Clarence was well known in the community for being a social butterfly whose attendance and active participation in any ceremony or celebration was always accustom to the event. Clarence was always delighted to attend any wedding, dance, or church services that took place in the region. Young or old, he always greeted everyone in his presence with a warm smile and handshake, and then loved to hear about their life. Clarence’s kind-hearted, compassionate personality was always prevalent as he spent his life living with his mom and dad. To return the loving care they provided to him, he always kept busy by helping them with their chores, and daily tasks. When his dad passed away, he felt his role and responsibility in the household grew, and continued his care for his mom for another seven years until her passing, after the passing of his mom, Islandside Manor welcomed him with open arms, and it quickly became his new home. This change never limited him, as he was always anticipating the next social event to attend. Whether it was early evening or late at night, the astounding staff at Islandside Manor was always awaiting his safe return. Although this beloved social butterfly has completed his flight here on earth, look closely while at a social event, as a butterfly from heaven is guaranteed to appear.
Pallbearers are Garland Hemeon, Pergolis Noseworthy, Alvin Rowsell, Eugene Peddle, Hadwood Chippett and John Rowsell.
