Sadly, we announce the passing of Claire Lewis Turnquist at Northern Lights Regional Health Centre in Fort McMurray, Alberta on the afternoon of Thursday, January 21, 2021 at the age of 70 years.

Claire will forever be remembered by his brothers Roger (Deloris) Turnquist, Randy Myrhaugen and his sister Helen (Pat) Flathers. He will also be remembered by his numerous nieces and nephews.

Claire found solitude and solace in going for long walks and was known for his love for hockey and curling.

Claire’s family is grateful for the care he received by the Doctors and staff at the Intensive Care Unit at the Northern Lights Regional Health Centre. 

The family would also wish to express a "thank you" to the staff and residents at the Rotary House Seniors Lodge in Fort McMurray for their care and friendship to Claire.

Due to Covid-19, there will not be an immediate service, but the family will hold a celebration of Claire's life at a later date.
