farm and showing his family how to farm. He shared a keen interest with the cattle and his granddaughter Emily’s interest with them, but they always argued about the color of the cattle. As a young man Clarence was an avid baseball player, hockey player, fisherman, and then added curling to his interests as the years went on. Starting out he worked in the bush and drove a school bus for a few years as well. One of Clarence and Maira’s passions was dancing, they would travel with friends to various community halls. He enjoyed travelling with Maira to Yuma, Finland, BC, Ontario and Alaska.
Clarence had a great sense of humour and loved to share laughter with his family and friends. Clarence was a family man, and he was the first to jump into action when someone needed help. He was greatly loved by his whole family and the community around him, he was someone special to many people he was surrounded by.
The family would like to thank the doctors and staff at the Rimbey Hospital and the Long-Term Care Centre for their excellent care.
