Clarence Ramsey Clyatt, Jr., 80, husband of Dottie Clyatt of Greenville, passed away Monday, April 17, 2023. Born in Augusta, GA, he was the son of the late Clarence and Martha Murphey Clyatt.
Clarence was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, cousin, uncle, and friend. He easily established personal relationships with whom he met and he valued each greatly. He was a leader to some, a mentor to many, and a friend to all. Clarence loved spending time at the lake with his family and friends. He enjoyed riding motorcycles with his younger brother and volunteering at Meals on Wheels in Greenville. He was an avid fan of The Masters golf tournament and attended over 70 tournaments. One of the highlights of his life was getting to play the Augusta National golf course in 1997.
Clarence received both his undergraduate and master’s degree from the University of South Carolina. Not long after graduating, he embarked on his 30 year career with the Dupont Company. There, his leadership abilities were quickly recognized and each promotion took him and his family to a different part of the country while his job took him around the world. Eventually, Clarence retired from his career while living in Wilmington, Delaware. Early in his retirement, Clarence and Dottie moved to Augusta, Georgia and then settled back in his childhood home of Greenville, SC.
In addition to his wife of 54 years, he is survived by his son, Ramsey Clyatt and his wife, Kristianna; his daughter, Barry Eilers and her husband, Joe; his six grandchildren, Clay, MacKenzie, and Regan Clyatt, and Sophie Lavallee, Grace and Henry Eilers; and his niece, Martha Messick.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Milledge Clyatt.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, May 2nd at 12:00 p.m. at Thomas McAfee Funeral Home, Downtown. A reception will follow at the Poinsett Club from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.
