Obituary of Clem Giovannetti

Clement Cecil Giovannetti, 72 Port Morien Clement Cecil Giovannetti, age 72 passed away December 10, 2021, at his home surrounded by loved ones, after a lengthy battle with cancer. Clem was born to John and Alena (Miles) Giovannetti and lived most of his life in Port Morien. He so loved Cape Breton Island, that he rarely left. His first big trip off the island was to Expo 67 in Montreal, QC. The few times that he travelled outside the Atlantic Provinces only left him yearning for his quiet life in The Village. Clem passed his time exploring the island in his 2007 Sierra pickup truck, lovingly known as his “Baby.” In his younger days, he was an active participant in the fish incubation program sponsored by the Port Morien Wildlife Association. By helping with the release of young fingerlings into the local streams and rivers, he knew that fishing would be an enjoyable activity for both the young people and seniors in the community. Clem felt most at home in the woods, he enjoyed chopping firewood, as well as fishing and hunting, though he was never disappointed to come home empty handed. Clement was a Red Seal Certified Journeyman Carpenter. He was initiated on September 12, 1973 making him a 48-year member in good standing with Local 1588 Carpenters. Clem was a beloved part of the Joneljim Family and will be missed terribly. He helped grow the firm throughout his career as a hardworking, dedicated employee. He was well respected and loved by all he worked with. Clem was known for his lightheartedness and unique sense of humour on the jobsite, using laughter and jokes to brighten people’s day. Clem was known as a soft-spoken gentleman who marched to the beat of his own drum. He was a favorite among his friends and extended family, including numerous nieces, nephews,in-laws and cousins. He was cherished by all who knew him. He loved to dance and lived for his grandchildren. Clem is survived by his mother Alena; his son Richard (Darlene, children James and Chandler); daughter Nadine (Hans, children Alena and Kjeld) and their mother Anne; brothers and sisters: Sherry (John), Gary (Theresa), Eric, David (Susan), Judy (Jim), Patricia (Real), Lynn (Terry), Anita, Jennifer (Bob), and Joy (Scott; as well as his large extended family.
