Mr tritley was legendary. I saw him occasionally and enjoyed every conversation we ever had. Great man…great family
My condolences for the unexpected loss of your loved one. I bowled with Clarence for the last ten years and was amazed at how well he bowled and got around for his age. He told me his secret was a “Go RubyGo” supplement which I actually gave on order. My wife also told me she shopped many years with her family at Union Clothing of which they would wait for Clarence to wait on them. She said she was always impressed on the way he dressed!
Clarence was a very nice man. I played pionochle with him. His death comes as a shock. He will be missed by many people.
May God comfort the family. I will miss him dearly.
