He met his wife, Joan, and they were married on July 6, 1957. He served in the Army for two years and was honorably discharged in 1960 with the rank of corporal. Clyde worked many jobs, but eventually settled on a career as a caretaker. Clyde was well known for being a conscientious and gifted gardener. Clyde and Joan worked hard to achieve success, acquired a nice piece of property in Otter Creek, and invested a great deal of time rebuilding their house.
Clyde was an avid outdoorsman: during summer he could often be found fishing next to a stream, and during winter on a pond ice fishing. He spent most of November deer hunting, and was usually successful. In recent years, Clyde enjoyed spending time at his camp in Harmony, and visiting with his friend, Earl Lawlor. He had a special relationship with his niece, Kathy Sennett, also of Harmony. Clyde’s life was well-spent spending time with the family he loved and pursuing the activities he enjoyed.
Clyde is survived by his wife, Joan; son, Carl and his wife, Kristen; son, Mike and his wife, Donna; two grandchildren, Mandy and Erin; his sister, Charlotte Carter-Cormier and her husband, Al; his sister, Sheila Sennett; and many nieces and nephews.
