Clarence Lorenzo Nimine Weefur, son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, relative and friend to countless many, went to his heavenly home on August 1, 2020.
Clarence lived a blessed life, full of love, creativity, and learning.
Born in Monrovia, Liberia to Dr. Moses Kronyanh Weefur, Sr., and Mrs. Cecelia Adeline Stryker Weefur, he was the grandson of Mr. Tieh Gbei Kronyanh and Mrs. Gbei Nimine Kronyanh, and Rev. Richard Lane Stryker and Mrs. Sarah Cooper Stryker.
Clarence leaves to lovingly remember him his beloved wife, Josephine Acinta Russ Weefur, and his seven daughters: Weahde Chantal Weefur Greaves (“Didi”), Therence Roberta Weefur (“Teri”), Sara Natasha Weefur-Burney (“Tashi”), U.S. Army Major Gifty Nyounohtay Weefur, U.S. Army Sergeant Acinta Cecelia Wefuehde Weefur, Melody Tanju Weefur-Krotká, Camille Musu-Gbeh Weefur, and his sons-in-law, William Elwood Greaves, Jr. and Martin Krotky.
His 10 grandchildren will cherish and recount every memory he created with them, every story he animatedly told them, and every life lesson he enthusiastically shared with them: Liam Nimene Greaves, Ann-Therese Ashai Greaves, Ausar Nyema Yow Weefur-Coleman, Nadia Simone Burney, Chantal Esi Greaves, Makai Antonio Young, Myla Acinta Young, Harmony Krotká, Princess Zaila Krotká, and Melody Zuri Krotká.
His siblings, who have the longest memories with him, are comforted that he is now at peace in the arms of the Lord: Kronyanh Moses Weefur, Richard Emmett Russ (Emily), Moses Kronyanh Weefur, Jr. (Agnes), Cecil Chea Weefur (Shari), Julia Yudeh Weefur Doe (Eric), Amos Moses Weefur, and Frank Weefur. His siblings Victoria “Darling” Weefur and Famatta Gibson Caesar predeceased him.
Clarence also leaves his only living uncle and aunt, Brigadier General, R.L. (ret) Jehu Stryker and Mrs. Amelia Stryker, and a host of beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends with memories, laughter, and love.
Clarence, being the unique individual that he was, had specific wishes for those who want to honor his life.
He asked that instead of flowers and other gifts, his loved ones donate to Each Child Counts Foundation (ECCF) to benefit Liberian children’s education, supporting a school and students in Clay Ashland, Liberia. https://eachchildcounts.com/.Alternatively or additionally, you may make good use of AmazonSmile’s charity donation program to select ECCF to receive proceeds from eligible purchases from Amazon.

A storyteller and altruist, Clarence also requested that his loved ones “write, in two hundred characters or less, advice or admonition to a young person to better their life.” Please send those nuggets of advice to email@example.com.
Additionally, Clarence’s family knows that those who love him have beaucoup stories and anecdotes about him, and encourages everyone to share their fond memories in the “Stories” section of his memorial site. https://www.forevermissed.com/clarenceweefur
The Weefur family will host a celebratory and thanksgiving memorial once the world is safe again. In the meantime, we will celebrate Clarence’s life in a private ceremony to be live-streamed on Saturday, August, 22nd at 10am EDT. Please check this link for updates and details on the stream to be posted the night before: https://www.forevermissed.com/clarenceweefur
Clarence’s family leaves you with a quote from his writing to bring a smile to your face as you fondly remember one of the most special people God ever created.
