Clay was born February 20, 1959, in Bainbridge, Georgia to Willis Jenkins Duke and Elaine Tipton Duke.

Clay was a man of many talents.  He worked as a nurse.  He could build anything he set his mind to, and he could fix almost anything you asked of him. He loved working on cars, camping, and being with family.  He was always thinking of ways to be inventive whether it was with tools or starting a business. He was always very supportive of people in his life and could make anyone feel like family even if he had just met them.

Clay is survived by his children, Jarred Duke of wherever his camper is parked, Kristina Beam (David) of Charlotte, N.C.; granddaughter, Millie Beam; brothers and sisters Jimmy Duke of Albany, Ga., Beverly Knight (Bill) of Cordele, Ga., Angela Carlisle (Mickey) of Attapulgus, Ga., Eric Duke of Plano, TX, and Keith Duke (Ashley) of Tallahassee, Fla.; girlfriend Lynn Venable of Easley, South Carolina; nieces and nephews; and great nieces and great nephews.
