Clyde Wesley Bragg Sr.

I was very saddened to learn of Mr. Bragg's passing. My sympathy to all of his family and friends. He lived in the same facility as my mother, Eileen Grant. He was always so pleasant to be around. He was interested in whatever was going on around him. I will miss seeing him when I am visiting my mom. Sincerely, Shelley Grant Damian, Hanover

My deepest condolences to Clyde's family and close friends. I had the pleasure of knowing him at Industrial Alloy Fabricators, where he came as an ASME inspector. He was always so friendly, kind and humble - a true gentleman - and a joy to be around. The world is diminished by his passing, but I imagine he is now happily tending a beautiful and productive garden for our Lord. Thank you Clyde for enriching my life.

I just wanted to express my condolences to Mr. Bragg's family because he was a great friend of my father, Charles W. Bonner, Jr, who spoke of him often with affection. They went to John Marshall HS and were in the cadet corps together. I actually recognize Clyde more from his high school and cadet pictures. I am not sure I ever met him, but love to you all from me and my father, who passed away two years ago. I know they have a lot to catch up on now, and I love picturing them together talking about fishing, children, grandchildren, and being on the water!
