Clarence graduated from Ogden High School. He moved to Morgan where he resided for 16 years before returning to Ogden where he has lived since.
He enjoyed working alongside his brother, Gary, at their co-owned auto and snowmobile shop, Clair’s Specialized Service. Clarence was a man who would give you the shirt off his back, but would also give you his straightforward advice. You always knew where he stood.
Clarence loved life. Some of his most favorite times were spent snowmobiling, golfing and fishing.
He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Clarence is survived by his sons, Gary (Tamako), North Las Vegas, Nevada and James (Val) Morgan, Utah; 7 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; brother, D. Gary Nelson (JoAnn) Milton; and sister, Lettie L. (Terry) Taylor, Roy.
