Mr. Clinton Billings Sr. was born July 19, 1948 to the late Walter and Christine Billings. He completed his earthly assignment on Wednesday, September 27, 2023.
He was educated through the Public Schools of Robeson County. He was a very active and faithful member of Turner Station AME church where he served as a trustee, usher, and choir member until his health prevented him from doing so. He would often reflect back on one of his former pastors, Rev. H.D. Sidbury as he was the man that encouraged him to take his family to church.
He was a member of the Masonic Lodge 397 and a proud volunteer fireman of White House Fire Department in Marietta, NC where he served until his health started to decline. Anyone who met Clinton, met a friend. He didn’t meet strangers. When he entered a room, he owned it. If you were in his presence, he was going to know your mom, your daddy, and where you lived before, he left you. He would often say “this isn't no cemetery, you'll wake up and talk.” He loved watching westerns and sitting on the porch. Every car that passed by, his hand went up in the air waving. He would say “ I got my mess right here beside me, if a stranger pops up and want to try something.” He would say “every now and then, I'll shoot across the field to let them know I’m not sitting alone.” His favorite football team was the Carolina Panthers. He loved to eat. He had a group of friends he would go out to eat breakfast with every Tuesday in Marion, SC. He enjoyed sitting around the table laughing and talking to his friends. Anyone who had a close relationship with Clinton knew he loved his children. He would always say, “I’m proud of my youngins.” He was a praying man. He loved the Lord and he didn’t care who knew it.
He was preceded in death by his father and mother, two sisters, Esther L. Billings, and Emma Bishop, two brothers, Earl Billings and Michael Bridget.
