After a three year battle with cancer, Arden Clayton Flotre, 78, of Campbell River, passed away. He was born In Watson, Saskatchewan.
He was predeceased by his parents Arthur and Clara Flotre. He is survived by his wife Ann Christine Flotre; children Ian (Christa), Roger and Beverly, brother Allan Flotre (Dolores) and 2 nieces, 9 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
Arden was a road grader operator, auto body repair, Aero Engine Technician (RCAF), truck driver, welder, heavy duty mechanic, marine engineer, and then back to trucks that bend in the middle until retirement. Highlighting his later years were two family reunions in Saskatchewan; one in Bulyea on his father’s side and the other in Archerville on his mother’s side.

His family sends thanks to his doctors, nurses and staff at Campbell River and District General Hospital for their wonderful care.
