William Bernard ('Bill') Clopton

M, ID# 23151, b. 22 September 1906, d. 18 July 2002
  • Note*: From his obituary: "Although Bill was a native of Richmond, most of his adult life was spent in the Northern Neck. An avid sportsman, his fondest memories were of times along the creeks and marshes of the Rappahannock River. He continued his stewardship to nature and a love of the outdoors by actively supporting a project to keep Simonson's Boat Ramp open. He was active in the Clopton Family Association, endowing many projects both in Virginia and in Great Britain always encouraging those of Clopton descent to remember their forbearers and gather together as a family. He was past president of the Richmond County chapter of Rotary International and continued to support their many philanthropic projects. A recent inductee into the Virginia Commonwealth University Founders Club, he endowed a scholarship to the School of the Arts in memory of his son. Many scholarships for deserving young people were also endowed by him through Saint John's Episcopal Church and Warsaw United Methodist Church, both of Warsaw; Saint Peter's Episcopal Church, New Kent and Chamberlayne Baptist Church, Richmond."12
