I am so very sorry for your loss. May the wonderful memories you have of Lucas bring you comfort during this difficult time and may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm.”—2 Thess. 2:16, 17.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.

Lucas Daniel Clay, Jr. (Luke), 89, our dear father, grandfather, and great grandfather died, March 24, 2018 in Savannah, Georgia.  Luke was born January 22, 1929, in Danville, Virginia, the son of Lillie and Lucas Daniel Clay, Sr.  After graduating from high school in Danville in 1948, Luke spent two years working for the FBI in Washington DC where he met Betty Blakeslee, from Hastings, Nebraska.  Luke and Betty were married in 1951 in Danville.  Luke served in the U.S. Army from 1951-1953. He then attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute and graduated at the top of his class in the College of Business in 1957. After graduation, Luke went to work for Kaiser Aluminum in Newark, Ohio for 14 years.  He and his family moved to Savannah, Georgia in 1970 where he continued to work for Kaiser Chemical/Vigoro Industries and advanced to Vice President of Financial Planning.  He retired from Vigoro in 1993. Luke was an avid golfer and woodworker, and an active member of Wilmington Island Presbyterian Church.  He loved spending time with his family and directing “Camp Poppy” for his grandchildren. We will greatly miss his sense of honor, dignity, love for family and lifelong friends, and his humor and wise counsel.

Luke was preceded in death by his wife Betty in 2016. He is survived by his  three children, Debbie Harris (Mike),of Bishop, Georgia, Dave Clay (Rhoda Voth), and Janet Thompson (Terry) of Savannah; 8 grandchildren: Katie Steigerwalt (Greg), Mark Harris (Kayla), Caroline Harris, Summer Howard (Jason), Sunny Chadwell (Dane),  Davy Clay (Lauren), Jeremy Thompson (Kelly), and Andy Thompson(Jane); and nine great-grandchildren: Theodore Harris, Couper and Cameron Howard, Chad, Grady, and Easton Chadwell, Ellie Blake and Olivia Clay, and Luke, Logan, and Claire Thompson.

The family wishes to thank the caring relatives, friends, neighbors, and fellow church members for their many concerns and kindnesses.  A Memorial Service for Luke will be held on April 7, 2018 at 2:00 pm at Wilmington Island Presbyterian Church, Savannah.  Memorial contributions may be made to the church.
