He grew up near Crawford and attended school in that area. The farm life and tending to his cattle was his love, but when times were tough, he worked for a time with the WPA, the Roberts Ranch, for Hubert Knittel as a brick layer, and Woodward County. He married May Ophelia Jackson on September 6, 1937 at Cheyenne and to this union six children were born. In 1954, they purchased the farm where they have lived since that time. Clarence loved to travel and to visit. He could strike up a conservation with anyone around that wanted to reminisce. Clarence was very knowledgeable in how to make something out of nothing and make it work, or putting several things together to make something unique.
