It is with great sadness that the family of Clay Flinders announces his passing on Friday, December 24, 2021, at the LaVerendrye Hospital in Fort Frances, Ont.

Clay was born on October 23, 1960, in Fort Frances. Clay lived in Fort Frances all his life, besides a few years in British Columbia. He always loved it out there and his dream was to one day take his children.

Anyone that knew Clay knew how kind he was, he would give you the shirt off his back, if he was wearing one. Clay spent his time outside whenever he could, gardening and landscaping, laying in the sun, swimming in the lake. He loved all things outdoors and was very down to earth. He was also very funny and enjoyed making people laugh. He could put a smile on your face even if it was your worst day, he will be so missed.

Clay was predeceased by his parents Orlow Flinders and Lois Bobcock; and his grandmother Irene Flinders.

He is survived by his children Chase Flinders and Danni Mainville; lifelong friend and mother of his children Becky Mainville; siblings Jason and Melissa Flinders and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, January 15, 2022, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Couchiching First Nation Multi-Use Facility.

COVID-19 restrictions will be in place, including proof of vaccination, practicing social distancing and asking everyone to wear a mask.
