Maurice Albert Claeys left us on Saturday March 23, 2019, leaving behind his loving wife of 65 years Simone (Roose) Claeys and furry son Sammy.
Moe as he was called by everyone is survived by his sister Evelyn Vadovic and his sister-in-law Louise Claeys and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by a sister Yvonne Bennett, two brothers Omer and Donald Claeys, three brothers-in-law Maurice Roose, Karl Vadovic and Lorne DeWispelaere, and three sisters-in-law Vera Roose, Yvonne DeWispelaere and Madeline Claeys.
Maurice retired from Motor Wheel in Chatham and became a well known scooter traveller. He loved to go for rides uptown to have coffee with all of his buddies. Along the way he would wave and talk to everyone.
In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place.
A private family graveside service will take place at a later date.
Friends wishing to remember Maurice with a memorial donation are asked to consider P.A.W.R. Animal Rescue or the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation.
