January 28, 1955 ~ December 29, 2022

Born in: Atlanta, Georgia
Resided in: Decatur, Georgia

Robert Clay Wade of Decatur, Georgia, passed peacefully December 29, 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Robert worked as a jeweler for over 50 years creating unmatched original work. From an early age he also loved racing, from “races” with friends on Highway 78 as a teenager to competing in SCCA Autocross in parking lots to tearing up the track at Road Atlanta.

He loved his children most of all though. He strived to instill in them the values of curiosity, kindness, and generosity by embodying those aspects himself. He struggled with that at times, but never gave up on bettering himself and putting the needs of others ahead of his own. To the end he wanted to be a help to all and a burden to none.

He is survived by his former spouse Sherri Cameron and their son Jason and his former spouse Sharon Cho and their children Michael and Luna. He was preceded in death by his parents Dudley and Clay.

Memories Timeline


  1. For those who didn’t know him Robert Wade was a very gentle hearted person. He’s had his ups and downs but he was a beautiful person.
    When I was in the hospital for my first surgery I had to stay in recovery for a night he came in to see me and held my hand and kissed me on the forehead. I never forgot that. It was so comforting when I was in such an uncomfortable place.
    Jason also said he was there for every surgery I went through. I didn’t know because well he was knocked out. ???? it was really sweet and I’m thankful that Jason had the support. There were others who sat with Jason while I was in surgery and I do thank you all.
    I will miss him and I hoped to work on a jewelry project with him but I now have his jewelry bench and tools. So I guess in a way I will be making jewelry with him. He will be missed by many and always holds a place in my heart and many of yours.

  2. I had a wonderful conversation with him as we were planning our upcoming 50th class reunion. I am so sad not to be able to see him in person. He was always so kind to me.

  3. Robert was in my homeroom in high school. He was always kind and I took am sorry we won’t see him at our 50th high school reunion. Rest in peace, friend! ????❤️
