In all of my memories of Clarence I don't think there was one where he wasn't smiling. His laugh was jolly and for him there was always something to be grateful for.
From family get-togethers to a quick unannounced stop, there was never a bad time for a visit from Clarence and JoAnn. He was a wonderful Grandpa and Great Grandpa.
I'm blessed to have known such a great man. I'm thankful for the memories I was able to be a part of and I know he's looking down, smiling with a twinkle in his eye, still looking over his family as he always did.

Family of Mr. French,

Simply saw the obit in the paper notice and felt compelled to send you a message. My father was Clarence N. French and his birthday was August 3rd. Found the similarity a heartwarming thought and pray that you all are finding comfort in the memories he left you with on this Earth.

God Bless!

From the moment I met Grandma and Grandpa, I was immediately welcomed as part of the family. I had lost all of my grandparents when I was young. I had wondered what it would be like to have a close extended family and that was what I got right from the start. He was a man that was always sincerely glad to see you. A kind soul who loved his family. I am grateful to have known him.
