Default RIP Clive Law

Sadly Clive has passed away.

From fb today:

Quote:
Posted by Richard Law on FB at noon on Sunday (Ottawa)

It's with a very heavy heart that I inform you all of my father's passing. He passed away peacefully and comfortably yesterday evening having succumbed to his stroke.

In the coming days I will relay funeral arrangements for those who wish to attend.

Thank you to everyone who offered support, well wishes, prayers, and kept him in their thoughts during this difficult week. Your support was of great help and very appreciated by the entire family.
He will be deeply missed.

I am proud to have known such a great fellow.

regards
Darrell

So sad indeed. He was an officer and a gentleman and such a nice man. The work that he did on Canadian militaria is immeasurable and unlikely to be surpassed. It is a great loss. My heart goes out to Richard and the Law family at this time.

On behalf of the Bytown Militaria Collectors' Association, and myself, I offer our sincere condolences.

David

Living in the far end of the country I never had the privilege of meeting Clive. My only contact was through ordering books from Service Publications. Those times of contact I had the feeling that Clive was somehow looking over my shoulder and helping to move my hobby to the next level. One has only to look at the topics of the books he wrote or published to appreciate the depth of respect he had for Canada's military heritage.

If I can feel this way about a man I never met, I can only imagine the depth of loss to the family. Rest easy Clive.

Clive was the force behind a new approach to military hobbies. He put collecting on a solid footing of research and insisted on integrity in all that he published. He was a friend, a mentor and encouraged many of us to put our passions in print.
Condolences to Richard and his family and friends.

Can't say I knew Clive, but it's always sad to hear of the passing of someone so clearly admired and liked from within Militaria circles. RIP Clive.
