For most of his life, Clarence worked in the structural metals industry and owned two businesses, Boltco and Pruitt & Clark.

While at All-Pro he was instrumental in providing building materials for both AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park in Arlington.
After his family, Clarence’s true passion in life was raising and racing Quarter Horses. He loved every aspect of raising horses, from breeding, to raising a foal, to watching them at the track.
He was an avid sports fan and particularly loved watching the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys, but still had a fondness for the New York Yankees and his childhood hero Yogi Berra.
