Clayton Alexander Bissett, 30

Clayton Alexander Bissett (Wilmington Funeral & Cremation)

WILMINGTON — Clayton Alexander Bissett is now with his Lord and Savior in eternity, having passed away peacefully with family at his side on Wednesday afternoon, May 22, 2024 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington. Clay was born at Cape Fear Memorial Hospital in Wilmington, NC on Friday, July 2, 1993.

Clay is survived by his parents Richard Alexander and Connie Grace Bissett, his brothers John Sanders Bissett (Lindsey) and Gary Joseph Roberts (Jessica), his sister Leah Margaret Bissett (Bridges), nieces Alexandria Rose Bridges and Isla Arena Bissett and nephews Erik Walter Bissett and Dean Wylie Roberts. He is predeceased by his paternal grandparents (John Richard and Wyona Alice Bissett) and his maternal grandparents (John Wylie and Margaret Eleanor Porter).

Clay was loved unconditionally by his family, as he loved us. Clay had his periodic struggles and challenges on this earth, as do we all, but he was comfortable living “off the grid” and living life the way he chose. He was known for his kindness to others, his loving heart, and especially his joyous humor. He was a very exceptional musical talent, and from an early age, played for family and friends as well as at weddings, festivals, and graduations. Clay earned his G.E.D. from Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington and was a graduate of Florence-Darlington Technical College in Florence, SC where he earned his Commercial Driver’s License. Clay has left a hole in our lives, but we are comforted in knowing that Clay gave his life to Jesus Christ at an early age, and we have the blessed assurance that although he will not return to us, we will go to him.

We will have a “celebration of life” ceremony at Peace Baptist Church (320 Military Cutoff Rd, Wilmington) at 7 PM on July 2, 2024. Everyone who knew Clay or the family is welcome to attend.

The family would like to express our sincere gratitude to the ICU unit at NHRMC (Dr. Odunusi and the Nurses) for their exceptional professional care for Clay after an anaphylactic shock and subsequent cardiac arrest episode resulting from a severe peanut allergy.
