Clare was a graduate of GR Catholic Central and served his country valiantly in the Army Air Corps during World War II in the Pacific Theater. Clare loved Lake Michigan, the Detroit Tigers, Lions and the Red Wings, trips to the casino, and Florida vacations. He worked for over 35 years at Kelvinator and actively enjoyed retirement for another 35 years. Above all else, he loved his family, loved family get-togethers, and was always the life of the party.

  2. Lewis Family,
    It was a pleasure and honor to have Clare a part of our Community. I always looked forward to seeing him when I stopped in. He always had a smile on his face and a nice quick laugh that was addicting. We talked about all his favorite sports teams that happen to be mine too. I’ll never forget the first day he moved in. He has a beautiful family that is full of life and love. Thoughts and prayers to you all. Clare will be missed.
