Clarence was known to be humble and kind man who worked ranch hand man for Jim Munro along with his father Jack Big Eye including other various farmers and ranchers. He was also known to work with horses and had great horsemanship as well as a race jockey here in Siksika. Clarence left from his home on the Siksika Nation between 1973-74 and never returned home after 49 years, His family never knew his whereabouts or had heard from him since then. His parents had searched for him for many years up with no success right until his Father Jack had passed on in 1986. Later on as years went by his youngest brother Gildas had also searched with no success. Recently his late sister Juliana and grandson Shawn also searched with no success. With that Shawn had never stopped searching for his grandfather for 24 years and with success and prayers his search was successful.
