He retired from the City of Austin after 30 years. Retirement didn’t slow Clyde down as he traveled the United States for Marvin Helford as a fabricator. After that, he worked for roughly 9 years with the Travis County Sheriff’s Office. In his first year of employment he was awarded the very first civilian Employee of the Year Award. He then worked for 10 years at Covert Chevrolet where he retired in 2018. Clyde was a lifelong member of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rockne and a member of the 4th degree Knights of Columbus. Clyde was an avid deer hunter and enjoyed spending time with his hunting buddy, “PeeWee” Bartsch. One of his favorite things to do was traveling with his beloved wife Gloria and spending time with his family.
Clyde never met a stranger and all who knew him said he always had a smile on his face and gave the best hugs.

I am thinking of all of you and keeping y'all in my prayers. I remember Clyde from when I went to school at Rockne. He was such a nice, sweet person. He was in Mother's class in 4th and 5th grades. She was very fond of him and remembered his sweet smile.
