Clarence was always a pleasure to be around! A great sense of humor! He worked with me on a few flooring jobs and was a lot of fun.
One night we were coming back from a job and Clarence got hungry and opened a can of Sardines in the truck !! We got so tickled because of the smell we had to pull over to the side of the road!!
When we did and got out of the truck a Police Officer pulled up and thank goodness Clarences’ calm and witty humor got us back on the road!! GREAT MEMORIES! Truly saddened to say goodbye to a good friend & fellow Veteran!!
