Clarence J. Waldron of Orlando passed away peacefully on November 12, 2012. He was born April 23, 1923 in Torrington, CT. - the last of 13 children. Clarence proudly served in the United States Army, during World War II with the 14th Armored division, under Gen. George Patton. He worked for Orlando Utilities Commission for 26 years, retiring in 1985. Clarence was a member of the Orlando Utilities Retiree's and the Gem and Mineral Club.
He is loved by his wife of 68 years, Geraldine; his son David Waldron; daughter Kathleen Patterson and her husband Roy; granddaughter Amy Patterson; great-granddaughter Audrey Kate Schmiechen and extended family. We are so blessed to have Clarence, Dad, or "Pa" as he was known to his family for his guidance, joy, sharing his memories & stories and his endearing love for his great-granddaughter.
In Pa's journal, which he kept everyday, he wrote on March 14, 2008- "Baby Girl Audrey born 5lbs10oz. Kathi called at 8:30 am to say Audrey is doing fine..... Ryan put her in my arms, what a feeling, what a doll, perfect. I hope GOD will give me one more year to see her grow". ..Well how wonderful Pa got over 4 years to see her grow - dance ballet and tap and he loved her to recite the Pledge of Allegiance standing so straight.
A special thanks to Health Central Park, Wing 5, and Hospice of the Comforter for their kindness, care and support. In lieu of flowers or donations, we simply ask that you love your family and friends unconditionally as Clarence has done.
