Clarence D. “Del” Armstrong, 76, of New Philadelphia, died Thursday, November 5, 2020 following a recent illness.
A son of the late C. Leonard and Genevieve (Lucas) Armstrong, Del was born March 25, 1944 at Mt. Olivett, Ohio.
Del graduated from Barnesville High School in 1962. He then entered the United States Army and served in Thailand during the Vietnam War. One of his greatest passions was serving the City of New Philadelphia as a Firefighter which he did for 26 years. Following his retirement from the fire department, Del served as a driver for SEA for several years. He was a lifetime member of the New Philadelphia V.F.W. Post #1445.
He was an avid outdoorsman who especially enjoyed hunting and fishing as well as geocaching and bike riding. More than anything however, Del cherished the time spent with his family. He was quite fond of the memories and times shared with them during vacations and family cruises.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Blanche (Clark) Armstrong whom he married on February 15, 1964; three daughters, Gena (Mark) Incarnato of New Philadelphia, Terri (David) Sholl of Johnstown, Ohio and Deanna (Jeff) Horn of New Philadelphia; his grandchildren, Gabriel and Nicholas Incarnato, Brandon (Stephanie) and Tyler (Sarah) Sholl and Brock, Brant and Brody Horn; three sisters, Ruth Murphy, Jane (Bill) Sullivan and Pat (Roy) Clark all of Barnesville and many other family and friends.
Del was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, James and John Armstrong and a grandson, Bryce Horn.
