Not sure what to say?

Brother Dailey held meetings at the Fairfield Church of Christ when I was in grammar and high school. He was an interesting preacher, and he was really popular with us kids. He always noticed us, and would talk to us. The members of the Church liked him and were always happy when he would hold a meeting. His wife, Mary, was a cousin of my Cousin Mary Wright, who was a member of the Fairfield Church of Christ. He had a Nash four-door car, and one night I was riding with Mary and Him, and he...

Clarence was the minister at the Union Avenue Church of Christ while I was a student at UT Health Sciences Center in the late 70's. Clarence enabled me, for the first time in my life, to see God as a Heavenly Father who had great love and compassion for his earthly children. I am forever grateful for your dad's commitment to tell of, & show, God's love to the world.... as understanding that I did not have to be "perfect" to be a Christian changed my life.


Brother Dailey baptised me in the creek during a gospel meeting at the Fairfield Church of Christ when I was about 11 or 12 years old. I am now 80 years old. He held many, many meetings at Fairfield.

Clarence was the preacher at the Union Avenue church or Christ all my years growing up so there are more memories than I could recount. I recently found a cassette tape of the celebration of his 20th year at Union Avenue. I would be happy to pass it on. He was dearly loved by my parents, Lloyd and Jean Britt. He was also the one who baptized me into Christ. I know he will be greatly missed and I am praying for all the family.

My mother, Christine Johnson (now deceased) heard his first sermon in Clarksville in 1940. He was loved by so many, a gentle spirit, a dedicated worker for our Lord.

May God's riches blessings be upon all of his family.
