Not sure what to say?


Clarence was our 'other big brother.' When we moved to McKinley Street, seems like it was the next day that Clarence started coming to our house. He and Charles became the best of friends. Clarence was always a welcomed presence in our home. When you saw Charles, you saw him...always smiling, always so cheerful. He lived up to his name - Cheairs (cheers). I'm glad I got to see you the last time I was in Gary. I didn't know it would be the last time...Love ya, big brother. --Eudeen (Deen)

I wish to extend our deepest sympathy,prayers,condolences, and love to the entire Cheairs Family. The Fountain family.

CUZ is going to be deeply missed, I called him a man of many ideneties with a loving heart to go along with each one, he was a big brother to me, adviser and a father figure for my 2 sons, he touched the hearts of many many people, each person he met he left a positive imprint in their lives.
He earned his wings. He will never be forgotten, that beautiful smile will live forever in our hearts. See you some day CUZ,

Clarence, you will truly be missed by me. I always felt that you and I were the two that held the family together. Maybe because we were the oldest male and female of the family. Thank you for letting my rugrat Ashlee be a big part of your family. You and butch was the best babysitter on this side of the earth. Rest in peace. I'll see you on the other side
