were. He often talked about history, politics, and the news of the day
to anyone he met during his travels. He was a kind-hearted man, and he
loved helping people, regardless of their station in life. He possessed
a good sense of humour, and he loved to have fun. Clare is survived by his siblings,
Merle (Marion) of Ingleside and Inez (Wallace) Byers of Winchester, and
his dear friend, Mahlon Garlough. He was predeceased by his sister,
