It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of CG&S founder Clarence Guerrero, age 93. Surrounded by family and his wife Stella, Clarence died peacefully at home on August 19th.

While this is a sad time for us, Clarence leaves behind a legacy, creating a business that has become part of the fabric of Austin. Starting the firm in 1957 with only a 6th grade education, Clarence defied the odds, building a business in the face of hardship that survives to this day.
