I have many happy memories of uncle Clarence at family gatherings as well as out on Prairie Lake in the boat fishing. I will always remember his laugh. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Clarence was a great guy! Not only did he keep the Kishwaukee School building ready for us, he was a friend to both staff and students. I am sorry for your loss.
