WILMINGTON — Clyde K. “Kendrick” Farmer, 37, passed away Monday, Dec. 7, 2020, at his residence.

Kendrick was born Jan. 10, 1983, at New Hanover Memorial Hospital, Wilmington, to Clyde Keith Farmer and Lynette Thompson Farmer.

He is survived by his parents; son, Dorian Gray Farmer; former wife, Maria Diaz; sister, Johanna Hill, and her husband, Brad Hill; and niece, Lynette Hill.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Albert Ray Thompson, Wilma Welch Thompson, Allen Houston, Marguerite Hardie Houston, Clyde Grover Farmer and Mary Ellen Farmer.

He graduated from E.A. Laney High School in 2001 as a member of the National Honor Society. He was a graduate of the University of North Carolina Wilmington, summa cum laude, with a double major in criminal justice and sociology. He worked for many years at Harris Teeter and later Vocational Rehab of North Carolina. He lived in Wilmington his entire life.

He enjoyed spending time with his son and his cats (Domino and Little Boy), watching TikTok videos, Netflix, spending time with his friends and making and eating unique culinary dishes. He had a dry sense of humor and was known for being facetious. His unique personality, sense of humor and clothing style are infamous among all who knew him. He was extremely generous and thoughtful to everyone in his life and practiced random acts of kindness. He loved perusing for gifts to pass along to his son, niece and family.

A memorial service will be held in his honor after the COVID-19 pandemic has ended and it is safe to gather again. He will be buried in the Thompson Family Cemetery, Whiteville.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his honor to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
