I truly enjoyed the music of Roy Clark. Yesterday When I was Young was a beautiful song. May the God of all comfort strengthen the family during this time of deep sorrow. Those who pass on, God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes. My sincerest condolences. Psalms 116:15.

I've watched Hee Haw for many years & I still do. I remember all the classic country singers & songs. I enjoy classic country singers & songSs I am 46 & remember the words to all the songs. I have a good memory.

Though we never met in person. Ive been a long time fan. I was heartbroken when I found out the news of your passing. At an early age in my childhood, you made an impact on me as a musician in 1976. I would watch Hee Haw tv show each week to try and pick up how to play the guitar. My mother wrote to Roy and asked for an autograph for my 8 birthday. She received an autograph picture of Roy on stage in a rhinestone outfit with him wearing a cap. It had a hand written message on the photo,...

I remember Roy when I was young. He would perform at Longwood University located in the small town of Farmville, Virginia. the concert was to benefit our local community hospital, Southside Community Hospital was located near Meherrin, Virginia where Roy grew up. and our ER was named in his honor. He was always friendly, greeting us in town, hospital or where ever. He made us proud to call him our friend.


To the family of Roy Clark, we are so sorry to hear about the loss of your love one. He has been in the entertainment business for a long time. May you gain comfort and strength from the God of all Comfort during this difficult time.
