Clyde A. Miner was born in Warm Beach, Washington, on February 26, 1935, to Jerry and Lola Miner, and passed away peacefully on November 1, 2021. Clyde spent his childhood enjoying all that Puget Sound beach life was like He spent time in nearby Stanwood, where he graduated from Twin City High School. After graduating in 1954, he worked at Twin City Foods and then joined the Army, where he was stationed in Fort Sill, Oklahoma and Fort Ord, California. After his discharge from the army, he attended Everett Business College and met his first wife, Catherine Kiefer. Clyde and Catherine were married in August 1962. Clyde and Catherine had two sons: Gregory, born in 1966, and Paul, born in 1971. Clyde enjoyed spending time with the family on the idle farm, driving the Farmall tractor and doing various projects. Clyde worked for a local finance company and joined the local Army Reserve Unit, where he ended up working as a civilian employee. Clyde was determined to serve his country as both a federal civil servant and a 37-year-old Army reservist. During his career, he reached the rank of Chief Warrant Officer Four. He received many awards that he was incredibly proud of.
Clyde began the second chapter of his life when he married Margaret Rozell on Valentine’s Day in 1987. Over the years, Margaret and Clyde spent time with their blended family. After retiring in 1995, Clyde and Margaret lived between their homes in Everett and Whidbey Island. They enjoyed traveling while making trips to the Southwest and Southern United States, as well as Europe. Clyde was active in his church, WSU Beach Watchers and Lions Club International. He was always there to help the children when needed or just to have a long conversation on the phone. Clyde’s dry sense of humor, lots of stories, his friendly demeanor and his genuine love of life will miss family and friends very much. Clyde was a faithful servant of Jesus Christ and has rejoined his Lord.
