Mr. Clancy passed away Saturday, Sept 3, 2011 at the River Park Hospital in McMinnville. He was born on Sept 1, 1931 in the Shady Grove Community of Coffee County, the oldest son of the late Walter Stroud and Annie McMahan Clancy. Mr. Clancy served in the US Army and was stationed in multiple locations from Fort Knox, KY to New Mexico and Nevada during his service. He was a lifelong business partner and full time farmer with The Clancy Brothers Farm in the Shady Grove Community, but he also found time to serve his neighbors and civic community in both Coffee and Warren Counties. Mr. Clancy served on the board of both the Warren and Coffee County Farmer’s Co-ops and Farm Bureaus. He was elected to multiple terms as Road Commissioner for the Coffee County Highway Dept. and served as a committee member of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service for the USDA in Coffee County. Most recently, Mr. Clancy was an organizer and active member of the West Warren-Viola Utility District Board. Mr. Clancy, a lifetime Democrat, always maintained an interest in local politics.

Even more than serving the community, W. S. Clancy Jr. enjoyed being out in his community. He could often be found anywhere a group of people gathered to play cards, talk politics, tell a joke or share a good story. A country store at a cross roads, a local diner, gas station or convenience store were all likely places to me W. S. and have a little conversation.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by one brother, Billy Jackson Clancy.

Mr. Clancy is survived by his remaining brother Richard Clancy and wife Judy; three Nieces: Crystal Carol Clancy of Nashville, LeAnn Roschelle Sand and husband Paul of McMinnville, and Ada Roxanne Howlett and husband John Alan of Morrison; one nephew: Joben Stroud Clancy of Morrison; two great nieces Catherine Clancy Sand and Jacqueline Lee Howlett; and one great nephew Matthew Aldan Howlett.
