AIKEN, SC-- Clyde David Willing, 83, peacefully entered into rest Thursday, October 4, 2018. Born on November 18, 1934, in Aiken, SC. Clyde was a son of the late Geddings and Ione Willing, and was one of 9 children. He was preceded in death by his high school sweetheart and beloved wife of 62 years, Nancy G. Willing.

Clyde was a faithful member of Memorial Baptist Church where he served in many capacities—honoring God and others. Clyde served in the Army National Guard and retired from Overnight Transportation with over 39 years of service. Clyde’s greatest pride was his family.
