I've know Claude for 30+ years.
My mom (Arlene) , Pat and Claude were what I called the best of buds then and have kept in touch still after all these years. What I recall was going dancing with Pat and Claude. That man loved to dance and could" cut a rug" as it was called . You will be missed by many Mr. Claude -- go cut that rug with the angels wearing that big great smile of yours.

Claude LOVED to go out & eat . Claude, Patricia, myself, & my partner Tommy have gone out to eat together at least twice a month for the past several years . ( usually on a Saturday night ) Last weekend we had planned to go somewhere Saturday evening. As it turned out, both Claude & myself were both a little “ under the weather “. On Sunday Patricia called & said Claude was feeling better & wondered if we would like to go somewhere for supper. I was still feeling “ puny “ but we told her we’d be delighted. We all went to Olympic Steak & Pizza in Oakland for a wonderful meal. I’m SO glad we did !!!
