Clarence was a founding partner and enthusiastic leader of the Chicagoland Lutheran Educational Foundation, and all our students had a special place in his heart. Please join us for a memorial service celebrating his life at Messiah Lutheran Church, 6201 W Patterson, Chicago on Saturday, October 4, at 11 am.
