A private graveside service will be held Wednesday, July 6, 2022, for Clifford Ware Corder with Rev. Dennis Robinson officiating. Webb & Stephens Funeral Home-Downtown is honored to be entrusted with arrangements.
Mr. Corder was born March 29, 1930, in San Antonia, TX and passed July 1, 2022, at his residence in Meridian, MS.
Clifford retired from the United States Navy in 1984 after 36 years of service where he served in the Construction Battalion, also known as the SeaBees. He was also a two-time Vietnam veteran. He loved being outdoors and enjoyed fishing and shrimping when on the coast. He was an avid fan of the Texas Longhorn, a passion that he and his wife shared. More than anything, he loved his grandchildren, teasing them whenever he could. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by his children, Donna Irby, Bubba Corder, and Mark Corder; grandchildren; Travis Irby, Jeremy Corder, Matthew Corder, and Morgan Corder; and great grandchildren, Harley Irby, Joe Irby, Jordon Corder, Jayden Corder, Remi Corder, and Jasper Corder.
He is preceded in death by his loving wife of 68 years, Viola Ave Nell Corder; and his parents, Robert and Mary Corder.
