Clarence was born on August 23, 1930 in Edwards, NY to the late Albert and Maude (Sparling] Skeldon. He graduated from Edwards High School in 1948. He attended Coyne Electrical School in Chicago, IL and worked as an electrician throughout much of his career.

They lived in Richville until 2009 when they retired to Leesburg, FL. Prior to moving to FL, Clarence and Audrey spent a decade as “snowbirds” with summers spent in New York State and winters in Mesa, AZ where they found joy in square dancing. His survivors include his wife Audrey (Leesburg, FL), daughter Carol (Marina del Rey, CA), son David and daughter-in-law Heather (St. Marys, GA), grandson Evan and his wife Brooke (Jacksonville, FL), and great-grandson Parker (Jacksonville, FL).
