Clarence was a long time member of St. Barnabas Catholic Church, and later at St. Margret Mary. He was a WWII Navy Vet, and served in the Pacific theatre at the Battle of Guadalcanal. He was a proud graduate of St. Xavier High School, class of 1943 and a long time employee of the L&N Railroad.
During his life, Clarence was able to travel from coast to coast, and was a proud sailboat owner for over 20 years. He enjoyed square dancing with his wife and was a very talented artist.
Even at 94 years old, Clarence had a big personality and made friends everywhere he went. He always had a big smile and a joke to tell. The world was a better place because of his presence and he will be sorely missed.
