Cyril Stephen Clancy

October 24, 1958 to May 30, 2021


It is with profound sadness and disbelief that the family of Cyril Stephen Clancy announce his sudden passing at home surrounded by his loving sons and wife on May 30th, 2021 at the age of 62. The family lost a kind, patient, fun loving family man, who was the epitome of a true gentleman with an infectious smile. Predeceased by his parents, Ray and Catherine (Kay) Clancy, his father-in-law Lou Buckle, and his sister-in-law Sherry Loveridge. Cyril is survived by his loving wife Patty, and his adoring sons, his prides and joys, Zack (Jenn) and Liam (Emma-Jean), loving brother Chris (Barbara) and sisters Bobbi Sidel (Dave), Janine, Cathy Benfey (Tillmann), mother-in-law, Bernice Buckle, brother-in-law Joe Buckle (Christine) and brother-in-law Gary Loveridge and their families. Cyril will be missed by friends all over the country. As Cyril requested, there will be no visitation service, as cremation has taken place. A celebration of Cyril’s life will be held later when family and friends can gather without restrictions.  Flowers gratefully declined.  Donations in his memory may be made to the animal rescue group, Forget Me Not Animal Rescue (EMT directly to, password “rescue2021” and in the message box indicate “In memory of Cyril Clancy”).  Donations can also be mailed to 19 Ploughman Place, CBS, NL A1W 0H1.

I was shocked and saddened to read of Cyril’s passing. Our families have known each other for as long as I can remember. My sincerest condolences to all his family.

Dear Clancey family,
So sorry to hear of Cyril’s passing. Many good memories of growing up next door on Maypark. My sincerest condolences to all the family.

Dear Patty and family,
I was looking for the obituary of my Mom – Peggy Russell – when I came across Cyril’s name. It was a shock because I had not heard. The Clancy’s and Russell’s grew up together on Maypark Place and I have such fond memories and I am sure Cyril did too. My sympathy to you and the family.

Patty, Zach and Liam and all my Clancy cousins,

What a privilege it was/is to be Cyril’s first cousin. Our two families grew up together. He was always interested in celebrating the highlights of our lives.
I have pictures with him at parties, at my MUN graduation, and even on our honeymoon. We all planned a Caribbean Cruise together.!

Cyril visited us in Halifax and left gifts for each of the children.
Cyril loved people and was a master at getting a good conversation going. I know he thought the world of his boys. He loved to talk about them.

Our lives have been enriched by his presence in it.
He was a man of faith and knew He would be with Jesus one day. I am sure there is a wonderful welcome party and reunion happening in heaven.

We treasure our memories of him and look forward to seeing him again one day.

Hope it won’t be too long til we can have a celebration of his life.

Doug and I send you all much love.

Patty and Family

Patty, Zach and Liam
We were shocked and heart broken to hear about the sudden passing of Cyril. He was a kind and gentle soul. Our thoughts are with you guys at this time.

Our deepest sympathies and loving thoughts are with you, Cathy, Chris, Bobbi and Janine. Cyril was indeed a gentleman. My enduring fun memory of Cyril as a child was seeing him run up the lawn into his house swinging his arm and demanding “Mom open the door I’m coming in!”. Maybe Cathy reminded me of this many years later. It makes me amile. Love Heather Mark and Natalie Hargreaves

Patty Lou and Family
