Obituary for Clifford George Ballantyne

In loving memory of our beloved father, brother, uncle, godfather, brother-in-law, cousin, friend and choom, Clifford George Ballantyne “Chachoose”, who was born Tuesday, July 29, 1952 to the late Juiet and Barney Ballantyne.
Clifford lived in Moose Lake half his life. Chachoose was a strong, kind hearted man, full of life, who always had a smile for people and great compassion for his family and friends. He was a very loving father, and choom to his children and grandchildren. He took great pride in watching them grow day by day. He was a very easy going and friendly person who always enjoyed family get-togethers and visiting family and friends. Also talking on the phone with his sisters and the ones who received a early morning phone call from him will be missed.
Clifford’s favorite sport was soccer and he made his first soccer team in Moose Lake called the “Young Guns”.
Chachoose held many different jobs throughout his lifetime. Logging for Moose Lake Loggers, Medical Driver, Tree Planter, fishing, water man, sewer man for Mosakahiken Cree Nation, Com-Stock, Hydro and bus driver for Frontier and labourer for numerous companies.
