Clarence was born on April 29, 1946 in Cherokee, Iowa, a son to Floyd James and Viola Mae (Birch) Miles. Clarence was a simple kind-hearted man who enjoyed karaoke and listening to the “oldies”, especially the King, Elvis Presley, his idol. Clarence’s favorite song was “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You”. Clarence participated in Pool Leagues at Noonan’s and Instant Replay. His 8-Ball breaks were some of his proudest accomplishments.
