I was shocked and saddened to hear of Clarence's passing. Our friendship went back to Terry Parker High School. He was one of my close friends as we came of age in the late 90s. He had a zest for life and the biggest smile around. He was always there to cheer you up and have a good time. He had big dreams and worked hard to achieve them. His education was very important to him. He was our Student Council President at Terry Parker High. He was full of energy and work ethic and always had a job or multiple jobs as long as I knew him. He had a passion for helping people and organizations in need. He loved God and his family, and I'm sure made them very proud. I think by the outpouring of love we've seen since his passing, you can tell the impact he had on other people's lives. I wonder how many hundreds of people would call him "friend." That's just how he was - a special person. This world will miss you Clare Bear - you made it a better place. Until we meet again...
Love you bud,
Alden

Even being a stranger to this man few years back he would make my vodka cranberry extra lime & even with a bae full of people he took the time to blind me with his amazing smile and super sweet & loving flirtatious demeanor although I was in my party days I flirted with 95 percent of the people that crossed my path but Clarence stuck out aside from being the best bartender, he just had the most amazing memory remember my name catching me off guard several times I just remember being like wow he remembers me. And man no one can ever forget that smile.

I worked for Clarence at The Loft. He was a great boss and I always felt comfortable around him. His way of handling situations and decorum are ingrained in me. Clarence, without knowing it, had a profound and lasting impression on my life. I will never forget him.

I never got to spend as much time with Clarence as I would have liked, mainly because he was always working and zipping from one spot to the next. I’m thankful for the times we got to spend with each other, him trying his best to embarrass one of us at Hamburger Mary’s or him being flustered because I have absolutely no shame. Although I’ve been traveling for work the last few years I’m glad Clarence made time to sit down a few times so we could talk. His love for everyone was not only worn on his sleeve, but burst from every pore in his body. While I’m not religious in the least, if there was ever any proof of angels on earth, Clarence was it.

I had so many good times with Clarence, not just one stands out in my mind. He was always full of joy and energy even when things were not going well. Clarence had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person in his life. I love you Clarence, you were my brother from another mother. I will miss you dearly and I wish that I had made a trip to Jax before you left this world to go home to our Heavenly Father. RIP brother . . .

Clarence was my friend for almost 20 years. He was the first person to jump in and help with any fundraisers or events in our community. He wanted to help everyone. Clarence will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and anyone he ever came in contact with. Clarence, fly high, and may you always, Rest In Peace. 🙏🏼🌈🙏🏼
