He and Nora Mae served faithfully for nine years in the Salt Lake Temple and later in the Washington DC Temple. He was a true Disciple of Christ, kingdom builder, great man of integrity, and wonderful Patriarch to his family.

Clyde loved life, lived it to the fullest, and made every minute count. He was not one for sitting on the sidelines. He treasured spending time with his family and giving service to all.
Our family would like to thank the University of Utah Hospital and Orchard Cove Rehabilitation Center for their tender care of our husband, father, and grandfather in his last days.
