Clarence Michael (Mike) Posey, 53, formerly of Clinton, always from Knoxville, TN., left this world Saturday, July 10th @ 4:45 p.m. after a long, brave battle with cancer.

Aunts: Ocie Talbott, Diane Burkhart and Glenda DePew. Uncles: Hank, Johnny, Dennis and Steve Sharp. Nieces and nephews: Danielle, Dylan, Emily, Benny and Haylee. We thank the cousins that were able to help us during this very difficult time: Johnny Rhodes, Ronnie Rhodes, Lesley Ferguson, and Beth Sharp.
