Clarence Warner

December 31, 1969 — August 31, 2020

Dr. Clarence Emmanuel Warner, Jr., was the second child, first son and one of five children born to Clarence and Uris Warner (deceased) of Rocky Vale, Scarborough, Tobago. He was born on October 26th, 1954, at the Scarborough General Hospital in Tobago, West Indies. He was 65 years old at the time of his passing, and lived with his family in Los Angeles, CA.

Clarence (“J” or “Junior” as he was fondly called by family and friends) was curious from birth. Just check out the photo of him in the arms of his mother when he was a baby.

He attended Scarborough R.C. Primary School in Tobago and Tranquility Boys Primary School in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, where he passed the Common Entrance Exams to attend St. Mary’s College, one of the most prestigious boys high schools in Trinidad and Tobago. While attending St. Mary’s, he excelled in his studies to the extent that after completing Form 2, he bypassed Form 3, and was placed in Form 4 where he did his O’ Levels after only four years in high school. He received several distinctions in the subjects he had passed.

Following his high school years, Clarence returned to Tobago and worked at ScotiaBank. Eager to pursue his dream to become a physician, he left Tobago in 1978 and entered Howard University in Washington, DC, where he was accepted into the university’s College of Medicine’s accelerated program that allowed him to achieve his medical degree and Bachelor of Science degree in Physics simultaneously in six years in 1984. With regard to his family, Clarence met his wife Jennifer Walwyn, a native of St. Kitts, when they were both students at Howard University. They were married in 1980 and shortly thereafter had their first child, Jason. Following his graduation, he did his one-year internship at the District of Columbia General Hospital in Washington, DC, then relocated to Los Angeles, CA with his family in 1985 to begin his four year residency in Family Medicine at the King-Drew Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA which he completed in 1989. Their other two children, Allan and Jessica, were born in California in 1989 and 1996, respectively.

In 1998, he established his private family practice as a general practitioner, providing medical services to underserved patients and communities in LA. He was beloved by his patients and staff.

As he immersed himself in his profession, Clarence maintained strong connections with many of his fellow Tobagonians in the U.S. and Tobago. As his family and friends would attest to, he frequently (perhaps incessantly 🤤) and passionately engaged them in conversations on the potential of Tobago and Tobagonians to handle their own affairs. In his desire to keep engaged with and connected to his beloved Tobago, he organized missions from Los Angeles to Tobago that consisted of medical personnel and students needing to fulfill their community-service requirements to enter college. These teams conducted free clinics for Tobagonians in need of medical care.

Clarence also pursued an MBA/HCM in Public Health from the University of Phoenix and successfully completed his degree in 2009. He was a member of various associations such as the National Association of Doctors, American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine, the American Academy of Anti-Aging Association, and the American Academy of Emergency Medicine.

In his latter years, Clarence worked as the medical director of several hospices where he also provided medical services to hospice patients. He was widely known as a very empathetic and understanding provider. His patients will miss his honest and compassionate care. Clarence will be greatly missed by his wife, Jennifer, his three children Jason, Allan, and Jessica, his siblings, relatives, friends, and colleagues.
