Clyde was a man of God, serving as a deacon and church moderator in the Baptist faith for many years. He loved his church family and working in the Lord and attended Point Pleasant Lighthouse Baptist Church.
He was lifelong farmer, loved the lord and never forgot to tell his wife and children, I Love You each and every day. He cherished his wife and his grandchildren were his pride and joy. In can be said that, "Grandpa has ears that truly listen, arms that always hold, love that's never ending and a heart that's made of gold." He was a generous man to anyone in need and would have given his shirt off his back if he thought you needed it. He gave everyone the same respect as the next and will be missed by all his neighbors and friends alike.
Clyde united in marriage to Dwalla Rash February 8, 1964.
Besides his wife of 56 years, Dwalla Akridge of Campbellsville, he is survived by one daughter and one son: Cynthia Akin and husband, Todd, and Lee Akridge and wife, Suzette of Campbellsville; three grandchildren: Samantha Akridge and Nick Pendleton and wife, Bailee of Campbellsville, and Brittany Wells and husband, Logan of Louisville; one step-grandchild, Carlotta Dunlap and husband, Chuck of Greensburg; one great-granddaughter, Leighton Wells of Louisville; two sisters and one brother: Lottie Newcomb and Leslie Akridge of Campbellsville, and Mary Powers of Lexington; sister-in-law, Linda Akridge of Cloverport; several nieces and nephews, and many other relatives and friends.
Clyde was also preceded in death by a brother, Damon Akridge.
