Clyde McInnis Jr.

Clyde McInnis Jr., formerly of Raeford, died peacefully on May 7, 2019, in Stuart, Florida. He was 80 years old.
He was born on July 7, 1938, in Miami to Clyde McInnis Sr. and Jeanne Lentz. He was commonly referred to as "Butch."  He always lived life strictly on his terms, which at times made for an interesting experience for his friends and family who loved him through thick and thin.  He especially enjoyed traveling, (many RV trips), was the life of the party, always liked a good debate, (sometimes intentionally provoking their start), was never shy in sharing his opinion, and until a few years ago, loved a good game of golf. His family meant the world to him. 
After four years in the United States Air Force, stationed in Alaska, he returned home where he became a manager for Food Fair.  He then opened his own cleaning business, and  operated two produce stands in Miami Beach.  He later managed National Tire in Cutler Ridge, FL.  In 1992 he moved to Brooksville, FL, where he was affiliated with the Dunes Golf and Country Club.  After retirement, he moved to Stuart, FL.
He was preceded in death by two brothers, John Patterson and William (Billy) McInnis.
He is survived by his latest wife Judith Kalezis McInnis; his brother, Bruce McInnis; half-brother, Steve McInnis and their families; two sons, Charles "Mitch" McInnis (wife Mary and children Dane, Derrick Gaydos and Briana Gaydos), and Sean McInnis (wife Arelys and children Melanie, William, Elizabeth); and a daughter, Katherine "Kathy" Harrison, her husband Christian and children, Nicole Frick (husband Brad and daughter Kinsley), Janna Messmann (husband Jeffery), Natalie Armstrong, Leah Harrison, and Lisa Armstrong.
He will be cremated, and a memorial will take place at the 92nd annual McInnis Family Reunion on July 20, 2019, at 1 p.m. at Dundarrach Community Church, Raeford, directed by Crumpler Funeral Home in Raeford. In lieu of flowers, send donations to:
