Clyde Eugene Wharton

Obituary of Clyde Eugene Wharton

Clyde Eugene Wharton age 94 of Clinton, TN passed away on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at his home in Clinton. Clyde enjoyed making people laugh with his good clean jokes. He had the gift of laughter. Clyde was an elder of his church, Clinton Church of God. He was very active in church ministries and activities such as Children's Church and Boys' Club. He worked as a custodian for the church and was an artist. Clyde was preceded in death by his son, Clyde "Billie" Wharton Jr. and daughter, Ruthann Wharton.

Clyde is survived by his wife Fay Wharton of Clinton, TN; daughter, Linda Dawson of Vermont; grandchildren, Kevin Wharton & wife Cindy of Knoxville, TN and Carolyn Wharton of Washington; numerous great grandchildren as well as many other relatives and friends. Clyde's family will have a Celebration of Life service on Sunday, August 26, 2018 at 6:00pm at the Clinton Church of God with Rev. Curtis Akers officiating. Clyde's interment will be private.

He was also predeceased by his FIRST WIFE (mother of his children, who he was with for most of his life), Vivian V. Wharton, his daughters-in-law Lydia Burns Wharton & Luanne Morse Wharton, as well as his great-grandson Garrett W. Waterman. He was survived by 4 other granddaughters - Kimberly W.A. Jefferies of Massachusetts, Kate Dawson Webster, Mirinda Wharton Waterman, & Justine W.J. Black, all of Vermont. Clyde made his home in Connecticut & Vermont for the better part of 70 years before moving south. He had a lot more going on in his life then just the small bit that certain people were around for. Even if we weren't all that close any more, he would be appalled to know that there was no mention of any part of his life & family prior to living in Tennessee.
