Clarence Harrell was born to parents of Martha Knight and the late Hewitt Knight on November 6, 1963, in Brooklyn New York. He was educated in the New York school system at Alexander Hamilton High School.

After graduation, he  began working at Brighton Meadows in Brooklyn, New York. From there, he joined the Navy in October 1984 and served until October of 1992. He was very proud of the time he served, always talking about his naval ship, the USS   Yellowstone (AD-41). Clarence then moved to Norfolk ,VA and held many jobs until he moved to Gates County, NC.

After the move Clarence worked at Perdue until he stopped working to help take care of his mother. In 2021 Clarence’s health declined and he was called home on September 15, 2023.

To know Clarence was to love him. He enjoyed joking around, dancing and singing even though he could not, he still did it. He also had a deep love for his jewelry and music. Clarence will truly be missed.
