Clarence was a member of Manheim Young Farmers, enjoyed solving jigsaw puzzles, and helping his sons with work on the farm. He and Alta supported their grandchildren by attending their events and nurtured a visitation ministry to members in the church and community.

He is survived by three children: Rose M., wife of Kevin B. Hickernell; Earl E., husband of Sandra Erb Geib; and Barry L., husband of Dawn M. Moyer Geib; all of Manheim; seven grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and a sister: Helen Geib Kowalcyk of Millersville.

In addition to his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by a grandson: Bradley D. Geib; and two siblings: an infant brother, Earl Geib; and a sister, Ruth Becker.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Masonic Village, including Ben Franklin 3 and Masonic Village Hospice, for the compassionate care given to Clarence and his family during his stay there.
