In loving memory of Clyde Jessop who passed away peacefully April 17th with his family by his side. Loving husband of 51 years to Teresita (nee Villarosa Sienes). Dear Dad of Rob (Cheryl) and Cheryl (Alex) and Grandpa to Fisher, Sienna, Christian and Xavier. He will be greatly missed by his family, relatives and friends.
Clyde was born November 22, 1937 in Toronto, Ontario. Predeceased by his parents Harvey Jessop and Marjorie (nee Mason), brother Peter (Liz) and sister Mary (Tony) and survived by his brother Steve (Jan). He grew up in Hamilton, Ontario where he helped with the family pharmacy. He spent 3 years serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force before attaining his B.A. in Psychology from McMaster University. He and Tessie relocated to Sudbury, Ontario in 1969 to start their teaching careers. He was Business Department Head at Northeastern Secondary School when he retired.
Clyde was fun-loving, friendly, easy-going and a great story teller. He was an active member of the Sudbury Yacht Club, Tennis Club and Canadian-Filipino Association, and enjoyed performing with the Sudbury Rising Stars. He shared a special bond and lasting friendships with his gourmet group, volleyball group and colleagues. He also enjoyed golf, writing poems and short stories, and organizing family reunions.
He loved to travel, spending a few months each year in Mexico and enjoyed many cruises and overseas trips with family and friends. His most recent adventures were to China, Dubai and Egypt and a family trip to Costa Rica to celebrate his 50th wedding anniversary. He really knew how to enjoy life to the fullest and we are thankful for the memories we have with him.
The family extends sincere thanks to the staff at Maison McCulloch Hospice for the wonderful care and compassion they extended to Clyde during his time there.
