Clyde Guyton, of Raleigh, NC died on Friday, December 7, 2018 surrounded by his family. He was 88 years old.

Clyde, a devoted husband and loving dad, is survived by his beautiful wife of 69 years, Ernestine Guyton, and their three children: Pamela Wynn of Minneapolis, MN; Bev Guyton of Raleigh, NC; and Fred Guyton of Atlanta, GA. as well as four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Clyde was born on September 1, 1930 in Bladen County, NC to Sollie and Lemmie Guyton. He was one of eleven children.

Clyde enlisted in the U. S. Army at the age of 17 and was on active duty for two years. He was later called into service again during the Korean War. During his second time of service Clyde sustained injuries to his eyes while serving overseas ultimately leading to early honorable discharge. While serving in the military he married Ernestine Brisson. After leaving the service the two settled in Durham, NC where they raised their three children. Clyde worked as a machinist for Liggett and Myers Tobacco Company for almost 25 years until issues with his eyesight from his service years flared up. Clyde was declared legally blind and took medical retirement.

A funeral is scheduled for 2:00 PM on Monday, Dec 10, 2018 at Renaissance Funeral Home, 7615 Six Forks Rd, Raleigh, NC 27615. Visitation will be from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

Clyde was such a precious person! Our family always enjoyed getting together with Ernestine and Clyde. We considered them our adopted parents and dear friends. Clyde loved his ice cream! He will be missed!

I won’t never forget when uncle Clyde would come over and help me, Andrew and dad to split wood and he would say; hit it like you live. I will always remember every time after church he always had lemon drop candy to give me and Andrew. One of the biggest influences of uncle Clyde was his love for Christ. I love you uncle Clyde and I will not forget everything you taught me!!

Mr. Guyton was always a gentleman. He was always polite and well dressed. You could feel the love between Mr. and Mrs. Guyton. Mrs. Guyton always put his needs before anything else. It has been an honor to know them.

I have many great memories of Uncle Clyde when he and Ernestine lived behind my grandparents in Bladenboro. Loved seeing him and talking to him! Uncle Clyde, you will be missed.

Pam, I regret that I never met your dad but so glad to see his picture. It helps put a picture now on the stories you have told me. I am glad that you and your family were able to be with him these last days though I have some idea of how painful it is too. Please know that you and your brother and sister and your Mom are in my thoughts these days, I wish that there were more I could do from this distance. I will be thinking of you all as you celebrate your dad's life tomorrow. Blessings. Hugs from Minnesota.
