Clarence Ronald Thornwell, 74, departed this life on July 5, 2018.

He was born May 10, 1944 in Rock Hill, South Carolina to the late James and Willeen Thornwell.

Clarence confessed his faith in Christ at an early age. He was a faithful and devoted member of the Historic Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church of Port Huron. Clarence loved the Lord! He was often moved by the Holy Spirit while listening and hearing the preacher preach. Clarence loved and supported his church.

When asked what most family and friends remember about Clarence, they all agree that he could hold on to a conversation what seemed like forever. We all loved Clarence and knew he had a passion for conversation. Clarence retired from Lear Corporation and was currently working for Goodwill Industries.
