Clarence loved his job at Buff Elementary School and in later years told various stories about the school staff, students, his co-workers and supervisors. Especially, he spoke of Kay Call whom he held in the highest regard.

Clarence was much loved by his family and friends who will miss him very much. However, he left us with these comforting words; Isaiah 55:6-7 “Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near.”

“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord. And He will

have mercy on him and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”
