Thank you for sharing his service with us Brent and Travis. Words can not do justice to the man Clyde was. I loved him deeply. He was my favorite Uncle and his advice, compassion, love, and insight always comforted me in difficult times. His sense of humor was devious, corny, and surprising. He and I used to share bad jokes in person, over facebook, and on the phone. His authenticity and generosity was inspiring to me. The suffering he went through during his childhood would have broken anyone, but he persevered and came through it a more patient, loving, and thoughtful man. My Dad really liked Junior too. He wasn't perfect, nor did he pretend to be. He was humble, honorable, and trustworthy to most who truly knew him. He would give the shirt off his back to help others and defend his family and friends from anyone who would do them wrong. I looked up to him, I loved him, I listened to his stories in awe (even when repeated), and cherished the moments I got to spend in his company. I will miss him dearly. I'm overjoyed to know that he is laid to rest next to Mom. He selected that space for Mom. She loved him so much. He protected her growing up, and now they can watch over one another. I'm so sorry that we all couldn't be there due to this disease, but I am so grateful you shared this experience with us virtually. As soon as things are safe, I will come pay my respects and give you guys some proper hugs. I love you both and your families. Please stay safe and watch out for everyone. My deepest sympathies, Your cousin Paul

Clyde was a manager in our Springfield Babe Ruth League and he always did a good job with all of the duties expected of a manager. He taught his players the fundamentals of baseball but more importantly, he taught them their responsibility of being a team member. As league president, I could always count on Clyde to timely submit anything requested of our managers and he took responsibility for getting his players to participate in fundraising events and he did a great job of getting parents to operate the concession stand Finally, his teams were always under control and our league never had to worry about any of his players embarrassing us with negative conduct. Clyde was indeed a friendly person who took his role as a manager very seriously. His players did it the right way and had some fun doing so. To his family, especially Brent and Travis, whom I knew, I am very sorry for the loss of your father. As you know, he was a very good man and he will certainly be missed. Please know that we remain very grateful for his successful tenure as a manager in our league. He was fun, dedicated and an all around great guy!

Brent, Amy, Travis, Jodi and families, I couldn’t be sadder to lose my brother and I know this is a deep sadness for you as well. He loved y’all so much and was a very proud dad, grandfather and great grandfather. We “fought” over who had the best kids, grandkids and great grandkids! Of course, there was no conceding as it was a draw! I love all of you.

- Angie & John Fowler, Tuesday December 15th, 2020

Hello, thanks for anyone who will post condolences here for my Dad but can we please not leave anything negative towards anyone else. My Dad would not want these kind of comments being left on here. I appreciate anyone who cared about my Dad but please this is not the place to make negative statements.
