He was a member of Bethlehem United Methodist Church. Clarence worked for Gloucester Seafood Company and was a retired waterman. He was an avid foxhunter, and loved the outdoors, working in his garden and hanging out with friends at Rick's Country Store drinking coffee. He loved his family and was the most devoted husband, father and grandfather and never met a stranger. We will miss you terribly, but you will live on in our memories until we see you again.
He was preceded in death by his parents, James L. and Turner Owens and Odell and Katy Blake; and brothers, James Leslie Owens and Odell Blake, Jr.
He is survived by his loving wife of 48 years Frances; children, David, Stephen (Jennifer), Ronald (Hope), Crystal (Donnie); grandchildren, Stephen, Sterling, Breck, Will, Michael, Kristen and Jacob; and great grandchildren, Lexi and Noah.

The family will receive friends Sunday, June 22, 2014 from 7 until 8:30 p.m. at Hogg Funeral Home, Gloucester Point.
