“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” (Psalm 116:15)

Late on Monday night, Sept. 16, 2013, the Lord saw fit to call His son, Reginald Lloyd Clemon, home to be with him. Reginald, affectionately known by his family as “Brother,” was born on March 19, 1953, in Robinsonville, N.C. Even from the crib, he always seemed to express love and joy to his parents, Modistene and the late Louie Clemon. He will always be remembered for the huge smile that was ever present on his face.



From birth, Brother attended Metropolitan Baptist Church, giving his life and service to Christ at an early age. He served in the choir, usher board, youth council, Baptist Training Union and wherever he was needed.

Reginald attended Nansemond County Public Schools (now Suffolk), attending Forest Glen High School (where he was on the football, track and debate teams) and graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in 1971. After high school, Brother attended Virginia Commonwealth University.

Brother was an avid fan and performer of arts and music; he played piano and acted.

Reginald married Claudia Banbury 29 years ago. To this union, two sons were welcomed, Trevor and Mitchell.

He was preceded in death by his sisters, Lillie and Constantine.

Left to share the memories of Reginald’s smile are his wife, Claudia; two sons, Trevor and Mitchell; mother, Modistene; two sisters, Alleathia Duck and Towanna Turner (Alvin); special sister, Rebecca Jackson; a niece, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.

A memorial service in memory of Mr. Clemon will take place at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, at Metropolitan Baptist Church. The family will receive visitors at the residence of Ms. Modistene Clemon.
