FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Family and friends said goodbye to a construction worker killed in a trench collapse earlier this week at Fort Bragg.

WTVD-TV reported that Clyde Nettles’ funeral was held Saturday at Cape Fear Conference B Headquarters.

The 22-year-old civilian contractor died when a 15-foot deep trench caved in on him.

He was installing pipes at the Post’s ammunition supply point at the time.
