Dear family & friends of Clyde Johnson:
Everyone who knew Clyde knew that he LOVED MUSIC! - especially Gospel music!
I grew up with Clyde and his family. I played piano at Ft. Loudon United Methodist Church- where Clyde always sang in the choir and never missed a rehearsal! Occasionally Clyde & I would sing a duet. The song I remember best was entitled “UNWORTHY.”
I pray the words of this song will be a blessing and a fitting tribute to our dear friend, Clyde Johnson, and I pray God will be honored and exalted.

Unworthy am I of the grace that He gave,
Unworthy to hold to His hand;
Amazed that a King would reach down to a slave,
This love I cannot understand.

My sorrow and sickness laid stripes on His back,
My sins caused the blood that was shed;
My faults and my failures have woven a crown
Of thorns, that He word on His head.

Unworthy am I of the glory to come,
Unworthy with angels to sing;
I thrill just to know that He loved me so much,
A pauper, I walk with the King.

Unworthy, unworthy, a beggar,
In bondage and alone;
But He made me worthy and now by His grace
His mercy has made me His own.

Nancy Fritz

Tonight as I was walking, birds flew by. The song "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" came into my mind, and I began singing the chorus as I walked. Later I was reminded, by Clyde's grand niece that his private service was today and he had wanted that song to be sang. Clyde, you were a gentle, kind soul, that watched me grow up. From being little in church, working along with my dad on the church's finances to engaging in conversation when I'd see you at Milky Way(always that front table) on my trips home to visit from college, and later married life, you always has a smile and a cheerful way. You will be greatly missed by your family and your town. The example of community service you showed, lived by, had a huge impact on the priorities I set for my own life as a teacher, mother and wife.
