Clarence, known to his family and friends as "Coy" was born January 12, 1935, in Arnaudville. Most of his career was being a farmer and he loved being outside on his tractor doing what he loved. He enjoyed taking trips to the casino, cooking, gardening, and cutting his grass on his Cub Cadet lawnmower. You would often see Coy riding around on his lawnmower visiting his neighbors. He took joy in having company over and drinking many cups of coffee. Coy will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
He is survived by his children, Randy Knott (Cheryl), Debbie Dupuis (Dickie), Brenda Knott, Cynthia "Bozo" K. Taylor (Ricky), and Travis Knott (Allison); grandchildren, Monica Theriot (Shane), Jeremy Knott (Candi), Dana Dupuis, Brandi Hanson (Todd), Megan Hardy, April Leger (Leonard), Sammy Taylor (Tiffany), Donovan Lanclos (Rebecca), Holly Taylor, Logan Hardy (Adrienne), Hogan Hardy (Maria), Gavin Knott, Jace Knott and Ashton Knott; 11 great grandchildren; and his siblings, Alta Huval (Steve "Boy") and Richard Knott.
