Throughout his life he worked in the oilfield, Custom farm service, Klamert Railroad Salvage, and Shennum Construction. He found his passion when he began working for his Uncle Bruce Kenny at Kenny Fertilizer, later becoming AgPartners. Bruce taught Clint everything he knew and then retired. Clint moved up as manager/agronomist and here we are 27 years later. Spring time was the busiest and his favorite time of year. He loved all his coworkers and cared dearly for his all farmers.
On May 20th, 1995 Clint married Lissa Beery and to this union they had two daughters Megan and Ellie. Clint loved hunting, fishing, NASCAR, and the Miami Dolphins but he loved nothing more than being a dad. He was Megan and Ellie's biggest cheerleader in whatever they chose to do.

His artistic talent can be seen in several homes throughout many states as he did numerous deer, antelope, elk, and even a longhorn steer.
