Clifford Hamilton Carpenter

OBITUARY: Houston Chronicle (TX) | 23 December 2008 TX United States
CLIFFORD HAMILTON CARPENTER, Heaven got lucky today, headed their way is a sweet gentle soul who was the kindest, most compassionate and giving brother, husband, father and friend. In memory of Clifford Hamilton Carpenter born October 18, 1921 in Olney, Texas to James Deboe Carpenter Sr. and Mary ArBanner Howard Carpenter. He was preceded in death by his parents, first wife Laura Carpenter, brothers James Deboe Carpenter, Jr., Howard W. Carpenter and sisters Maudie Sue, Mary Merle Wright, Harriett Eugenia Johnson, and grandson John Holder. Clifford is survived by his wife, Bernice Holder Carpenter; daughter, Judy Shelton; sister, Mattie Connally; brother, Joseph Carpenter; daughter, Cheryl Denton; son-in-law, Ron Shelton, grandsons, Trey and Shannon Holder, Eddie, Scott, and Robbie Payne; great-grandsons, Caden and Bryce Payne; and many nieces and nephews. He grew up and graduated from high school in Olney. After graduation he and his cousin hitched to Las Vegas to work on the Hoover Dam Project. Deciding college would be a better choice, he followed his 7 brothers and sisters footsteps by enrolling and graduating from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. Upon leaving college he joined the U.S. Army to serve in World War II, stationed in India as a radio & communications officer. After the war Clifford moved to Houston and began a career with Humble Oil & Refining where he authored 2 U.S. patents in the microwave division; retiring after 35 years of service. Clifford loved to fish in Hawaii and the Gulf of Mexico and it is certain he will find great fishing in Heaven. We will all miss you beyond words, but we have our memories and our love will last forever. Services will be held Friday December 26, 2008 at 12:30 PM in the Memorial Oaks Funeral home Chapel.
