Clair was born on January 17, 1957 to the late Warren and Marian (Smoker) Dise in Lancaster, Pennsylvania..

Clair was passionate about his faith, family and model trains. Clair enjoyed a sincere relationship with God and prayed often for his family and friends. Clair had a unique sense of humor and it would often come out while he would play games with his family. He loved to trick his family and play friendly pranks to get a laugh, such as loudly singing “melodious” wake up songs while on family trips. Clair enjoyed creating train landscapes that would often bring smiles to faces with layouts displayed at libraries, stores and retirement campuses.

Clair is survived by his wife Elaine of 44 years, his children: Michael Dise husband of Lisa Dise, and Tina White wife of Richard White, his four grandchildren: Oliver, Alexandra, Soren and Ronan; sisters Dee Brubaker and Linda Beyer wife of Eugene Beyer, and by many nephews and nieces and great nephews and nieces.
