Sending you and your family hugs, and prayers.

  11. Clint, I remember when I was a lil young guy, Aunt Frances would let me sleep in your bed and Uncle Nivan would tell me that you were going to get me if you came home and found me asleep in your bed….lol. I’ve always looked up to you even though we were miles apart, it was always great to be around you and talk to you. You’ve been a friend to so many people over the years that you’re probably more like family to them! We’re all going to miss you a lot, but I know one day I will see you again and we’ll catch up on things. Love you much cousin…….I’m grateful for that!

Clint my friend went home to soon but he is in a better place and I will see him again one day. My prayers go out to the entire family, friends and love ones of our dear friend.

  31. I remember the first time I met Clint when he was interviewing to join the Apple store in North Point. There was no way I couldn’t hire him. We benefited so much from his experience, wisdom, and humor. I know he had a profound effect on everyone he interacted with, whether it was customers or his fellow colleagues. He knew how to bring joy to so many and was a huge shoulder of support. After wishing him Happy Birthday recently, it never occurred to me of a world without Clint. I’m happy to have known him, laughed with him, and had him by my side while we worked together at the store. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

  34. While I am incredibly saddened for the passing of my friend, I am very thankful for being blessed to have had Clint enrich my life. He was such a great advocate for our cause of assisting others. Without Clint’s involvement much of the growth with myself and SightTech would not have been possible. Clint will always be remembered as part of our SightTech family.

    Thank you my friend.

    Deepest sympathies,

    Michael
