    Dearest Joyce,

    Your email was the sweetest tribute to the man I called uncle “Ju Ju.” Every description so vivid and absolutely acurate. To say he was special to me is a profound understatement. I have the happiest/silliest/kindest memories of him that I will hold in my heart forever. Thank you for your kind, loving words. He was ALL that and, as we all know, SO much more. So to you, Joyce, love and prayers always.

    With a heavy heart,
    Darlene his sister Mary’s daughter

    My prayers are with the family. I worked with Clarence for many years in the GA building; me in Safety and Clarence in skilled trades. Always a smile on his face, even if he thought some Safety rules were silly, he always help with spreading the Safety message. I will miss him.

    I am so shocked to hear about Clarence’s passing. I worked with Clarence in G.A. and spent numerous occasions talking with him. I will always remember his smile and I never saw him in a bad mood, a true testament of how God wants us to act. My prayers are with you, Larry Smith

    My heart goes out to you and your family. I spent many hours sitting in a cart driven by Clarence as we worked the lines in GA, both during my apprenticeship as well as when I was his partner. He was a great person to work with and a joy to be around as he shared my love for humor. I only found out this hour that my big buddy moved on or I would be there now. He will be greatly missed, but I rest easy knowing I will see him again!

    Dear Family Members of Clarence,
    I am so sorry to hear of Clarence passing. I was his Training Coordinator in GA. I always enjoyed going to Clarence’s team center as I knew he had a laugh for me. He was a great guy and a good worker, always willing to help.
