He was a son, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother, an uncle, a brother-in-law, a friend, an employee, a co-worker, a businessman, and an employer. Clarence was a kind, compassionate, humble and God-fearing man. He believed in the importance of education and wanted his children to excel. Education meant a lot to him. He didn’t get much of it but he wanted all his children to excel academically. He was a true friend to many and valued his family and friends. He loved politics and sports and was a football/soccer fan. He loved to debate world issues and politics with friends and family. He always encouraged others to express themselves. He always allowed his children to speak their minds even when he didn’t agree with their opinions. He was a disciplinarian and in his later years he gave his life to the Lord. He believed strongly in the power of prayer. He taught his children to respect themselves and others. In fact, he insisted on it and non of them dared to do otherwise. He was a boxer in his younger years and carried that presence in other areas of his life. Clarence migrated to the United States with his family. He worked in the lab and as a mixer operator for Virginia Concrete (formerly Florida Rock) until his retirement. He became ill in October 2019 but despite the challenges of his illness, he still believed in prayer, and it was a part of his daily existence. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his illness on March 18, 2022. He will be missed by close family and friends. He is survived by his wife Madge, 5 children - St. Osbourne (Sean), Andrea, Max, Congdon (Connie) and Jenaae, 5 grandchildren - Ariel, Xavier, Rushaad, Tarek and Lianna, 2 brothers - Clifton and Leon and other relatives and friends.
