Dr. Clarence F. "Clancy" Gansberg, DMV, died of malignant mesothelioma at home in Yuma AZ on December 5th, 2011. He was 88 years old.

Dr. Gansberg was born January 24, 1923 in Webster, S. Dakota, and grew up in Stanwood, Wash. He worked as a sheet metal fitter in the shipyards before joining the Army Air Corps during WWII. As a pilot in the war, he flew the Boeing B29 Superfortress bomber, the largest airplane of its time. He survived 30 missions over Japan and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal with four Oak Leaf clusters, two rows of Asiatic-Pacific ribbons, and the Presidential Unit Citation. He was a First Lieutenant and was in line for a commission to Captain at Bomber Command Flight Control when the A-Bomb was dropped and the war ended.

After the war, he studied to become a Dr. of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University. He then moved to Klamath Falls, OR, where he lived and practiced veterinary medicine for 30 years. He married Marjorie A. Petty, had three boys, James, Ronald, and Jeffrey, and was an avid hunter and fisher. He was an active member of the Elks, VFW, and Masonic Shriners.

After retiring in 1981, he traveled in the summer and wintered in Yuma, AZ. After learning of a WWII B17 bomber that crashed into the Gila Mountains during training, he climbed to the crash site many times and spearheaded an effort to construct a monument to the crew. In Yuma, he met his second wife, A. Lorene "Loree" Wirt, and continued associations with the Elks, Shriners, Moose, American Legion, and VFW. Annually, he volunteered with the Arizona Game & Fish as veterinarian during captures of desert big horn sheep and Sonoran pronghorn. In his spare time, he enjoyed dancing and forming many lasting friendships.

Dr. Gansberg is survived by his wife, Loree Wirt, two sisters, Lorraine Watson and Rosalie Whitney, his three sons, and seven grandchildren.
