Clarence was born Saturday, June 13, 1931, to the late Harley and Grace Blair in Peebles, Ohio. He proudly served his country by enlisting in the US Navy. He attended the University of Dayton and earned his Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice. Clarence worked for the City of Dayton as a Sergeant in the Police Department and also as a Court Bailiff for Dayton Municipal Courts. He was very active in many churches, and was an elder and founding member of Beavercreek Christian Church in Beavercreek, Ohio. Clarence truly reflected Christ to those around him. He loved watching television, especially the Andy Griffith and Carol Burnett shows. His hobbies included playing golf, reading (he was particularly fond of the Sunday comics), napping, and going for walks, but mostly spending time with his family and friends. He was loving, kind, gentle, wise, generous, humble and a true servant of God. Clarence is preceded in death by his parents; and loving wife of 65 years, Janice Louise Blair.
