James Ronald (“Clyde”) Williamson passed away peacefully at Jackson Hospital in Montgomery, AL, on January 6, 2023, after a three-year struggle with ALS – Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. He was born September 17, 1947 and was a 1967 graduate of West Blocton High School. Much of his career was spent with Gray Lumber Company in Green Pond, AL, until his retirement in 2012. Thereafter, he devotedly cared for his mother until her passing in 2018.
Clyde is survived and missed by his sister Janice Finch (Carl), brother Donald Williamson (Jean), sister Wanda Lucas (Zack) of whom he was unapologetically the favorite of each; his loving canine companion “Little Man”; and a host of nieces and nephews. During his illness, he developed a special bond with his niece Jessica, who lovingly assisted with his care. The family is forever grateful to Judy James whose helping hands surrounded Clyde with love in his last months.
