Candy Clawson (Spence) (1986)

My father, Mike Clawson, died from complications of open heart surgery.

My father graduated in the class of 1962. He married my mother, Penne Abbott, in October of 1965 and they had two children: Neal (graduated from DCHS in 1985) and me, Candy (graduated from DCHS in 1986). My parents divorced in 1968.

My dad married Pam Woods (graduated from DHS in 1959).

Dad is dearly missed.
