Thomas (Clive) Rye

Born April 2, 1964 in Cumberland, BC. Died suddenly on July 12, 2015 at age 51 in his home in Royston.

Clive was predeceased by his father Glen Rye, his grandparents Lenore & Clive Banks, grandparents Joe and Dorothy Rye, as well as his Aunt Carol, Uncle Bob, cousins Lance and Lawrence. Clive is survived by his beloved soulmate Anita, his children Skyler and Jeremy (Kelsey), his mother Pat (Joe), brother Joe (Terry), sister Laurie, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and many many dear fiends.

Clive was a charismatic, jovial, colourful man who befriended almost everyone he met. He was a no-holds-barred, pull no punches type of personality, and that is what drew people to him, along with his never-ending hilarious stories and experiences of his short, but interesting life. The mold was broken when Clive was created. He will be truly missed by many, many people. He left his mark in this life Clive was a hard worker and a hard player. He loved hunting and fishing, but mostly he loved puttering in his back yard with a cold Budweiser in hand. He was a homebody & loved to tend to his house and his yard, and dote on his two beloved cats – he loved them dearly (imagine that!).

There will be no service or gathering as per Clive’s wishes. He would only wish that everyone have a beer in his honour. Wherever Clive has gone, I’m sure he is surrounded by loved ones and friends. You will be dearly missed.

Happy trails, Clive. xo
