Clarence Anderson "Andy" McBrayer

Mr. Clarence Anderson “Andy” McBrayer, age 66, of Columbus, Mississippi, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 28, 2013. A native of Louisville, MS and a graduate of Louisville High School, Andy retired from Mitchell Engineering (CECO) after 44 years of service. Andy married the love of his life, Carol Ann, in 1966 and moved to Columbus to start a family.
He was a longtime member of Sovereign Grace Baptist Church where he served as the Church Clerk for many years. He was a wonderful example of what a husband and daddy should be and loved his family. He was a quiet and unassuming man who served his Lord and is with him now. Andy was a man of his word who had character and integrity, teaching his children to always be kind and respectful to others.
He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Carol Ann Hisaw McBrayer; son, Scott McBrayer (Nici) of Homewood, Alabama; and daughter, Kimberly McBrayer Eubanks and her husband, Shay, of Atlanta, Georgia. He is also survived by his two beloved granddaughters, Kaitlin and Jordyn; 3 brothers, Eddie McBrayer, J.W. McBrayer, and Albert McBrayer; 5 sisters, Betty Fisher, Ann Jenness, Martha O’Shia, Margie Brown, and Peggy Pace. Andy also had an extreme closeness and love with his wife’s brothers and sisters and extended family who will miss him greatly.
The family will receive friends Friday evening from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Gunter and Peel Funeral Home located at 903 College Street in Columbus. Graveside services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 31, 2013 in Louisville, Mississippi at Crystal Ridge Baptist Church Cemetery, the same church where they were married.
