A Tragic Loss

Clinton Detweiler, one of Gods finest creations, has left this world to move on to his just rewards. His kindness, helpfulness and honesty will be missed by all who have ever had the pleasure of knowing him. He was a man of God and family and treated everyone he came in contact with, with the utmost respect. He was there for new vents to help guide them and make their journey in to ventriloquism an enjoyable one. That is visible through all of us who grieve for him and his family.
I consider myself honored and “blessed” to have known him. He helped me in alot of aspects through the years in both skills, humility and professionalism. He was more than just the owner of Maher studios he was a teacher, a friend and mentor to many.
We all looked forward to seeing what would be posted in his blog and what new creations he had come up with. He would answer any and all questions given him and if he didn’t have the answer, he would point you in the right direction. Clinton was happy when he was in his shop or doing anything that had to do with Ventriloquism. As the saying goes and as he said himself, “when you are doing something you love to do, you will never have worked a day in your life. In one of his final posts his wife Adelia asked him ” Isn’t there something you would like to do other than ventriloquism?” His answer: I’d have to think about that one. We will miss you Mr Detweiler. I hope I can be half the man that you were. Hopefully then, I will be able to meet you in person in Gods great Heaven.

Not sure if you remember me. Jay Castillo , ACM Human Resources.
Glad to see you are still making the little people. I look for them on Ebay and hope to purchase one soon. I asked to be a volunteer for a marionette production in nearby Fort Worth Texas. It's a different type of performance but I hope to learn the production side.

Best wishes to you and your family.

I Love this post about Clinton Detweiler and I truly feel the same way about him and about you Steve Barry.. When I first started I followed Clinton Detweiler and YOU.
I looked forward to seeing your new projects and to reading all the real knowledge and information you both so freely shared.
Really hope to meet you in person one day to say THANK YOU

A tragic loss for us indeed. Clinton was only "on loan" to us. Evidentally, God called him to do what he loves best in a new workshop made just for him in heaven.
