Clyde lived a full life as a professional attorney at Hamilton and Faatz for over 52 years.  He graduated from University of Illinois in 1962 and received his law school degree from University of Illinois in 1965.  He was a member of the Phi Alpha Delta Legal Fraternity and Pi Kappa Phi Social Fraternity.

His love of the wild west and vast majestic views brought Clyde to Colorado for the majority of his adult life.  Not only was Clyde a successful attorney and lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, he was an adventurer traveling the world for hunting and great food; a cattle rancher and a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend to many.  In addition to his hunting and fishing hobbies, Clyde was always exploring new hobbies.  At the age of 75, Clyde started riding his mountain bike, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing.  Now he will be exploring other new adventures.  

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent in Clyde’s honor to your favorite cancer foundation, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Hope for Children Foundation, the National Rifle Association, or to a charity of your choice.

May he rest in peace.  He will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
