Obituary of Clifford Prevost

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Clifford Alphonse Joseph Prevost, a cherished husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Clifford departed this world on January 22, 2024, at Assiniboia Union Hospital, leaving behind a legacy of love and warmth.

Clifford was born on June 21, 1936, in Lafleche, Saskatchewan, to Harvey and Mary Ann Prevost. He spent his early years on the family farm near Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan, attending Plessis School until its closure. Clifford completed his education at Wood Mountain and obtained his bus license at a young age. He drove the Bombardier snow bus in winter and a school bus in the spring, showcasing his commitment to the community.

Growing up, Clifford worked alongside his father, Harvey, on the family farm and later joined Miners Construction in Saskatoon. In 1968, he purchased three quarters of land from his parents, eventually acquiring the rest in 1974. Clifford's dedication to farming was matched only by his love for his family.

In 1969, Clifford married his soulmate, Phyllis Hicke, on April 11, in Saskatoon. They established their forever home on the “home place" at Wood Mountain, where they raised three children. Clifford was a devoted husband and father, enjoying activities such as curling, camping and fishing, driving his kids to baseball, and participating in wagon trains, especially the Wood Mountain wagon train every summer. A highlight of his wagon train experiences was the Boundary Commission Wagon Train in 1995, where he celebrated his daughter Maureen's wedding during the journey.

Clifford had a zest for life, evident in his love for travel. He and Phyllis explored various destinations, with Vegas being a favorite. Clifford also found joy in playing bingo and keno. His passion extended to watching his grandchildren play hockey, and he willingly traveled countless miles to support them.

A man of kindness and hard work, Clifford always wore a smile on his face. He had a special bond with his loyal dog, Shep, and their adventures down the backroads were cherished moments.

 Clifford is survived by his wife Phyllis Prevost (nee Hicke); son Brad (Gwen) Prevost, grandson Tyler (Whitney) McKee,  greatgrandchildren Sawyer and Aria, granddaughter Stephanie McKee, grandson Cory (Shelby) McKee; daughter Melissa Dawson, grandson Kelly Prevost; daughter Maureen (Lyle) Helland, grandson Shawn (Jamie) Helland, great grandchildren Eric and Emma, granddaughter Nicole (Devin) Milligan, great grandchildren Letty and Capri,  grandson Dakota Helland (Kaitlyn) and grandson Taylor Helland (Jeneva) ; brothers Ken Prevost, Lorne (Bernie) Prevost, sisters Gladys Nespliak, Bernice Mitchell and Diann Tonita, sister-in-law Carolyn Hicke and numerous nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by his parent Harvey and Mary Ann (née Czernick) Prevost; sister-in-law Grace Prevost, brothers-in-law Vic Nespliak, Art Mitchell, George Tonita, Phillip (Rosina) Hicke and Ron Hicke.

A private family celebration honouring Clifford’s life will be held at a later date.
