Special friend and mother of his children, Cathy Ominika. Grandfather to his #1 and only granddaughter, Leah Ominika; whom he loved so much and enjoyed spending time with her as often as he could. Dear godson of Lawrence and Agatha Wemigwans (both deceased before). Grandson of Adolphus Wemigwans and Esther Animikwan and Sarah and Jacob Bondy (all predeceased). Also lovingly remembered by many nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins ​​and friends. In his younger years in Wiikwemkoong, he enjoyed playing hockey on his outdoor rink at his hometown arena and many other local rinks for exciting minor hockey championship games. This eventually led to him later excelling in the Air Canada Midget AAA Championships held in Ottawa in 1987, playing for the Sudbury Burgess Power Train. He was very well known in hockey rinks in his younger years, especially for his sportsmanship, playing and skating skills (hipcheck geh!!); his greatest passion, hockey, and teaching his skills to his sons. “Always remember; an assist is as good as a goal. Cliffy had a good sense of humour, he was also a calm and gentle person always ready to lend a hand. As stated by the one of his nephews, “you never knew where he was going to turn up and you always had a funny story to tell, just to make you laugh.” Cliffy loved working with his hands and has worked in carpentry with Wikwemikong Housing and more late with Jimmy Assinewai-baa, his pal whom he joins above, doing jobs in the community and surrounding areas.His favorite hobbies included watching Sports Highlights and Bloopers with his boys and watching home improvement shows, the Food Network and can’t forget his favorite hockey team, the ‘Toronto Maple Leafs.’ A wake-up service was held at St. Ignatius Church in Buzwah on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. The funeral was held place on Friday, February 4, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. All COVID-19 precautions were followed.
