Clarence Ogden was born on December 23, 1929, in Foster, Oklahoma, to Coleman and Florence Green. They eventually moved to Fort Worth, Texas, where he graduated in 1947 from Trimble Technical High School in Fort Worth, Texas. Later, he graduated from Multnomah University in Portland, Oregon, in 1965.

 

Throughout his life, he worked hard and played hard. He worked in construction and later as a real estate broker until he retired. He loved keeping active and enjoyed playing sports, including football, basketball, baseball, golf, bowling, and more, some into his 80s and 90s. With his love of sports, he coached a youth church basketball league while living in Thousand Palms, California. Throughout his life, he also had a passion for fishing and hunting of any kind, which he continued even into his 90s. Ogden was gifted with carving and creating beautiful wooden birds. He loved to create helpful inventions, as well, like his “leaf bailer” and pull-behind “riding edger,” which were so helpful to him in his later years. Even into his 90s and up to his last day, he was thinking of everything he still wanted to accomplish.

 

Ogden and Marcia, his late wife, lived in Thousand Palms, California, before moving to Runaway Bay, Texas. They loved doing everything together, including volunteering at church, going on cruises, fishing, camping, and going to the games of their favorite semi-pro baseball team, to name a few. Marcia had the gift of hospitality, and together, they created a wonderful, happy life.

 

They also had many wonderful friends and dear neighbors in Runaway Bay and The Bay Church in Texas, and in Thousand Palms, California. They very much enjoyed and appreciated their friendship. Ogden lived a full, adventurous, and active life with determination and grit. He will be missed! Our deepest gratitude to his neighbors, especially John and Carol, Barry and MaryAnn, and to his hospice team.

 

Ogden is survived by Rosie Mae (Phillips Green) Barrett, former wife of 50 years and the mother of his six children; Rosanne, Marcy, Becky, Beth, Chris, and Stan; ten grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

 

Ogden is preceded in death by Marcia Kay (Fischbach) Green of TX, his wife of 20 years; son, Stan Green; grandson, Daniel Vetter; parents, Coleman Ogden Green & Florence Virgie (Ramsey) Green of Fort Worth, TX; his siblings, Earl Green, Edward Green (Faye) of Corpus Christi, Olga Faust (Willie Lee) of Lawton, TX, Rosalie Ingram (Jess) of Fort Worth, TX, Eula Faye Driver (Bill) of Crowley, TX.
