Clarence Leroy Proctor of Irrigon, Oregon, passed away March 4, 2023 in Hermiston, Oregon at the age of 71. He was born January 12, 1952 to Leroy “Rocky” and Juanita (Hale) Proctor. He grew up on the family ranch in Irrigon, Oregon and graduated from Riverside High School in 1971. He married Brenda Pourier on February 7, 1970.

Clarence loved the outdoors and spent much of his youth hunting and fishing with his family and close friends. He could fix almost anything, he was a welder and pipefitter by trade. He loved to work, and his career choice kept him on the road most of his life, which he thoroughly enjoyed. He spent many years traveling, while working, in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California and Alaska until his retirement. He made many friends along his journey who enjoyed his sense of humor and ability to always have a good time.
He is survived by his three children; Holli (Joel) Clucas, Wendi Proctor and Russell Proctor, four grandchildren; Cole Clucas, Jaycie Perry, Andrew Byres and Sydnee Byres, one great-granddaughter; Eden Perry, his mother; Juanita Proctor, four siblings; Patricia (Karl) Smith, Mike (Kay) Proctor, Mary Ann (Barry) Munkers and Theresa Proctor-Reece, as well as several nieces and nephews.
