OBITUARY

Clyde Roland Inskeep

October 6, 1926January 1, 2015

Clyde Roland Inskeep, 88, of Rapidan, VA passed away at Dogwood Village Senior Living, Orange, VA on January 1, 2015. Born in Culpeper County, VA October 6, 1926 to Bernard Inskeep and Beulah Yowell Inskeep, his most cherished pleasure in life was spending time with his large and extended family at the beloved family farm. Clyde was a quiet supporter of many social and economic interests in his community and was an active member of the Culpeper Lion's Club and the Mitchells Ruritan Club. He was a member of Cedar Run Baptist Church, where he sang in the choir. A lifelong farmer, businessman and sportsman, he was instrumental in bringing the Bull Run Hunt to Culpeper County in the1980’s. It gave him great joy to hear the cry of the hounds as he spent time with dear friends he made along the way. He would follow the hunt in his ‘command’ vehicle, many times having more success at finding foxes than the dogs, to the amusement of those riding with him. He will be remembered by his family and friends for his generosity, his willingness to work hard and play hard, his love of fun and his frequent laughter, which spread to all who were in his presence. Surviving Mr. Inskeep are his children, Janice Inskeep Willis and her husband Werter of Charleston, SC, Clyde Roland Inskeep, Jr. and his wife Paige of Rapidan, VA and Kelley Inskeep Johnson and her husband Eric of Keswick, VA; his grandchildren, Werter Larkin Willis and his wife Martinique, Zachary Inskeep Willis and his wife Jessica, Hunter Addison Willis and his wife Mierka, Jason Andrew Inskeep and his wife Lauren, Julie Inskeep Steele and her husband Kemper, Christopher Bryce Johnson and Tyler Scott Johnson.; and his great-grandchildren, Sophia Willis, Madison and Audrey Inskeep, Cameron and Caroline Steele. He is also survived by his brother, Russell J. Inskeep and his wife Hope. He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife Louise Hitt Inskeep and his siblings, B. Carlin Inskeep, James L. Inskeep, Helen I. Richardson, Beulah I. Lewis and Jessie I. Christensen. Graveside funeral services will be held in Fairview Cemetery, Culpeper, VA, Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Lanny Horton conducting the service. The family will receive friends Friday, January 16, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00p.m. at Clore-English Funeral Home. The family would also like to recognize and give thanks for the warm, compassionate, and loving care that he received during his stay at Dogwood Village Senior Living. All were touched by Mr. Inskeep’s grace and good humor and the family remains grateful for the love that was shown by the staff during his time there. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions should be made to Dogwood Village Foundation, 120 Dogwood Lane, Orange, VA 22960 or to The Bull Run Hunt, P.O. Box 14, Mitchells, Virginia 22729.

I was very sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Inskeep. My family began visiting Culpeper VA 40 years ago and were blessed to meet Mr. Inskeep and his family. Over the next 40 years they open their home and frienship to my entire family. Mr. Inskeep was the embodiment of a true Southern Gentleman. The Alcaro Family sends its prayers and love to Mr. Inskeep's family especially Kelly. God bless you.

May God bless and keep you may He make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May God grant you his eternal peace.

Wayne and I so enjoyed our times with Clyde at the BRH. His love of family, fox hunting and farming was evident in almost every conversation. We will miss his smile and great laugh. Our sincere condolences to all his family.

I had often thought since I stopped fox-hunting many years ago that I'd stop over at the BRH kennels one fine Saturdayand go "car topping" with Clyde. But I never did. That is an opprtunity that I will alwayys regret not taking. Clyde was one of those good, decent men who was always a pleasure to be around. I think of him often and will continue to do do I'm sure.

Clyde was such a part of the Bull Run Hunt family. I can still hear Joe Kincheloe on the radio keeping Clyde posted on our position and making sure he knew when we had a "Tally Ho". Clyde knew the foxes better that we did, most of the time, and certainly provided his guests with a great deal of sport. My sincerely condolences go out to Clydes family.

I am so sorry to hear off Clyde's passing. I knew that when he road whipped with Bull Run Hunt, that I always had a ride with him. I learned so much riding with him. The hunt field will not be he same without him. He was a wonderful man and a wonderful person to know. He is now hunting in heaven, God bless him. My prayers are with his family.
