I would like to extend my deepest condolences at the passing of Clarence. He will be missed by many. I remember seeing him when I was growing up, because I lived near Batavia and he would stop in by my parents house every now and then. He always had good things to say and will always remember his smile.

I am so sorry to hear of Clarence's passing. He was willing to help us if we needed anything. He always had friendly words and was willing to share his vast knowledge with me. He always took the time to talk with me no matter when or where I encountered him. He and Dorothy showed up at our house to welcome us to the neighborhood when we first moved here and this speaks to the type of man he was thoughtful and considerate. I will miss seeing him around. My deepest condolences to Dorothy and family
