Clarence has been involved with western culture all his life.

He helped countless others with 4-H learning how to rope and so on. During all the high school rodeos, you could find him letting stock out, pulling the barrier, doing whatever needed to be done at the roping chutes, then over to the bucking chutes to pull flank straps. He helped out his youngest with the National High School Rodeo in Gillette, Wyoming, each year it was held there. Not only was Clarence a great leader in the arena but also in life helping mold the lives of many young people.
Clarence has won several buckles, saddles, tack, etc. rodeoing – mainly roping. He’s held several positions and been on difference committees for 4-H, high school rodeo and ropings. Special honor would be being a veteran of our great country.
