  2. Clarence was such a kind person. He was also a lot of fun to be around. I have a lot of good memories of him and will miss him very much. I’ll always remember him singing “Where oh where is Susie”. I’m glad he was my uncle.

  3. I am so sorry to learn of Clarence’s passing. All the times I was around him, I never once saw him get mad. He was always so kind and patient towards everyone. I will always remember the pranks he pulled on Grandma Morgan. She loved every one of them. He could tell the best jokes and stories. He was a great Uncle to me while I was growing up.
