Breedlove, Clarence Edgar, entered this world on June 21, 1928 being the son of the late, Lenzy Bell and Sadie May Tant Breedlove. Clarence lived an amazing 88 years and left us on November 5, 2016 surrounded by his children in the comfort of Alive Hospice in Nashville. Clarence retired from NES after 42 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Nashville. He was preceded in death by his lifelong soul mate, Margaret Hutton Breedlove. They were married for 56 years.

 

Clarence placed his carbon footprint by adding many productive citizens in his life’s path. Clarence and Margaret brought into the world, eight children:

Bill (Phyllis) Breedlove, Mary (Kenny) Sisemore, Margie (Joe) Reese, Michael (Valarie) Breedlove, Marty Breedlove, Andy (Lyn) Breedlove, Ann (Todd) Frizzell, and Kathleen Breedlove. Clarence’s kids wasted no time sharing the love he taught them. He was adorned with 26 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great grandchildren. He is also survived by his trusted furry companion, Sally.

 

His love was teaching his family the art of treating everyone with love, respect and laughter. He was a good man who raised more children than just his eight. He drew everyone to laughter, and even in his final whispers, wanted his family to smile. His children embraced him and paused their busy lives to be his small children again, in one love filled room, one last time.

 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Alive Hospice, 1718 Patterson Street, Nashville, TN 37203. They do amazing things.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Leon Russell, was born Claude Russell Bridges on April 2, 1942 in Lawton, Oklahoma and died November 13, 2016 at his home in Hermitage, TN. A birth injury to his vertebrae caused a slight paralysis on his right side that would shape his distinct musical style. His family moved upstate to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1953, where within a few years he began to play with various local bands and develop his musical skills that would eventually make him an in-demand session player in Hollywood and eventual rock and roll superstar.

 

In 1960, Russell made the trek from Oklahoma to Los Angeles to try and make it in the thriving music business. Too young to join the musician’s union which was required to play the union recording sessions, Russell worked the clubs up and down Los Angeles, along with Tulsa bandmates David Gates, who later formed the group Bread, and drummer Chuck Blackwell. On occasion the three would play live shows on the weekends with various recording artists, including an occasional gig with Country Music Hall of Famer George Morgan, father of country music singer Lorrie Morgan. Russell eventually got into the local musician’s union, where as a Hollywood session player Russell played on dozens of hit records, including “Monster Mash” by Bobby Pickett, “Mr. Tambourine Man” by The Byrds, “Surf City” by Jan & Dean, “Birds & The Bees” by Jewel Akens, “Day After Day” by Badfinger, “Help Me Rhonda” by The Beach Boys, “This Diamond Ring” by Gary Lewis & The Playboys, “Danke Schoen” by Wayne Newton, “A Taste of Honey” by Herb Alpert, and scores of others. Russell branched out in the mid-Sixties into other areas, and began to arrange and produce for other recording artists, accumulating several gold records for his work.

 

In 1969, Russell hooked up with British producer Denny Cordell to form Shelter Records and ventured out on his own as a solo artist, and has been actively touring and recording ever since.

 

In 1970, Russell captured the public’s attention as the top-hat wearing pianist and bandleader on Joe Cocker’s “Mad Dogs and Englishmen” tour. He earned the nickname “The Master of Space and Time” during this tour.

 

Russell went on to become a headliner throughout the Seventies, with his gospel-based good-timey piano style and unique singing voice. He wrote and performed hits like “Tightrope, “Delta Lady,” “Song For You” and “Superstar,” which have been covered by a host of artists, and are mainstays on singing shows like “American Idol” and “The Voice.”

 

With George Harrison and Bob Dylan, Russell was a prominent player in the 1971 “Concert For Bangladesh” at Madison Square Garden, which set the tone for future big charity concerts. The resulting recording won a Grammy for album of the year.

 

In 2011, Russell was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for his work as a musician, songwriter and producer.

 

Russell is survived by his wife of 38 years, Jan Bridges; daughters

Tina Rose Bridges and her fiancé, Rod Schindler, Sugaree Taloa Noel Bridges and her fiancé, Gianny Muller, Honey Bridges, and Coco Bridges; son, Teddy Jack Bridges and grandchildren, Payton Goodner, China Rose Goodner and Tiger Lily Schindler.

 

Funeral services, open to the public, will be conducted 1 p.m. CST Friday, November 18, 2016 at Victory Baptist Church, 1777 Tate Lane, Mt. Juliet, TN. Visitation will be private. Mr. Russell will then be transported to Tulsa, OK for public services there on Sunday, November 20, 2016 at 2 p.m. CST at the Oral Roberts University Mabee Center. Doors open at 1 p.m. CST.

 

Active pallbearers will be Steve Ripley, Noland O'Boyle, Skip Graves, Gianny Muller, Brandon Holder, Beau Charron, Mark Lambert, Jack Wessel and Paul Lee. Honorary pallbearers will be Elton John, John Cowan, Sam Bush, Jim Halsey, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, Tommy Lipuma, Bruce Hornsby, Kenneth Constantine, Chad Goodner, Bob Britt, Tom Britt, Matt Harris, Taylor Hanson, Willie Nelson, Bill Austin, Johnny Barbis , Harrod Blank, Chuck Blackwell, Bob Stinson, Steve Todoroff, T. Graham Brown, Jerry Dolezar, Jon Howard , Michael Johnstone, Mike Lawler, Mike Graham, Gailard Sartain, Gary Busey, Junior Markham, Jimmy Karstein, David Teegarden, Tommy Tripplehorn, Bernie Taupin, and Cameron Crowe.
