  7. Many, many fond memories run through my mind and make me smile. He had a very strong rugged presence, but had a HUGE gentle heart for friends. His zany humor could not be duplicated Claude was an Original! When we all met up at the 650 each week all we did was laugh which kept the bond of friendship tight within our West Elmwood Family. He and his buddy James Brown were long time friends. They would argue then a few minutes later have a beer and laugh that’s just how he was, he loved life and made you love it too. Rest in peace dear brother Claude. You will always hold a place in my heart where your memory will live. To his loving family that I’ve known from childhood, I pray that God’s comfort and peace will help you through this hard time. I want you to know you are loved and being prayed for.

  8. My prayers are with all of you. RIP Claude Your Family Loved you. Amen

  9. Deepest and heartfelt condolences from the Ashley / Bangoura families.
