Clarence was born in Saginaw Michigan on March 27, 1927 to the late Adolph and Lydia (List) Radewahn. He was baptized and confirmed at Holy Cross Lutheran Church where he attended day school. He graduated from A.H.H.S

In 1972 The Radewahn Agency merged with the Roggow Agency of Hemlock and became Mid-Valley Agency.
