Claude joined our Lord and Saviour in heaven on August 6, 2015, peacefully in his sleep. He leaves behind his loving wife of 45 years, Libby Dulac and their children Marcel (Elodie) Dulac and Claire (Blaine) Richter and their grandchildren Jared, Joshua, Jacob, Eden, Ethny, Elisha Dulac and Mikaelle Richter. Claude was born in France and met his wife Libby in England in 1969; they married in 1970. They followed their dreams of Canada immigrating in 1973 and discovered that Edmonton wasn’t far enough North… so they drove up the Alaska Highway to Whitehorse. After a year in Mayo where Marcel was born, they moved to the community of their dreams out in Haines Junction. There, Claude worked for the liquor store and after Claire was born he switched careers over to his dream job working in Kluane National Park developing the beautiful trails we have today. Claude’s passion for God, his green thumb, his love of the outdoors and his grandchildren defined who he was. Claude served the Lord through his lay leadership in the Catholic Church and with his generosity throughout the community.
