Loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather, and brother, Clarence Minks, 78, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, December 21, 2021. His funeral service will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, December 27, 2021, in the Chapel of Memories at Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home, with Butch Hinkle and John Hinkle officiating.

Clarence was born on July 19, 1943, in Witcher Creek, West Virginia, to Iva Williams and Harry Edward Minks. Clarence was born and raised in West Virginia, where he met his wife, Angel, who he married on April 22, 1977. Clarence loved Angel with every bit of his soul. She was exactly that to him – an Angel sent from heaven. She was his best friend, and he was hers. After 44 years of marriage, it is safe to say that they were soul mates.

They moved to Texas in 1985, where he went to work for the City of Breckenridge until he retired in 2002. Clarence was honest, heartfelt, and always there when you needed him. He was a hard worker and supported his family. He was one of the best handymen you would have ever met. He never called anyone to get the job done; he always did it himself. If he wasn’t fixing something, you could find him listening to gospel music and talking about Jesus. If you were in his presence, he was going to make sure to get a smile out of you with a joke or two.

Clarence was preceded in death by his parents, Iva and Harry Edward; son, Clarence “Jr.” Minks; daughter, Linda Singleton; brother, Lawrence Minks; and sister, Ella Estep.

He is survived by his wife, Angel Minks; daughters, Clara Sue West and husband Glenn of Boomer, West Virginia, Mary Aguirre and husband Jesse of Graham, Texas, Michelle Hinkle and husband John of Spartanburg, South Carolina, and Melissa Minks of Breckenridge, Texas; son, Rondal Minks of Jacksboro, Texas; along with 16 grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.

He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him. Memorial donations in memory of Clarence can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association. Condolences can be made online at
