James Clifton Brammer

August 17, 1926 - January 07, 2020

Clifton Brammer, age 93, was born August 17, 1926, in Floyd, Virginia, to Bub and Ora Correll Brammer (“Granny Duck”). The oldest of six siblings, Clifton served in the US Navy during WWII, during which time his father passed away. Except for his Navy time and brief training in Chicago following the war, Clifton lived in Floyd until 2013, at which time he moved to Arbor Ridge of Kernersville (NC) to be closer to his daughter. God called him home on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, at Walnut Ridge Assisted Living. Clifton’s greatest joy was teaching the Bible, which he did for over 50 years at the New Haven Baptist Church. He served as a deacon for those years as well as teaching Bible studies in his home, jail and prison ministries, and fill-in pulpit supply in the area. He was a great encouragement to many pastors and those in Christian service. He loved his family and had many close friends. He was predeceased by his parents; his wife, Eula Reed Brammer; and two brothers, Jack Brammer and Eddie Brammer. Clifton is survived by two daughters: Sharon Allred of Kernersville, NC; and Jo Anne Brammer of Weagamow Lake, Ontario, Canada. He was PaPa to two grandsons: Billy Allred (Priscilla) of Winfield, PA; and Jonathan Allred of Winston-Salem, NC; as well as four great-grandchildren, Gracelyne, Katherine, Aaron, and Nathan Allred of Winfield, PA. Two sisters survive: Betty Slusher (Bud) of Floyd; and Sue Young (Rev. Ronald) of Fincastle, VA; a brother, Billy Brammer of Floyd; as well as many nieces and nephews. Visitation will be at the Gardner Funeral Home in Floyd on Friday evening, January 10, 2020, from 6 to 8 p.m. The funeral will be held at the New Haven Baptist Church in Floyd on Saturday, January 11, 2020, at 11 a.m. with burial in the Jacksonville Cemetery in Floyd. The family is very grateful for the care provided at Arbor Ridge of Kernersville and Walnut Ridge Assisted Living as well as Hospice of the Piedmont.

Clifton will definitely be missed. I missed seeing him. He was a good fella who cared about everyone and was not biased. Everyone loved him. I am happy he is not suffering anymore and with the Lord now.

Clifton drove our family to church for many years, he always made us feel like family. He often made me feel like one of his children (even fussing at me from time to time). Sharon and JoAnn were such good role models to the youth in the church and I will always be grateful to them.
