Clarence Manual Goins

d. October 3, 2021

Mr. Clarence Manual Goins, fondly known as CL, departed this life at his home on Sunday October 3, 2021, at the age of 91.  He was a member of Wallen Ridge Baptist Church.

He was a WWII Army Veteran, farmer and retired from the Tennessee Department of Transportation after 25 years of service. Whether you knew him as CL, Dad, Daddy, Papaw or “Buck” he would always greet you with a big smile and a hearty “come on in.”  CL was proud of sharing his ancestry with anyone who would listen, but his greatest joy was his family especially his grandchildren.  His memory will be cherished and kept alive by those he left behind.

CL was born on December 1, 1929, in Tazewell, TN to Robert Goins and Bessie Hill Goins. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife Iva Jean Batmon Goins, his daughter, Jennifer Goins, grandsons: Chandler Trent and Jerry Michael Goins; great grandchildren:  Jocelyn and Connor Bishop Goins, Payton and Jaycee Lawson; sisters: Elvia Barnett, Bobbie, Goldie, Nancy and Katherine Goins; brothers: Octave, Bill, Coy Hab, Melvinus (Bo) Goins, and Son-in-law Milford Snodgrass.

Left to cherish his memory: sister Mrs. Shirley Ann Snodgrass of Tazewell, TN, son Jerry (Pearl) Goins of Oak Ridge TN, daughters Mrs. Sylvia Snodgrass, Tazewell TN, Mrs. Sandra Thompson, Richmond KY, grandchildren, Paula Goins, Tazewell, TN, Jody (Ashley) Goins, Speedwell, TN, Gregory Trent, Richmond Ky, Todd Goins, Jeremy (Britney) Goins, Tahlena Snodgrass  Jamie Zion Goins, special granddaughter Chasity Goins (Quentin) all of Tazewell, TN, great grandchildren, McKalie Snodgrass, Joshuah Snodgrass, and Ethasn Snodgrass of Tazewell, TN, Aaliyah, Gavyn, and Jacoby Lawson Tazewell, TN,  Sarah and Alyssa Trent Knoxville, TN, Jaylen, Jazzie, Wynter, and Bishop  Goins of Tazewell, TN, Kelci, Jayla, Jevin  and Jerrica Goins Oak Ridge, TN, Jace, Jaxton, Linkyn and Juda Goins Speedwell, TN; great-great granddaughter, Oliva Harper Tazewell, TN.  Close relatives he treated as his own:  Francis Goins, William, Linda, Brenda, Rosie, Berlyn Garrett and Charlene Goins. A host of nieces, nephews, family and friends too numerous to mention.

The family would like to give heartfelt gratitude to the Dietary Department of Claiborne County Hospital for the meals provided and to Smokey Mountain Hospice for the loving care given to our Patriarch. Finally, an acknowledgement to all those unknown drivers who honked and waved at him each day as he sat on the porch.  It truly was the highlight of his day.
