Clarence was born November 22, 1922 in The Grove, Texas to William and Martha Dube. He was baptized at St. Paul Lutheran Church, The Grove, Texas on December 3, 1922 and confirmed in the Lutheran faith on April 5, 1936. His Confirmation Verse is Acts 4:12 - "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." He attended school in The Grove and Belton, finishing high school at Concordia Lutheran College in Austin. Clarence was class of 1944 at Texas Agricultural & Mechanical College. He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant after his junior year and served as a paratrooper during WWII. Following the war, he completed his studies at A&M and graduated with a degree in Animal Husbandry. Thereafter he entered pharmacy school at the University of Texas, received his pharmacy degree in 1948, and worked as a pharmacist in Houston for several years. Clarence entered Medical School at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in 1959. Following graduation in 1963, he established a successful medical practice in north-east Houston. He was co-founder of Houston Northwest Medical Center where he moved his practice in 1973. He closed his private practice in 1998, but continued practicing medicine as locum tenums and finally as attending physician at area LTAC Hospitals in their hyperbaric wound care centers until fully retiring in 2009. Throughout his career he touched many many lives. Clarence loved sports, including all the Houston professional teams, but even more so, his beloved Fightin' Texas Aggies. He was team doctor for MacArthur High School for many years. Clarence was an avid hunter and travelled extensively. He was an active member of his church, Immanuel Lutheran in the Houston Heights. Clarence regularly supported charitable organizations including the Spring Tri-Club and Junior League of North Harris County. He was a member of the American Medical Association, Harris County Medical Society, Lyons Club, Former Students Association Century Club, Corps of Cadets Association, Twelfth Man Foundation, and many more civic and charitable organizations. Clarence was a man of strong Christian faith, and thus we know he is saved by grace through faith. Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-14.
