When he returned, he settled in Sudbury and worked for Falconbridge Nickel Mines. He met Catherine Phelan in Chapeau and came back to Sudbury where they raised their family.

He and Catherine had seven children. Brian (Wendy), Nancy (Murray), Wayne (Mona), Janice (Mark), Maureen (Brian), Neil (Lorna), and Glen (Sherry). He had the gift of 22 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

Clarence was one of 10 children. Ellis, Theresa, Ellard, Margaret Rose, Chrisita, Tersita, Crystal, Pauline, and Eldon.
