Clarence was born the son of Theodore and Lillian (Klapper) Treder on March 8, 1941 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was united in marriage with Christine Ann Jahns on June 2, 1962 at St. Mary Catholic Church, Fox Lake, WI. Clarence was a devout Catholic; he was a member of Sacred Heart Parish in Horicon, where he was a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus Council 14478.
Clarence was a jack-of-all-trades and through his work as a tile layer, he worked in buildings all over the area and the state. He was easy-going and always had a joke for everyone. Clarence was the first to volunteer when asked to do so and he loved to sell tickets for the various church and Knights of Columbus raffles. Clarence also loved to fish, but never out of a boat, instead he preferred his trusty cane pole along shore.
Clarence is survived by his children, Julie (Chip) Brabbit of Sheldon, Michelle (Allen) Jaeger of Juneau, Jennifer Treder of Juneau, JoAnne (David) Link of Juneau, and Theodore (Patric Meyer) Treder of Kaukauna; three sisters, Ludgeria (Robert) Jonas of Randolph, Alice (Edward) Borkowski of Waupun, and Ruthanne (Matt) Mohr of Pembine; his brothers-in-law, Eugene “Pete” Jahns of Beaver Dam and Curtis (Nancy) Jahns of Juneau; 14 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Clarence was preceded in death by his parents; his wife; his daughter, Lorie Johannes; a grandson, Lukas Jaeger; his brother, Joseph Treder; his brother-in-law, Robert “Joe” Jahns; his twin sisters-in-law, Janet King and Janice Jozefowski; and his mother and father-in-law.
If desired, memorials may be made to Sacred Heart Catholic Church or the Knights of Columbus Council 14478 in Horicon.
