Clarence started his public service in law enforcement, then later in life to the fire service where he was quickly promoted to Chief for the San Rafael Vol. Fire Department.

There was no such thing as a quick errand or task, he always found someone to talk to and catch up with.\n\nHe loved woodworking, ironworking, camping, barbecuing, and most importantly, spending time with his family and friends. God is a great gardener; he plants his seeds, and on August 31st, God pulled a beautiful flower. Fly high, we will miss you, but this is not goodbye. We love you so much! May God make you feel welcomed and comfortable settling into your new home...\n\nClarence is survived by his wife: Grace Marez, children: Dyvin (Ashley) Marez and Brandi (Jorge) Salcido, mother: Juanita (Gallegos) Marez, sisters: Jane Marez-Labelle, and Beverely (Victor) Diaz, grandchildren: Rio Marez, Desaray, Laela, and Alberto Salcido, Chewy Marez and numerous nephews and nieces.\n\nHe was preceded in death by his father: Andres Marez, and son: Raymond Marez.\n\nPallbearers will be Victor Diaz, Lawrence Chavez, Wilfred Blea, Carlos Vallejos, Joshua Salazar, and Albert Gallegos.\n\nHonorary Pallbearers will be all of his grandchildren.
