Clarence Junior Blake, 64 of Sebring passed away at his home on Wednesday, October 17, 2018. Clarence was born March 1, 1954 in Sebring, Ohio to the late Robert and Nancy (Baddley) Blake. Clarence worked as a machinist at CMI Industries. Outside of work Clarence loved to fish and golf and enjoyed playing games. Clarence had a tough outer shell that was hard to break but once you got to know him he was the kindest and most sincere person you could ever meet; he would give you the shirt off his back to help you. Above all he enjoyed his time with his family especially his grandchildren.
Clarence is survived by a wife Chris (White) Blake; children Jeremy Blake, Michelle (Eric) Shields and Erick (Heather) Blake; grandchildren Shawn Blake, Sadie Vizzuso, Dillon Blake, Tori Shields, Hunter Shields and Avianna Blake; brothers and sisters LucyAnn Ziegler, Barb Barringer, Susan Reed, Dave Blake, Sandy Gandee and Nancy Brooks.
