Clare Hollister
Clare Hollister of Winchester, a lifetime resident of the area, passed away peacefully at  Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Fri., July 18, 2014. He was 83.
Clare was born in Williamsburg Township on Dec. 9, 1930, the fourth of six children born to his parents, Cory and Florence Hollister (nee O’Brien).
Clare worked hard all his life. He became a proud and prominent cheese maker at Upper Canada Village where he worked for 28 years. In addition to being a cheese maker, he owned a farm south of Winchester for many years, and retired in Winchester.
He enjoyed going to Tim Hortons, The Country Kitchen Restaurant, and many other restaurants around the countryside. He knew many, many people, and who all of their relations were. He often talked about history, politics, and the news of the day to anyone he met during his travels. 
He was a kind-hearted man, and he loved helping people, regardless of their station in life. He possessed a good sense of humour, and he loved to have fun. 
Clare is survived by his siblings, Merle (Marion) of Ingleside and Inez (Wallace) Byers of Winchester, and his dear friend, Mahlon Garlough. He was predeceased by his sister, Eileen Arbuthnot, and his brothers, Edward and Howard. He is also survived by nieces and nephews. 
A private family graveside interment service was held at Maple Ridge Cemetery in Chesterville on Mon., July 21 with Rev. John Martin officiating. The pallbearers were Gary Hollister, Calvin Hollister, Robbie Byers, and Michael Kerkhof. The honourary pallbearer was Andrew Hutchinson.
Donations to Winchester District Memorial Hospital would be gratefully acknowledged by the family. 
The arrangements were entrusted to the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home in Williamsburg.
