Memories Timeline


  1. Kitty and I send our regrets on the death of Mr Clyde Stanley. May God bless the family and his soul rest in peace.

  2. I just happened to see Mr. Clyde's notice when I was looking at my friend Kathy Doherty-Ogea's mother's notice. My mother was Josie Maxwell that taught at Roanoke HS and I also attended until 8th grade. I will never forget the wonderful fried oysters that (as a youngster)I ate TONS of at Don's restaurant, which he so wonderfully prepared. NONE like them anywhere!! Mr. Clyde was a sweet, humble man and I know that his family will miss him greatly. My prayers are with you. Love, Amy
