Clancy was an over the road truck driver for 54 years. The last 25 years he worked for Hansen Trucking out of Jerseyville, IL. “The best 25 years of his trucking career.” He was still working full time at the start of his illness. He loved being a truck drive and never wanted to retire.
He was a lover of Country music. He and granddaughter Courtney sang the words to every Patsy Cline song when cleaning and waxing the semi-truck on weekends. A special good bye to his partner in crime, niece, Gina.
