Obituary

Clyde Clemons, age 88, of Kingston went home to be with his Savior early Tuesday morning, November 2, 2021 with his family by his side.  He was born June 22, 1933 in Silver Point, Tennessee.  Clyde retired after 20 years as a chemical operator at the K-25 Nuclear Plant in Oak Ridge.  He enjoyed attending Potter’s House Fellowship while his health permitted.  Clyde enjoyed woodworking and personally remodeled every house he ever lived in.  He enjoyed being outdoors, feeding and watching the birds that frequented his yard.  He also enjoyed  raising vegetable gardens with the help of his grandson, Lucas.  In later years he loved cooking, trying new recipes, and “teaching” his nurses how to cook “his” way.   Preceded in death by his loving wife of 61 years, Nancy Mae “Shirley” Clemons; parents, Marvin & Martha Clemons; brothers, Glenn, Wynn, and Morris Clemons.
