Clarence "Red" Love

May 20, 2018

Clarence J. "Red" Love, 93, of Binghamton, passed away peacefully in his home on Sunday, May 20th, 2018. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 55 years, Margaret "Marge" (Podany) in 2010; his parents Clarence and Margarite; sisters Lois (Blasko) and Justina; nieces Denise Chereck and Emily Grant; and nephew Clarence Mayo. He is survived by his two sons and a daughter-in-law, Jim of Binghamton, and Rick and Linda (Mazurek) and their son Matt of New Braunfels, TX; older brother Ernest of West Endicott, NY; sister-in-law Esther of West Corners, NY; nephew Ernie Mayo and wife Ann of Hiawassee, GA; niece "Cynthy" and husband Joe of Endicott; and many friends near and far, especially Tony Fabian, whose decades-long friendship meant a great deal. Red was born in 1924, attended UE High School, and proudly served his country in the US Marines as an aircraft mechanic / Crew Chief in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. At war's end he lived for a time in San Antonio, TX and began driving charter buses, a pursuit he continued for decades after returning to the Triple Cities as a part-time driver for Shafer and Martz Touring Cos.; day trips to Yankee or Shea Stadium with Dad at the
wheel were an unforgettable part of our childhood summers. He was principally employed as a Heat Treat Technician at IBM-Endicott for 38 years until his retirement in 1984, all 3rd-shift by choice. Dad was a kind and gentle soul who always saw the good in everyone and was ever ready to extend a helping hand. The family will welcome friends at the Bednarsky Funeral Home, 96 Glenwood Ave., Binghamton on Friday, June 1st from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. prior to a brief memorial / remembrance service. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery in Johnson City. In lieu of flowers, please consider instead a donation in Red's name to the worthy charity of your choice.
