Community Mourns The Loss Of James Clancy

SPOKANE, Wash. – A west Spokane community continues to mourn the loss of the man responsible for feeding so many from his produce stand after a car accident claimed his life.

According to police, James Clancy was driving his delivery van when he was t-boned at the intersection of Geiger and Thomas Mallen Road Monday morning. He died at the scene.

Most people who knew Clancy don't think about his time in the Air Force, or his 25 years driving a bus for the STA, but for the produce stand he operated for the past two decades on the corner of Ash and Maxwell.

Opening the stand in the parking lot of the Maxwell House Tavern, Clancy never turned away anyone who couldn't pay.

Most of the time he would send customers on their way with what they needed for free or for whatever money they had in their pocket.

Any money Clancy collected by selling his fruit and vegetables went right back into his neighborhood.

He donated all his earnings to groups like COPS West and the West Central Community Center.

Those who knew him best say that was just Clancy, a special person with a huge heart who will be missed by all who knew him.

Right now, the family doesn't know what's going to happen to Clancy's stand.

They hope someone will take over and continue giving in the community he loved so much.
