My thoughts and prayers are with Glenda and Sheila and their families. I knew Mr. and Mrs. Clarke growing up in the neighborhood and spending many happy days hanging out at their welcoming home, and many hours at the Import Bazaar. My heart goes out to you both knowing the man and dad that he was. I will always remember him fondly.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to The Clarke family in this time of sorrow and remembrance. My father and I both worked with Glen during his time at the fire department. He and two other firefighters had a very close call during the Kress department store fire in 1963. He was one of the finest fire officers I ever worked with being fair and compassionate to everyone. I will alway remember him coming in to the day room in the firehouse and stomping his feet wondering what everyone was doing. Rest In Peace my friend.
