A Memorial Service to celebrate the life of Bill Clay will be held at Harvest Church of God, 520 Golden Springs Rd, Anniston, AL, 36207, on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 6:00pm, with Lead Pastor Jerry Irwin officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Mr. Clay, age 78, was born April 10, 1939, graduated from Jacksonville High School, married his sweetheart, and raised a family in Calhoun County. Survivors include his wife, Faye Newsome Clay, sons Warren Clay (Jean) and Scott Clay (Allison), grandchildren Will Clay (Brittany), Matt Clay (Anna), Brennan Clay (Chastin), Caroline Lambert (Cal), and Hayden Clay, and great-grandchild Liam Clay (Will & Brittany); along with siblings Emma Clark, Sonny Clay, Louise Canada, and Denny Clay. He is preceded in death by his parents, Colvin Clay and Willie Mae Clay of Weaver, his wife of 54 years Odette Collins Clay, and his brother Mickey Clay. Mr. Clay peacefully passed away on October 13, 2017 at RMC in Anniston, surrounded by his loving family. He was a life-long resident of Anniston and Calhoun County, and is best known for owning Bill's Drive-In Restaurant many years ago. After Bill's Drive-In, Mr. Clay co-founded AlaCote, Corporation in Anniston. Mr. Clay enjoyed fishing and golf and Auburn Football, but the main joy in his life was his grandchildren. To continue Mr. Clay's giving nature, he decided to participate in The Anatomical Donor Program with the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His body will be studied by many college medical students, preparing them for what they might encounter in their field of study. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make donations to The Anatomical Donor Program at UAB, New Beacon Hospice, the , or the Calhoun Baptist Association Service Center.
