Rest in Peace, my dear friend. I rejoice with you being with our Heavenly Father. Thank you for serving our Country when we were at war. I am incredibly grateful for the many years of your friendship. Someday it will again be renewed. Thank you for the wonderful memories of the years gone by, including going back to the days when you were a baseball player for the Humble Oilers. Your smile and the sound of your voice will always be missed.

RIP Clyde
I worked with Clyde at Exxon he was a good man
and after retirement all the old timers Riggers would
congregate at crackle barrel for breakfast once a month.
Clyde was the last of the original Old Timers I guess we are
are the Old Timers now.
RIP Buddy

One of my fondest memories of Uncle Clyde was when I was four years old. He took Mary Ann and me fishing on Drunkards Branch on my dad's property. Not a very big fishing hole at all. We had recently seen Disney's Pinocchio movie and I was totally convinced that we would catch a whale from that little fishing hole, one as big as in the movie. Of course, in Uncle Clyde's teasing fashion, he went right along with my belief and carried on with me about it the whole time. He was always jovial and fun loving. He will be greatly missed. Love you Uncle Clyde. Fly high!
