Clarence Edgar Breedlove

Funeral services for Mr. Breedlove will be private, however, friends may visit with the family Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016 from noon until 8 p.m. at Bond Memorial Chapel.

Mr. Breedlove, entered this world June 21, 1928 as the son of the late Lenzy Bell and Sadie May Tant Breedlove. Clarence lived an amazing 88 years and left us Nov. 5, 2016 surrounded by his children in the comfort of Alive Hospice in Nashville.

Clarence retired from NES after 42 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Nashville.

He was preceded in death by his lifelong soul mate, Margaret Hutton Breedlove. They were married for 56 years.

Clarence placed his carbon footprint by adding many productive citizens in his life’s path. Clarence and Margaret brought into the world eight children, Bill (Phyllis) Breedlove, Mary (Kenny) Sisemore, Margie (Joe) Reese, Michael (Valarie) Breedlove, Marty Breedlove, Andy (Lyn) Breedlove, Ann (Todd) Frizzell and Kathleen Breedlove. Clarence’s kids wasted no time sharing the love he taught them. He was adorned with 26 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren. He is also survived by his trusted furry companion, Sally.

His love was teaching his family the art of treating everyone with love, respect and laughter. He was a good man who raised more children that just his eight. He drew everyone to laughter, and even in his final whispers, wanted his family to smile. His children embraced him and paused their busy lives to be his small children again in one love filled room one last time.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Alive Hospice at 1718 Patterson St., Nashville, TN 37203. They do amazing things.
