Clarence William Shockley

Services for Clarence William Shockley, age 77, were held Nov. 6, 2003, at Hudson Community Church with Pastor Paul Morrison officiating.

Burial followed in Hudson Cemetery.

Clarence Shockley died Nov. 1, 2003, at his home in Hudson, Wyo., two weeks after suffering a serious heart attack.

Clarence was born in Crawford, Neb., May 31, 1926, the second of five children.

He worked with his dad shearing sheep and ranch work, along with his brother, Joe. These were hard times and they worked hard to help their dad feed and clothe the family. Clarence loved horses, especially draft horses and could drive a team.

For several years he worked as a farm and ranch hand in Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado. In 1950, he moved to Tulsa, Okla., and worked at Oklahoma Steel and Casting for 28 years. He took early retirement because of work related injuries.

Clarence loved his family and cared deeply for his friends. He loved to go to Big Reds Cafe and the Ranch Cafe for coffee and to Lander to visit with friends.

He loved to have fun. He was not materialistic. He was down to earth and honest. He read his bible every day.

Clarence is survived by a brother Joe of Arvada, Colo., a sister June Parker of Hudson, numerous nieces and nephews and his little dog "Jake."

Clarence was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Golda Shockley, birth mother Daisy Shockley, sisters Sydney Mae Williams of Texas and Jean Fankhouser of Nebraska, and step-brother Floyd Baughman of Lusk, Wyo.
