Jeremy “Sean” Lay


TAHLEQUAH — Services for Jeremy Sean Lay will be held on Friday, Jan. 17 at 2 p.m. at the Reed-Culver Chapel with Pastor Sam Driggers, father of Sean, officiating. Interment will held in Starnes Cemetery, next to his beloved grandfather, Dewey Clark. Online condolences for the family may be left at www.reedculver.com.

Pallbearers for Sean will be Tommy Lay, Benjy Clark, Troy D. Clark, Brett Clark, Jason Clark, and Alvie Clark. Honorary pallbearers include Jeff Clark, Angela Clark, Eddie Clark, and Chris Clark.

Jeremy Sean Lay was born on Dec. 6, 1975, in Muskogee, the son of Sam and Frances (Clark) Driggers of Naples, Fla. He attended school at home due to his health issues. Sean worked as a heavy equipment operator.

If you knew Sean, you knew he was just an Oklahoma country boy at heart. He was a fan of the great outdoors and days off were spent at the rodeo, fishing, or slinging a little mud. He adored his family and any time spent with them. Be it a holiday dinner or a quick cup of coffee, any chat with his granddad, Dewey, was really special. Sean was a Christian by faith.

He had a large heart and was kind and loving; unfortunately, it was not the strongest physically. His heart failed him slowly until the Lord called him from his earthly labors on Wednesday, Jan. 8 in Naples. Sean was 38 years old. He will be greatly missed by his many loving family and friends.

Sean is preceded in death by his grandparents, Dewey Clark and wife Helen and his second wife, Versie; three uncles, Harold, Rodney, and Raymond Clark; and one aunt, Janice Bernhardt.

Those left to cherish his memory include his beloved mother and father, Sam and Frances Driggers of Naples; and one brother’s family, Tommy Lay and wife Sara of West Palm Beach, Fla. His legacy lives on in the nephews and nieces he loved so well, Lance Corporal Wesley Kisela of Pensacola, Fla., Brittany Lay, Abbigail Lay and Samuel Lay; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and a host of friends and extended family from the Lays.
