Clarence grew up in Hammond, Indiana, and as a child overcame polio which helped contribute to his resilient attitude. He received his BS and MBA from Indiana University and also served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1963 to 1966. His work career started with AT&T long lines in Chicago until moving to Mansfield, Ohio to be Operations Manager at United Telephone. From 1975-1987 he was the President and Owner of Perfection Manufacturing Corp. He then went on to be the General Manager of the Mansfield Division of OmniSource Corp. During his tenure there, he became a Broker of scrap metal and continued in that position until retirement in 2013. Many of his clients and associates were considered his friends.

He was a Paul Harris Rotarian, President of the Richland County Purchasing Club, sat on the Mansfield Zoning Board of Appeals, and was Chairman of the Richland Economic Development Corp. from 1995-1997. He also volunteered in many capacities and was creative in event organization and civic fundraising campaigns.

Clarence was an avid golfer and tennis player and enjoyed being a member of the Westbrook Country Club and the Woodland Club. Over the years he made time to coach many different youth sports teams. Clarence had a keen intellect and performed at a high-level playing bridge and completing crossword puzzles. More than anything, Clarence cherished his friends and loved being supportive.
