SANDUSKY

Clarence W. Seavers touched many lives and served as a role model -- that's how he'll be remembered.

Throughout his funeral, politicians, family and mourners recounted how the prominent Democrat, tireless community volunteer, World War II veteran and civil rights pioneer impacted his community.

"He was a role model in life and will continue to be a role model for the thousands of people he touched," Sandusky ex officio Mayor Dennis Murray Jr. said. More than 300 people packed into The Great Room of the Ohio Veterans Home on Saturday to pay their respects to "Mr. Democrat."
