I will always cherish the time spent with Uncle Clint.

Three wonderful memories that I have, that I will never forget about my time with him are:

First: The snare drum that he gave me. I will enjoy a lifetime of music thinking of him.

Second: He introduced me to the wonderful world of hobbies. The one that he introduced me to was model train sets. I’ll never forget his enthusiasm when he showed me around his basement.

Third: I will always associate both Clint and Dottie, along with the Elmores, with some of the favorite times of my formative years.

Thank you for your love and compassion. I will remember you.

I've known Clint for more than 30 years. During much of that time we worked together and did an even better job of playing together. While in Louisville and outside of Philly we tried to take money from one another playing golf or at the card table playing Gin. I don't know who came out on top of the money list...it didn't matter. It always ended up with a smile on someone's face and a beverage in our hand.

We drove to Atlantic City to meet the person who became his soul mate, best friend and the love of his life. Clint and Dotti attended our son's and daughter's weddings and we attended Jennifer's. The four of us have laughed so hard and also shed tears with one another. Even though our paths have not crossed much in these last 10 years we have such treasured memories.

To Dotti, one of our life's favorite ladies, we send you a lengthy hug and a whisper in your ear to try and ease the moment and the moments to come. Our condolence's also go to Jennifer, Craig and the grandkids.

To Clint, when I get up there I expect you to have a tee time set and a gin and tonic waiting for me. I'm in no hurry so I'll see you if or when I get there... down the road big boy.

Huge regards and respects,
Dave and Carolyn Elmore

Dottie,
We are so sorry for your loss, however we rejoice with you as we know that Clint is with his Lord and Savior, free of this life's infirmities.
We have so many fond memories of our riding adventures with you two.
Not only did I immediately bond with Clint as a brother in Christ, but as a brother in blue. I look forward to riding those golden streets with him.
Love,
Scott & Mary Sitton

Rest In Peace PopPop! You will be missed dearly! We take great comfort knowing you are with the lord. Our time with you was filled with much laughter, competitive card games and much love over the years. I wanted to add a few of my favorite photos.

Clint is a very special person we work together in Fort Worth Texas, Louisville Kentucky, and Philadelphia Pennsylvania. He was extremely skillful at his profession. A great underwriter a profitable insurance business and a very good trainer of new insurance agents.
Ann and I will miss him tremendously. His love of electric trains is legendary as well as his game of golf which is legendary not for its perfection but for its entertainment.
I love this man and will miss him dearly.
