Craig McCliment, dearly loved by family and friends alike, died suddenly and unexpectedly April 28 at the age of 61. His family is heartbroken, particularly wife Deborah Herko McCliment, daughter Anna Rae McCliment Hodge (Jordan), and granddaughter Avery Grace Hodge. A second grandchild is expected in July. Craig was born August 10, 1959, in Youngstown, Ohio, to Edward L. and Peggy McMurray McCliment and graduated from West Forsyth High School in Clemmons in 1977. In 1980, he launched Southern Accent Interiors, a painting and remodeling business that flourished until his death. Known for his perfectionism and hard work, Craig had repeat customers clamoring for his attention; no one else would do. While he enjoyed water activities of all sorts, music, dancing, golf, gardening, cooking, and entertaining – always with joy in his heart, a smile on his face, and laughter ringing out – it was family that mattered most to Craig, especially his girls. Nothing made him happier than spending time with his precious Anna Rae and Avery and meeting their every food request. Delight was then sitting quietly on the porch with Debbie, Avery bouncing contentedly in his lap. He was a family man extraordinaire. Craig is also survived by brothers James D. McCliment (Jean) and Brian D. McCliment; sister Lynn M. McCliment Broach (Preston); mother-in-law Judy H. Yarbrough; father-in-law Howard M. Herko (Marylou) brothers-in-law Danny J. Herko (Chris), Reg F. Yarbrough (Lisa),Tim J. Yarbrough (Love), Howie Herko (Terri) and Neil Herko (Shannon); and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Scott E. McCliment, and father-in-law Reginald F. Yarbrough. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm Tuesday at Vogler and Sons Clemmons Chapel. The family will recive friends one hour prior to the service. The family appreciates the generous outpouring of food, flowers, calls, messages, and personal visits from friends and family. In lieu of flowers, tributes may be made in honor of Craig McCliment to Trellis, as the organization was a blessing to Craig and Debbie during the recent illness of Craig’s brother.

We always loved when Craig would come to the hotel to do work. He wasn't a vendor, he was a part of our Hampton family. He was so proud of his family and loved them so much. We are going to miss seeing his smiling face around here. My deepest condolences to all of his family and friends. (This is one of my favorite photos - it's from Don's retirement party four years ago)
