Clyde Dew, age 92 of Norris

Clyde Dew, age 92 of Norris, died following a year of declining health on Monday, September 10, 2018.  Clyde was a mechanic and small business owner and operated independent gas stations for over 40 plus years, retiring after selling Norris Service Center.  He had a knack for repairing anything with an engine, and always treated his customers fairly.

He was a World War II veteran of the United States Army, who often said service to your country was something to be proud of, but nothing that should be bragged about. He served with distinction earning multiple bronze stars, and was selected, as a member of the 9th Infantry Division to serve in the Honor Guard at the funeral of his commanding officer, General George S. Patton, Jr.  Clyde was also a 32nd degree mason.

He was handsome, fearless, and devoted to his family and will be forever missed.
