Clinton Ira Hetrick, age 71 of Tionesta, PA, passed away Friday, November 12, 2021 at UPMC Northwest in Seneca, PA. While his body surrendered to cancer this day, his spirit did not. Clint was ministered into the Christian faith and very much appreciated the prayers and supports he received.
Clint was born on March 31, 1950 to the late Ira Clinton and Ilo M. (Young) Hetrick in Amberson, PA, his father’s birthday. He graduated from North Clarion High School in 1968 and served in the U.S. Army as a military policeman in the U.S. and South Korea. He retired from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers in 2003 with his last position being maintenance leader at Tionesta Dam. He was also part of the Pittsburgh District Dive Team for many years. Clint was known for his masonry work (especially with native stone), carpentry, and willingness to lend a hand to others. He had a passion for hunting and enjoyed relating stories and adventures from many out-of-state trips. He was a member of the Amvets Post #113 of Tionesta.
Clint is survived by his wife Tonia (Brady) Hetrick. Three sons, Nathan Hetrick and his wife Elizabeth of Madison, WI; Josh Hetrick and his wife Sarah of Portland, Oregon; Wayne Brady and his wife Jennifer of Tionesta.
