Clarence Wolcott


Clarence “Terry” Wolcott, a lifelong resident of Livingston Manor, passed peacefully in the presence of his wife Terry (Sedlacek) Wolcott at Garnet Health in Middletown, on Saturday, April 6, 2024.

Terry, as most knew him, was born July 28, 1949 on Jacktown Hill to Pearl Wolcott. He attended Livingston Manor Central School where he met Terry Sedlacek, his high school sweetheart, and eventual wife and mother to his two children, Brian Wolcott and Cory Wolcott Dame.

Terry was a stellar athlete, tearing it up on the gridiron, in track and field - throwing discus and shot put, on the basketball courts, and on the baseball field (in some seasons simultaneously). He was always proud of his athletic abilities, especially in football, and often told stories of his games including mentioning the names of other rivals that he would face (if he hurt you on the football field, we assure you he felt bad about it, eventually!). After graduating, Terry enlisted in the Air Force where he worked on jet engines. But all work and no play made Terry a grumpy boy! He picked up a golf club and never looked back! He and his golf partners won numerous tournaments, including two SC-Democrat golf tournaments over the years.

Terry is survived by his wife of 52 years, Terry (Sedlacek), their children Cory and her son Lucas Dame; son, Brian and his wife Stacie (Young) Wolcott and their two boys, Jonathan and Joseph; as well as his younger sister Robin Soules (husband, Bruce Soules) and many nieces and nephews, both by blood and by heart.

Terry enjoyed the company of friends, on the golf course and off. Including those he made along his UPS routes in Delaware County. His grandkids were the highlight of his days, and he delighted in watching them compete in hockey, football and band. He and Mrs. T had fun visiting with friends near and far, taking cruises, and hosting friends for cards.

A celebration of Terry’s life will commence Friday, April 12th at Colonial Bryant Funeral Home, 29 Pearl Street, Livingston Manor. Visiting Hours will be from 2-4 p.m. and again from 7-9 p.m. at the funeral home. Friends and family are invited to a reception in between at the Arnold House from 4:30-6:30.

In lieu of flowers, Terry would have liked you to consider donating to: A Single Bite (, as Foster Supply Hospitality met him and Mrs. T with great generosity in some of the most difficult health events he faced, nurturing not only their bellies, but their hearts; or Livingston Manor Ambulance Corps, P.O. Box 1, Livingston Manor, NY 12758 whose attention, service with utmost dignity, and immediate response, and incredible care helped Mr. T extend his time with his family for several years.
