Olivet Primary School, Holmwood Practical Training Center (PTC), The College of Arts Science and Technology in Jamaica, and Brooklyn Technical in NYC. On November 1, 1952, he married Pearl Hart, the love of his life on the Island of Jamaica. Clarence held various employment positions. His last employment in Jamaica was at the University of the West Indies (Foreman) and in New York City he worked at Industrial Displays Inc. (Manager). Clarence was also a Realtor and Co-Founder of Remit Real Estate Company – Long Island NY. He was a highly skilled carpenter and cabinet maker, whose podium design was selected to be used for one of President Nixon’s speeches. In 1952 Clarence was innated into the Royal Phoenix Lodge #24 Lodge in Jamaica. He was passionate and deeply committed to the Lodge where he was able to provide leadership, social action, spiritual guidance and service to his fellow men and women. Over time his leadership skills and business acumen in the Lodge elevated him to the office of Illustrative Grand then Past Illustrative Grand (P.I.G). After migrating to the United States in 1970 he affiliated with the Tuscan Lodge #11. Through his Mechanic journey he attained the office of District Grand Master followed by Venable Past Grand Master and then Patriarch of the Alpha District Grand Lodge College of Past Grand Masters. In his spare time Clarence enjoyed spending time with his family, lodge members, church members and friends. He enjoyed playing sports like cricket, soccer, swimming and dominoes. He was often known for giving “6 love” to his opponents in a domino game. In fact, many here today may have been the recipients of one or two six loves from Clarence. Clarence was a very kind, generous and spiritual man, who lived his life helping others. He would leave home often to visit the sick at home or in a hospital, where he offered prayers and support. He served on the Deacon board at Saint Albans Congregational Church - United Church of Christ for over 30 years. There were many moments when Clarence was called upon by friends and family for advice, speaking at weddings and other events, attending funerals and blessing homes. Clarence was a man that led by example, demonstrated strong principles, family values, love for people, leadership skills, honesty and integrity. He had the gift of “Calm” and “Strong Interpersonal Skills” that was able to resolve sometimes very heated arguments or disagreements between individuals or groups. He was that “Calm” in the room and the person in the background that brought about peace and resolutions. He will be truly missed for his contributions to family, friends and strangers. He was a dedicated servant to our Lord and Savior - Jesus Christ. Rest in Peace Daddy.
