Darryl Clyde Clanton

January 31, 1941 ~ July 29, 2023 (age 82) 82 Years Old


     Darryl Clyde Clanton, 82, of Valley, entered into God’s kingdom on July 29, 2023. He was born on January 31, 1941, to Clyde and Faye Clanton. Darryl was a charter member of Friendship Christian Church in Riverview, Alabama.

     Darryl, the most loving and devoted brother and uncle, is survived by his siblings, Barry Clanton (Diann); Marie Bailey (Tim); Diane Osborne (Sammy); Denise Bledsoe (Jack); his nieces and nephews, Shane Clanton (Lynn); Stacey Shaver (Gary); Chad Bailey (Gina); Stephen Bledsoe (Paige); David Clanton (Erica); Jason Osborne (Laurie); Jessica Hudson (David); Meagan Odom; Shawn Odom, and a host of great-nieces and nephews. 

     Upon graduation from Valley High School in 1959, Darryl joined the Air Force to serve his country. After leaving the military, he went to work for West Point Pepperell. Darryl eventually began his own painting and contracting business and put his handyman skills to use. There are many homes, churches, schools, and businesses in the Valley area that were painted by Darryl and his company. 

     Darryl was truly a great man whose impact will be forever felt by his family and friends. He was a selfless man full of compassion and generosity, and he brought a smile to all who knew him.
