    We didn’t know each other in person, but he always conveyed a sense of caring for others. Especially mentioned to me how much he loved his daughters and wanted the best for them. He was protective, funny, caring, and a bit unconventional. Those were the things that made him stand out to me as a good person with struggles like we all have, but a big heart. He will be missed by me and the other lives he touched even through a silly video game. My deepest condolences to his family.

    Our buddy “Detts” had a huge heart, a passion for helping others, a tremendous intelligence, and a wit to match. He will be missed more than many will know. Our online community will be grieving for a long time.

    I’m so sorry for your loss,God be with all of you. It’s so hard when you are use to someone being there and then one day they are gone. Thank God for all the memories we still have of all our. Loved ones.

  • I’m so sorry to read this heartbreaking news. I had no idea Clint passed away until today. Clint was a good friend of mine. We met through a video gaming community and we shared our gaming experiences..especially Redneck Rampage. I will always miss you my friend. Happy gaming on the other side!


  • My name is Ashley, im his daughter, and even now I had no idea this existed. Thank you to everyone who loved and cared for him. He was huge into video games, loved the communities and would brag about his victories in his games and his discord friends. One of my first thoughts after the initial death was “what do i tell all his online friends and colleges who i had no contact with. He passed away a few months before my 16th birthday, and my sister being even younger.

    again, to anyone who even sees this, thank you for caring for my father.
