I also worked with Clyde at Martins. At the old store on Tri-County! And when they built the new store I worked with him there also. He was an awesome person. Always has a smile on his face. I remember all the different kinds of jerky he would make and bring in. He usually sold it for 5 dollars a baggie full. The kids that worked there especially loved it. They couldnt wait for him to make it and bring it in. My heart goes out to the family of Clyde and my thoughts and prayers are with you!! Nancy Smith!!

At 8 am each morning Clyde would come thru the doors at Martins with a smile as bright as the sunshine. I remember the hogs he would bring in, and like Dolly they were almost disgusting. But he made them look so pretty by the time they left. The funny story I have is when 2 sweet little elderly ladies had a wild goose someone had given them. (Out of season) and Clyde quickly hustled it out back so as not to get anyone in trouble. He dressed it and brought it back the next day and the ladies were so happy. That was Clyde, always pleasing us all. He will be so missed. Blessings to the family. Mary Bradford

I worked at Martin's Super Valu when Clyde worked there. One of the things i'll always remember was how Clyde did some catering and would bring a WHOLE HOG in and display it in the meat dept......hated looking at that thing....lol....anyway he was a very nice man and always concerned for you if something was wrong. My sympathy to the family
