Clarence "Clancy" Wilson

Clancy Wilson"Clancy" was a long-time member of the Original Hobo Band. He usually sat quietly in the trumpet section, occasionally contributing a quick wit (and surprised expression) when a general criticism of the trumpet section was in the offing.

He was a retired Methodist pastor. In addition to being an active member of the Hobo Band, he was a member of several other amateur musical organizations, including the John Walter Cape Community Band and the South Jersey Area Wind Ensemble (Charter member).

An active musician and organizer, he was a founder of the Jazz Vesper services in Ventnor.

He was 75 years young. A celebration of his life was held at Trinity United Methodist Church, 7117 Ventnor City Ave., Ventnor, NJ.
