I initially met Clint when I was working at St. Vincent’s and had the great fortune of working with him while I was at CRMC. Oh how he loved that hospital and took his position on the Foundation Board and on the Hospital Board very seriously. A perfectionist with everything he was involved in! Thanks so much for your friendship, guidance and always being so well versed in your field. You will be missed by so many on this earth. Rest In Peace my friend.
