The notice of the Alumni Music Reunion brought the sad news of Dr. Martin's death. I sang in his choirs at Westminster before transferring to another college. They were a marvelous two years under his leadership. Not only was Dr. Martin an extraordinary musician, his exceptional character and high standards made each rehearsal and performance memorable. My deepest sympathy to his family.

I just found out that Clance had died with the Alumni Choir Reunion notice arrived. What at shock. Somehow we think great friends will go on forever.
We were neighbors in New Wilmington, went on milk runs to Ohio, and our children were about the same age. We had a memorable trip to England, as tourists and musicians. I feel enriched to have known him. Beth McIndoe Hoekje '54 (Portland, TX)
The many comments you have made about Clancy are a great comfort to me and my family, and a great tribute to him. Thank you, thank you! We're grateful for many happy memories.
A gentleman, musician, educator all rolled into a lovely man. He shaped my music education at Westminster as well as my career.
I was sad to hear that Clancy passed away this past month. I was just talking to my husband about our trip to Romania, 1978, and what a trip that was!!! He was always patient and kind and I loved singing in the choir under his direction! Claudia Herr Beebe 1979
