William Clyde Bost, age 91, of Statesville, passed away Tuesday February 26, 2013 at Iredell Memorial Hospital. He was the son of the late James Oscar and Bertha Idella Bost. Over the years, Clyde worked and held many jobs; however, when asked if he had a favorite, he quickly told of his job building ships for the Norfolk Naval Shipyard during World War II, and his pride in working on the U.S.S. Eisenhower. Clyde was baptized in the Church of God on September 24, 1958 and never waivered from his strong spiritual beliefs.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 70 years, Effie Frances Fincannon Bost; eight siblings, James Furches Bost, Mable Albertine Bost, Francis Ernest Bost, Henry Glenwood Bost, Sydney Harold Bost, Keith Kenyan Bost, Margaret Bost McGhee and Jack Curtis Bost.

Frances Plunkett, Helen Rainelle, and Janet B. Byers and husband Jeff; siblings, Denell Bost Wike and David Ray Bost; thirteen grandchildren; and twelve great grandchildren.

A graveside services will be conducted 12:00pm Saturday, March 2, 2013 at the Stony Point Cemetery. Minister Freddie Carroll will officiate. The family will receive friends from 6:00-7:30pm Friday evening at Chapman Funeral Home.

Dear Family, I am so sorry for the grief you all are going through. I have wonderful memories of Clyde and Effie visiting with Mom and Dad. Not only were they relatives but they were truly friends who loved each other. You are all in my thoughts and prayers now and during the difficult days ahead. Love, Gwen

I'm so sorry I couldn't be there. Uncle Clyde will be sorely missed. I will always remember visiting with your family, when we were younger, in Newport News. I'll will rememberone of my last visits with and Aunt Effie up in Statesville. And I will cherish the memories of when they stopped in to visit my family here in South Dakota (I got pictures). I miss them both so much. there are so many great memories.
