I worked with Claude at Toter years ago. He proved himself one of the most respectable and upstanding guys I have met in my lifetime. I always enjoyed talking with him. He was a man of God and loved visiting churches. I lost contact with him in the past years. I would ask about him to others from the Harmony area. Great guy! My prayers to the family in your loss, RIP Claude!
