Canton- Clarence Currie Sholar, Jr., age 83, passed away on Saturday, December 14, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Elizabethtown, NC September 18, 1936, Clarence was the son of the late Clarence Currie Sholar, Sr., and the late Flora MacMillan Sholar.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 59 years, Joan Hyde Sholar; his children, Currie, Tracy, and Amy; his three grandchildren, Sarah, Lauren, and Chandler; and one great-grandchild, Dezmond.

Clarence had retired from the United States Air Force and was a veteran of the Vietnam War. He later went on to work for the US Postal Service with 34 years of dedicated service, and he had also operated a small painting business in his spare time. He was a lifelong member of the Church of God of Prophecy in Canton. Mr. Sholar was a man who loved his family, his country, and his Lord. We rejoice and give thanks for his blessed life.

A memorial service with military rites to honor the life of Mr. Sholar will be held at 2:00 pm Thursday, December 19, 2019 in the chapel of Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Canton. The family will be receiving friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service.

I worked with Clarence at the Processing and Distribution Mail Center in Asheville for years. He was a good friend who I looked up to. He was always excited to see me and talk with me. He was a hard worker who painted the Facility in bright red, white, and blue colors. I had not seen him in years, and I just now learned of his passing. We are all now a little less well off with Clarence no longer with us. Please know that my prayers are with the family during this time. I know that he will surely be missed by all.
