He enjoyed life to its fullest. His first love was his family and friends, who were very important to him, especially his nephew, Miles.

Clint loved going to see the Patriots play. He also enjoyed his time at the beach, listening to country music, and going to see Jimmy Buffet. Clint loved his recent adventure to Wyoming with his friend J.T. He was employed by Contemporary Landscaping for many years.

Clint is survived by his mom and stepfather, Cindy and Tim Corner, and his sister Holly Wallace, her husband Andrew, and their son Miles. He was predeceased by his father, Peter Griesser.

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one,
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the way,
of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun,
of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, Sept. 3 from 11 a.m. to noon at the Chapman, Cole and Gleason Funeral Home in Oak Bluffs. A service will follow at noon at the funeral home with the Rev. Dr. Roger Spinney officiating.

Family and friends will gather following the service at the Portuguese American Club in Oak Bluffs. Please bring a dish to share.
