It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Shaun Richard Clarke on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at the Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

Shaun was born in Cape Breton on July 18, 1957. The fifth of seven children, including six boys and one girl, Shaun developed his kind, engaging personality at a young age and quickly began winning hearts.

Shaun enjoyed the outdoors, with a particular passion for the beach and his ongoing work to perfect his backyard in Lunenburg. Shaun also enjoyed local art and had taken an interest in crafting wooden whales, which he proudly displayed and distributed to friends and family. His annual Christmas wreath delivery will surely be missed.

Shaun had a remarkable career and will be remembered fondly for his lifelong commitment to the film industry in Nova Scotia. Some of his proudest works included his involvement on productions ‘The Lighthouse’, ‘Titanic’, ‘The Healer’, ‘Trailer Park Boys’, ‘Mr. D’, and ‘This Hour Has 22 Minutes’. Shaun’s most cherished legacy will be his two daughters, Jean and Grace, whom he loved very much and was extremely proud of.

Shaun is survived by his wife and partner of over 40 years, Jane Lordly, and their two daughters, Jean and Grace; brothers Peter (Elizabeth); Michael (Sheila); and Kevin (Heather); sister Michele (Paul), sister-in-laws; Margie Clarke; Sara Lordly; Daphne (Alex Mielnik) Lordly; father-in-law; Fred Lordly and many nieces and nephews.

Shaun was predeceased by his parents Yvonne and Douglas Clarke, and brothers Barry and Jeff.

Shaun’s family would like to thank Dr. John Jenkins for all of the care he provided during Shaun’s illness.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the South Shore Health Palliative Care Services, Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital in Lunenburg. A celebration of Shaun’s life will be planned for a later date.
