Roy Clay Blevins, 90, widower of Zella Mae Green Blevins, died after a prolonged illness Monday, September, 6, 2010. He was born December 4, 1919 in Bath County, Kentucky to the late Clifford and Priscilla Blevins.
He was a faithful member of the Queen Street and Rolling Hills Church of Christ, a farmer and raised hay, tobacco, corn, cattle and hogs. His knowledge was respected by friends and neighbors as he surveyed their crops, helped them with harvests and “doctored” their animals. When he retired from farming, he took a job with Gateway Stockyards. His gentle way made him a beloved and trusted member of the community.
He is survived by a son, Ronald (Elsie) Blevins of Burlington, North Carolina, a daughter, Juanita (Don) Graves of Lancaster, 8 grandchildren, 22 great-grand-children, 24 great-great-grandchildren, 3 siblings, Glenna (Bill) McNabb, Leonard (Jean) Blevins and David Blevins, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
His funeral will be 1:00 Friday at Herald & Stewart Home for Funerals with burial in Machpelah Cemetery. Visitation is 5-8:00 Thursday.
True to his word, honest, loyal, and a friend, everything there is in a good man, Clay was.Sign/View Guestbook
