Obituary of Clinton Thomas Haining

Please share a memory of Clinton to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Clinton Thomas Haining was born at the Red Deer Hospital January 7th , 1961 to Beth Thomas and Delmar Haining. 


When Clinton was young  in the Sunnyslope /Acme area we spent a lot of time at the Thomas /Reboul farm. Brad, Lea, Carol and John were more like siblings than cousins. He spoke highly throughout the years of the fun times and of the importance of those relationships.


In the fall of 1971 we  moved to Calgary where he met life long friends. Clint had great work ethics and found himself travelling and working as a young adult in numerous places in Alberta and Saskatchewan always coming back in the spring and the fall to help his dad and grandpa on the farm and eventually moving back to Acme permanently. Clinton enjoyed farming but he especially enjoyed driving tandem truck. For many years he  looked forward to the long hours of silage season.


During his glory days there was some “wild and crazy” times, over the top, fun, tough and his generosity almost to a fault. Within  those times there continuously stood tall the biggest hearted person.Clinton would do anything that you asked for...landscaping a yard and building numerous flower gardens...rushing over to rescue a cat stuck under the hood of a his nieces and nephew rides in the summertime whether it be down a long slip and slide...or rides around the yard on his 1942 Harley Davidson. Many hours were spent teaching them to fish. His help on our farm over the years is immeasurable and appreciated. 


As long as I can remember Clint was an avid hunter always looking forward to hunting season starting.  Whether it be bow or rifle it was one of his greatest pleasures. He really enjoyed hunting with buddies. This past season was one of the best he said. He called and told stories of how plentiful the deer were and how he enjoyed watching them daily.


His greatest  passions and loves were his dogs and Harley Davidsons 

His dogs to him were second to none. His beloved pets throughout the years kept him in good company. Harley Davidsons  whether it be building and tweaking the 42, and in most recent years he immensely enjoyed riding his Dyna Lowrider with friends. 


He is in Gods arms and with family now. We will miss him with all our hearts. 


Clinton is survived by his sister Barb Wittstock, brother-in-law Jerry, nieces Megan(Sam) Fusaro, Laura Wittstock, nephew Tanner Wittstock; Great Nieces and nephew Emilia, Ava, Anthony, Kinley and Harlee; Great aunt, aunts, cousins and he leaves behind some of the greatest friends that anybody could ever ask for.


As per Clinton’s wishes  and his love of nature  there will be a celebration of life outdoors around a fire In the spring where family and friends are welcome.
