Atlantic City Says Goodbye To A Great Citizen & County Employee
Today, friends and colleagues of the late Clarence “CC” Davenport are gathering at New Hope Baptist Church in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Because “CC” was such a special man, who touched many lives in the Atlantic County, New Jersey region, we have written two previous articles about his life and times … and, all of those that he touched at work and at play.
If you missed our earlier coverage about “CC,” here are direct links to read them.
“CC” was a beloved patron at The Ducktown Tavern in Atlantic City. They considered him much more than a customer. They viewed “CC” As an ambassador.
The link to our recent article above details that The Ducktown Tavern is leaving a reserved place setting for “CC,” complete with his own reserved sign and an adult beverage set for him. It’s beautiful.
More establishments should remember to remember legends in this fashion.
”CC” was also a beloved career, retired employee with the County of Atlantic. We have heard from many of his former colleagues who have praised “CC.”
For example, here is what Karen Hurley McDonald had to say about “CC” …
CC was a kind and gentle giant. He was always approachable and always there to offer his unconditional support. I never heard him say a bad word about anyone. He was the kind of person you always enjoyed being around. He had a contagious laugh that we will all remember. I will miss him forever and mourn his passing.
Former Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford has also been commenting publicly about the life and passing of “CC.”
