Obituary from the Daily Progress website:

Clyde Roland Inskeep, 88, of Rapidan, VA passed away at Dogwood Village Senior Living, Orange, VA on January 1, 2015. Born in Culpeper County, VA October 6, 1926 to Bernard Inskeep and Beulah Yowell Inskeep, his most cherished pleasure in life was spending time with his large and extended family at the beloved family farm.

Clyde was a quiet supporter of many social and economic interests in his community and was an active member of the Culpeper Lion’s Club and the Mitchells Ruritan Club. He was a member of Cedar Run Baptist Church, where he sang in the choir.

A lifelong farmer, businessman and sportsman, he was instrumental in bringing the Bull Run Hunt to Culpeper County in the1980’s. It gave him great joy to hear the cry of the hounds as he spent time with dear friends he made along the way. He would follow the hunt in his ‘command’ vehicle, many times having more success at finding foxes than the dogs, to the amusement of those riding with him.

He will be remembered by his family and friends for his generosity, his willingness to work hard and play hard, his love of fun and his frequent laughter, which spread to all who were in his presence.

Surviving Mr. Inskeep are his children, Janice Inskeep Willis and her husband Werter of Charleston, SC, Clyde Roland Inskeep, Jr. and his wife Paige of Rapidan, VA and Kelley Inskeep Johnson and her husband Eric of Keswick, VA; his grandchildren, Werter Larkin Willis and his wife Martinique, Zachary Inskeep Willis and his wife Jessica, Hunter Addison Willis and his wife Mierka, Jason Andrew Inskeep and his wife Lauren, Julie Inskeep Steele and her husband Kemper, Christopher Bryce Johnson and Tyler Scott Johnson.; and his great-grandchildren, Sophia Willis, Madison and Audrey Inskeep, Cameron and Caroline Steele. He is also survived by his brother, Russell J. Inskeep and his wife Hope. He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife Louise Hitt Inskeep and his siblings, B. Carlin Inskeep, James L. Inskeep, Helen I. Richardson, Beulah I. Lewis and Jessie I. Christensen.

Graveside funeral services will be held in Fairview Cemetery, Culpeper, VA, Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Lanny Horton conducting the service. The family will receive friends Friday, January 16, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00p.m. at Clore-English Funeral Home.
