Survived by Clay include his daughter, Tamara Shelton Lacy, his granddaughter, Hali Lacy Hagerich with husband Tony, his grandson, Robert Clay Lacy with wife Rachel, and his adorable great granddaughter, Charlee Olivia Hagerich. In addition to family, Clay is survived by his much loved pup, Dudley, as well as a world of friends and acquaintances whose lives he touched with his gentle, caring, and always interested way. Memorial services will be held Friday, March 23 at 11:30 a.m. at Bristow-Faulkner Funeral Home in Saluda, Virginia. Interment will be at Harmony Grove Baptist Church with reception to follow at the home of sister-in-law and friend, Emily Chowning in Urbanna, Virginia.
