I worked many years ago with Clarence. Although he may not have known it, he taught me a great deal. As a young supervisor in the furniture industry, I watched Clarence's attention to detail and the pride he took with his work. He gladly shared his many year's of experience and helped train and guide me in what to do to prevent issues. There is not many weeks that pass that I don't think fondly of him. He was truly a man I respected and am glad that he was a part of my early work life. Sadly, I thought many times of reaching out to him but just allowed to slip away. I hope the family can take solace in knowing that I am just one of many that Clarence influenced in a positive way.

Dear Fox Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Clarence for many years at Broyhill. He was one of the finest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was never without a smile or a great story. He will be greatly missed.
