Clay is survived by his wife, Norma, of 44 wonderful years; a loving son, Kevin; a beautiful daughter-in-law, Megan; and eight precious grandchildren, Cadence, Justus, Asher, Israel, Silas, Keilah, Patience and Nevaeh - they were truly the apple of his eye and he boasted of them every chance he got! He is also survived by his sister, Cheri Taylor (Dennis); and two nieces, Salene and Charlene of Texas. Clay lived a full life and there is sadness for our loss but rejoicing for his gain!

Clay and I were in the same Sunday School class at Laburnum Presbyterian Church in Henrico County back in the early-mid 50s. He was a sweet, upbeat boy with a very positive attitude. Throughout my life I've wondered how he and Cheri were doing. It appears to me that his life was a life well lived with a strong faith...a blessing to his family. I offer my prayers of solace.

I´m so sorry for your loss but excited that Clay is meeting the Lord! I knew Clay from Calvary Methodist Church in the 80´s and 90´s. He walked the walk with a mission and was an example of a Man of God. God bless your family.
