Jul. 16, 1965 Fort Worth Tarrant County Texas, USA
Son of Homer Clay & Georgia Cruse.
Uncle Sterling served in World War I.
He was an auto mechanic by trade and passed from death to life at age 68.
Cause of death: subarachnoid hemorrhage (or Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status. There is no "accident" listed on his death certificate, so possibly his was caused by an aneurysm??? I know he was in the hospital several times due to blood clots.
My Uncle Sterling was a quiet man. I wasn't around him much when I was growing up. I do know he was extremely talented. He made all sorts of miniture wooden items,from farm equipment to auto. He could make anything he set his mind to, and they all had working parts.
He was so talented that his miniture collection was on display at one of the area museum's in the Fort Worth area. I wished I could find out where because they would be a treasure for his grand neice's and nephew's to know.
