You're all dad was a man's man. I will never forget the bonfires the bonfires. I will never forget the eats and treats that we had in the driveway.. Plus I will never forget the fights that you Matt and you Travis had @ your dad's, with dado saying just get it. Your father was a amazing man. Clarence taught me a lot. I'll always love and remember his knowledge that he gave me. I love you all and wish you the best! Clarence ride hard in heaven.

Hard to accept, been missing the calls from my best buddy for a week now, seems like it can’t be real. Trusted him more than anyone else in the world . We’ve worked on hot rods, motorcycles, houses etc, etc since we were fifteen years old. Had each other’s back always. I live where I live now because of him ( Nextdoor). Isn’t the same there now,, really gonna miss him and everything we’ve always done together——a good brother gone too soon


Work with Clarence at MoDOT, was great man to work with. My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends.

Ruby and Katie, so sorry to hear of Clarence’s passing. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers at this time. This loss will hit you hard just as it hit me 8 mos ago when Eddy suddenly left us. Life will be different, it will be lonely and at times you will ask God, “WHY” but God will see you through each day and the memories will help you through it. Love you, sending hugs. Ruby I think of you often.
