Clarence Claude Brown of Goldendale passed away at his home on February 27, 2021.
Clarence was born in Vancouver, Washington, to Claude and Josephine Brown on August 13, 1959. The youngest of six and the only boy, his sisters say his feet never touched the ground until he was three years old. He attended elementary school in his hometown of Camas, Washington. He finished his education in the school of hard knocks.
Clarence is survived by his daughter, Maggie, and two sons, Montana and Dillion; sisters: Dolly Stalcup, Mary Baker, and Martha Stalcup; two granddaughters; a grandson; and numerous nieces and nephews. Clarence is preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, Dorothy and Dee; and a nephew, Thomas Baker.
Clarence never knew a stranger. He loved people, and they loved him. He had the gift of gab and loved to tell stories.
Due to medical issues, Clarence couldn’t work a normal job. He truly loved going with brother-in-law Bill Baker in the Devin Oil tow truck or helping Mary at the Shell station in Arlington. He enjoyed being around people, and they enjoyed him.
The family plans to have a summer get-together and spread his ashes at his favorite location.
