    Another friend has slipped the anchor and crossed over the bar. You will be missed, ole friend. Our prayers go out to the family, especially Bobby, the only one left. We had some good times though, back when.

    Clint was a dear friend to me as well as my parents, Willard and Gracie White. He always greeted you with a warm smile and handshake and did his best to make the world a better place. He made a real difference in so many lives and will be greatly missed.

    To Uncle Clint’s family members, especially his brother Bobby and family. We send our condolences and our prayers of comfort and peace. We join with you in remembrance of the life Uncle Clint lived and his gentle kindness he shared with all in our family. Uncle Clint was a man of honor and integrity. He was truly one of the kindness men God placed on this earth. He was a man of great faith and we know that he is now in Heaven with all of our family members that preceded him. Clint was a loving and supportive husband to our Aunt Alyada Davis King and a great friend and Brother-in-law to our Mother, Marion Davis Breska. He was an honorable and loving step-father to our cousins: Donna White, Cliff White, and Charles White. Our lives were blessed to know him and share laughter with him. He will be missed.

    Dear Family of Uncle Clint,
    Uncle Clint was married to my Auntie Alyda Davis King, the sister of my late Mother, Marian Davis Breska. Although Uncle Clint was not my blood uncle he was the Uncle of my Heart. The only Uncle I knew on my Mother’s side. I will miss his smile and happy personality. He was kind and so loving to my Auntie Alyda and that made him so special to me. I will keep Uncle Clint in my heart and know he is with Auntie Alyda in the final place of peace. May time and wonderful memories of Clint bring a smile to all of his family and friends. With Love and deepest sympathy, Faith DeArmond Elwess

    Mr. Clint was a very sweet man. I always enjoyed chatting with him around town and getting a hug from him. Heaven has been blessed with another angel. My thoughts and prayers are with your family in this time of sorrow. May God continue to be with you all.

    I saw Mr King most often in passing, as my family has lived just beyond his residence for about 15 years. Up until several years ago and declining health, I dont think he ever let a pine cone stay on his yard for more than a minute! I stopped and talked to him at his mailbox the other day after not seeing him for sometime. He said he had been in the hospital and I could tell he was battling poor health. May he rest in peace. Im sorry for your loss.
