Family, friends, neighbours and a 40-strong Honour Guard consisting of BC Ambulance personnel, RCMP members and members of the Clinton Volunteer Fire Department packed the Clinton Memorial Hall on Sunday, June 21 to bid farewell to Tony Caron who had passed away in early June.

Tony had served in the Clinton Ambulance Station for the past six years and Unit Chief Chris Guerin shared fond memories of their time together.

The Siska and Local Handdrummers paid tribute to Tony with traditional songs of farewell.

The volunteer time that Tony spent in the community was praised, as was his compassion for those he served in a professional capacity.

Left to mourn him are his spouse, Tracy Fallstrom, his father Ken Caron, family and friends.

Rest in Peace Tony. The race is won!
