Clyde passed away on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at the age 90. He was preceded in death by his wife of 44 years, Amy. Left to cherish his memory are his children Kim Strout, Greg Strout, and Jan S. Gilbert; his daughter-in-law, Susan E. Strout; his grandchildren, Alex and Seth Strout; plus numerous nieces and nephews.

Clyde was born on November 4, 1927 in Poland, Maine. At age 13 he earned his driver's license and worked as a chauffeur after school. He enlisted in the Air Force after graduating from high school. Clyde's first assignment was setting up radar stations around New England, and consequently ended up in communications for the remainder of his 31 year military career. Clyde became a Mason and after retirement it became his vocation, eventually earning the 33rd degree.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations may be made to the Shriners Children's Hospital.
