Stephen Dewitt “Butch” Click, 75, of Cleveland, NC died at his home surrounded by family Thursday, Sep. 16, 2021.

He was born on May 5, 1946 in Davie County to the late Clarence Dewitt Click and Frances Wall Click.

He held membership at Edgewood Baptist Church for the majority of his life, where he spent years serving as head usher and took pride in maintaining the lawn. He joined Cleveland First Baptist Church upon relocating to Cleveland with family. While he had a quiet demeanor, he was a fierce prayer warrior, often naming each family member’s needs and praying for their safety. He was known for his kindness, gentle nature, and his undeniable love for God and family. He committed to making each family member feel special; some of their fondest memories include him taking his nieces and nephews to storytime at the library, playing at the local park, and teaching them practical skills such as how to count change and tell the time. He loved listening to music for hours, particularly his favorite, Elvis Presley.

He was also preceded in death by his nephew, Michael Click.

Survivors: his sister, Kay Settle and her daughters, Felecia McSwain and Stephanie McClannon (Johnny); his great-nieces and nephews, Olivia Morgan (Matthew), Brandon McSwain (Maddie), Joshua McSwain (Emily), and Zoë McClannon, all of Cleveland; his brother, Mike Click and his daughters Tracey Click and Michelle Click; his great-nephew, Ean Click of Mocksville; and Dianne Sain (Dean), his cousin and bonus sister of Troutman.

Family and friends celebrated his life at 3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 18 at Lambert Funeral Chapel in Mocksville, with the Rev. Kestler Ruth officiating. A visitation followed the service.
