One of the kindest most sincere people I have ever met. Claud was always laughing and kind if this world had a lot more people like Claud it would be a much better place. Every time he was around he was always the same always kind and making people laugh a truly sincere person. I know he is healed and happy now in heaven. Rest in peace Claud.

Claud was a big jokester, he always made you laugh with his funny tales. One Halloween he came dressed in a purple faux fur suite complete with a big hat. I asked him if he was Huggy Bear as he sashayed down the hall. He just grinned.

I worked a few years with Claud at the water company and needless to say there was never a dull moment with him. Shining old copper to look like new, or catching his imaginary pet flea, but my favorite was his drunk voice telling the night before Christmas.
