    I have only met Clarence a few times. But he was a big personality. I’m sure he will be missed by many. Just a nice man. Please keep me updated when memorial service is held.

    Uncle Brud was one of my favorite people. He made a point to stop in EVERY week to give me goodies and endless amounts of food for the boys and I. We never went without, because of him. And he nearly gave me every one of his Pollyanna gifts… because I just “had to have it” and he would never take no for an answer. Ever. I will sorely miss his visits and big hugs. He will never be forgotten. We love you, Uncle Brud. ❤️

    We have missed Clarence here at North Chester Baptist beginning when he was no longer able to drive. He was always ready with a smile and a helping hand. I personally remember one day when he came to my rescue. I had accidentally locked myself out of the church office and he happened to drive up. He didn’t look like a knight in shining armor, but that’s the way I saw him that day. It’s comforting to know he is enjoying being in the presence of the Savior he loved so well, and we will see him again one day.

    My wife and I are heartbroken over the passing of Clarence. He was such an incredible blessing to us. There were many many times he gave us bread, muffins, donuts, etc. We were privileged to have him at our house for dinner a few times in the last 5 years. Clarence we love you and thank God for you my friend. Because of your faith in Jesus we will see you in Heaven soon! God bless you my dear friend.

    Uncle Clarence (Brud) I still can’t believe I am writing a tribute because of your passing. Words cannot describe this difficult moment, but if this is the last time I get to say goodbye then I know I will do so with the knowledge that I consider myself blessed to have had you in my life and our family!
    Mike & Wayne I know there is nothing for me to say that will make your loss easier but know that I am sending you my love and support. Dee
