Tammie & family - My deepest condolences to you and your family. I met Ron in the late 70s also through work and cheering on the Agency's softball team. He was one of the nicest and sincerest individuals I have ever met. I too laughed at the thought of him being an "usher" at the Bayou.....such a gentle giant but did his job very well while always being a true gentleman. If you ever needed anything, he was always there to help.....and he truly meant his offer. He adored his family and you could just hear the happiness in his voice when talking about all of you. He will be truly missed by all who knew him. I pray for peace and comfort for all of you during this difficult time.

I'm 65 years old now, so please give me some slack on my recollections of Ronald "Ron" Terry Clay. I EOD'd (Entered On Duty) for the Office of Logistics, at the CIA, around October of 1975 and retired on September 1st, 2011, after 36 years. I knew Ron during my tenure at Langley, in Logistics. I did not work closely with him, but we crossed paths many a time. One of the amazing things I later found about Ron, was he worked at one of the famous, or infamous, if your prefer, venues in Georgetown D.C., as a "Usher" and/or somewhat "Bouncer", for the Bayou. If you saw him face to face - body to body, you would not think twice about messing with him, no matter what his demeanor! The irony of it all was . . . Ron was one of the most kind and most gentle souls I've never met. I had to pleasure to meet with Ron and his future wife (not 100% sure) at a place called T.T Reynolds on Main Street in Fairfax, and the last time at a building in Herndon VA (early 2000's), where I talked to Ron when he was contractor for a defense Agency. Softball - Employee Activity Association for the Agency. Ron could tag them, even though I don't think he was the fastest coming over the bases, he was someone to be reckoned with. Ronald Sborz has posted a comment here, in this remembrance site. Ahmen brother Ron, I knew you as well, and to all your brothers that came down from Pennsylvania to work with the Agency. Rest in Peace . . . Ronald Clay from WVA. Mountain Mama, is coming to embrace you in her bosom and God in Heaven. A photo included of Ron here when worked in the 1970's for the Bayou. My condolences to all his family and everyone who knew him.

Glenda, Dody, Tammy, and Timothy I'm so sorry for your loss of your brother Terry. My love and prayers are with all of you and your family during this difficult time. I worked with your Mother at Arnold's Shoe Store and I would pick her up some mornings to go to work. I remember one morning Terry had a big breakfast fixed and so I had breakfast with all of you. He had been home for a visit. I just loved all of your family very much especially your Dad kidding me all the time. I'm so sorry!!
