So many wonderful memories of Clarence. His G'ma lived next door to my family growing up.
He almost seemed like another brother to me. I remember so well how he got the nickname of "Pancake."
Wanda and the family, so sorry for your loss.

I have loving memories of Pancake as he grew up on our farm. His father, Clyde, helped my father. When I fell out of the haymow at age 10, Clyde saved my life. He carried me to his car and carried me into the hospital. I wouldn’t have survived without him. I am grateful and in great debt to the Heaton family.

Clarence was a wonderful servant- I remember being with my Dad, Don Kress, at Clarences workshop one day so he could help my Dad with something. I think he also did a missions project together with my Dad using his carpentry skills. He was a kind, friendly, loving man
