Clarence John ‘CJ’ Enno (’81)
Clarence John Enno (CJ) passed away unexpectedly on April 16, 2012 at his home in Littleton, Colo.
He was born Feb. 4, 1963, in Belcourt, the son of James M. Enno and Gwendolyn T. (Kjervestad) Enno. He grew up and attended school in Dunseith.There he played basketball, baseball and loved racing snowmobiles. He was listed in Whos Who among High School students and was an honor student of his high school class of 1981.
During his high school summers, he went to Williston to work in construction with his relatives, Kroll Construction and Enno Construction. Upon graduation, he moved to Williston and continued with construction and eventually worked for Pitman Drilling. He then left for Colorado in 1984 with just the clothes on his back and his 1969 Corvette Stingray. He sold his beloved corvette to buy his first work truck and began his construction business, called C Enno Construction. He had this company until his death. One of CJ’s greatest accomplishments in his life is building his dream house up in the mountains. CJ was very proud of this house. He met Brenda Lee Morgan in 1994 and started dating July 1, 1994, and they have been together ever since. She has been his companion and loving partner for 18 years.
CJ was a very free-spirited person. He enjoyed traveling around the world with Brenda and going for walks, hiking, sporting events and also enjoyed winning big at the casino. He also liked to sit around and reminisce about the past with family and friends, always teasing and laughing. He enjoyed fine wine, was a voracious reader, and was an avid history buff. Whenever the family got together CJ would always talk about the places they had been and the history, culture and people they had met. He enjoyed playing basketball or baseball with all the kids while he was here. He also had a heart of gold always willing to help and give you anything you needed.
CJ is survived by his long time companion Brenda Morgan, father, James Enno, Dunseith and Gwen Enno, Fargo, his siblings, Everette (Kim) Enno, Williston, Del (Mark) Enno, Fargo, Allan (Shari) Enno, Horace, Laurie Enno, Rolette, Bonita Enno, Horace, Cherrie (Alan) Belaskie, Horace, his sister-in-law, Arlene (Steve) Nickerson, of Colorado, his brother-in-law Cezar (Deb) Dignadice, of Colorado, his nieces and nephews, Catlin and Lexi Enno, James Mitchell, Andrew and Alison Enno, Kaycee and Jacob Peterson, Jordyn McCloud, Jaide Enno, Lane and Stanley Belaskie, Glen, Logan and Brandon Dignadice, Heidi and Geoffrey Nickerson, his Aunt Blanche Kroll, Aunt Bette Poitra, Aunt Marie Peckham, Aunt Patty Eller, and Uncle Dennis Fredericks, and many cousins.
He was preceded in death by many uncles and aunts, and his maternal and paternal grandparents.

couple things that would date the picture earlier than was indicated. I
noticed the photo included Mrs. Katherine Berube in the top row. I
believe she passed away the first year I was in college in Bottineau,
which was 1968-69. Then I remembered that Manuel Cuadrado was still in
high school here when Father Wolfe passed away, as he was the one who
told me about it. I believe the Cuadrados left in about ’65 or’66. My
guess is that it must have been around 1965 that this picture was
taken. As always, I’m open to correction. Thanks Gary!Dick
