Clarence Ray Pfeifer, was born on March 25, 1935 to Floyd and Clara Mae Pfeifer in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. He passed away peacefully on June 19, 2018, at Dorian Place Assisted Living in Ontario, Oregon where he spent his last year and a half.

He is survived by his children Cindy Tuning of Fruitland, Terry Farrow (Jess) of Fruitland, Ed Pfeifer (Debbie) of Boise, Eric Pfeifer (Wendy) of Council, Kelli Cordes (Wade) of Fruitland, ten grandchildren (Brandon, Derrick, JD, Bruce, Cory, Tim, Cody, Casey, Jennifer and Hannah), and numerous great grandchildren.

Supporting Fruitland sporting events was what Dad was really about. Anyone who knew him understands exactly what this means, “Go Grizzlies”.

Dear Pfeifer Family,
I hope you know how important you have all been in our lives. Memories from Easters and your house to Christmas at Grandma's. All the laughs Uncle Clarence was part of, family reunions he could entertain us all. Love you all, Pam and Trentin

I am so sorry to hear about Clarence. He was a wonderful man. I enjoyed visiting with him at FHS athletic events! So, you know we got to visit quite often the past several years😊
I will miss seeing him sitting in his truck in the northeast corner of the football field at 3:30 for 7:00 kickoff! He was a special man that LOVED Fruitland Athletics! He always had a smile on his face when we spoke....and his laugh was infectious!

HE WILL BE MISSED~
