Belgrade- Clive V. Hatt Jr. entered his eternal home on February 25, 2017, at the age of 87; after a period of declining health.\r\n\r\nClive was born on July 23, 1929 in Patten, Maine the youngest of five children of Clive V. Hatt Sr. and Carrie Kilgore.\r\n\r\nHe was born again on August 18, 1964, upon accepting Jesus Christ as his personal savior. On August 17, 1946, he married the love of his life, Geneva Finson, whom he lovingly referred to as his Queen. Together, they established a warm and loving home in Belgrade with their children Brenda and David and lovingly instructed them in the ways of the Lord, and to honor their parents. \r\n\r\nFrom a young age, Clive spent his life as a professional truck driver, driving millions of miles without having a single accident. He also was a driving instructor for companies he worked for. Clive retired from the Teamsters after having driven for Capitol Motors, Spector, and Carolina Freight. After retirement, he and Geneva started C&G Hatt Transport. \r\n\r\n Clive was very proud to have served his Country in the U.S. Army, as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne, the last of the Gliders.\r\n\r\nHe had a lifelong love for flying and jumping and enjoyed his private plane. Clive’s other hobbies were traveling in the motor home, motorcycling, boating, camping, BUT, the very Best of which was serving God and telling the old, old, story of Jesus and His love.\r\n\r\n Clive was predeceased by his parents Clive and Carrie Hatt; siblings, Glynnis Pond, Geraldine Sherman, Pauline Howes, and Richard Hatt; niece Laura Pond; nephew Donnie Howes; and his precious daughter- in-law Arlette D.
