Obituary for Clarence William Aldrich Jr

Clarence William Aldrich Jr, 61, of Sedalia passed away Saturday, May 9, 2020 at University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia,. He was born on December 9, 1958 in Sedalia, son of Clarence William Aldrich Sr. and Kathy Alice Crum, who preceded him in death.

Clarence worked at Pittsburg Corning and loved to cook. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and making them laugh. Clarence liked to play jokes and scare people. He never knew a stranger and always found a way to help anyone in need. Clarence could make a bad situation a better one and would give you the shirt of his back. “Never need to worry, as long as I’m around”, he would say.

He is survived by one son, Joshuah Breshears; two daughters, Amber Prelle and Mary Billingsley; three brothers, Richard W. Aldrich, Steve Aldrich and James Aldrich; one sister, Margie Fleischman; six grandchildren, Leo and Alex Merriman, Kenzie Prelle, Ashton McDaniel, Drew Prelle and Kaidian Prelle; and his significant other, Patricia Smith.
