Clyde Ryman Obituary
Clyde Eugene (Bud) Ryman, Jr. died on January 12, 2014 after a fourteen year battle with Alzheimer's. He was loved as a husband, father, grandfather, friend, and follower of Christ at Grace Presbyterian Church. Bud will be remembered for his strong work ethic, his self-driven will and his belief of doing things the right way with integrity.
Bud was born in Houston, Texas on December 4, 1924 to Clyde E. and Mabel Ryman. He was the oldest son of seven children. His extended family lived in Matagorda County, Texas. Bud grew up in Houston and graduated from Bay City High School and then served in the U.S. Navy during World War II for three years, two of which were on the U.S.S. Gladiator. Bud attended the University of Houston on the G.I. Bill and earned his bachelor's degree in 1951. He then became employed as an industrial engineer for F. J. Evans Engineering. His employment continued as a real estate broker, officing at Whitlow Steel. He later founded NuCarb Tool from which he retired.
On February 1, 1950, Bud married the love of his life, Peggy Ann Stansbury, from Houston, Texas, and they began their adventure in marriage for almost sixty-four years. Bud and Peggy raised three children, Chris, Craig and Chere. Bud loved the outdoors in his work and recreation. Bud's life was filled with hunting and fishing, cultivating gardens, traveling on vacation with his family, going abroad on his business ventures and living life with his love, Peggy Ann. He was known for moving houses, developing real estate and putting together the next "deal."
Bud was preceded in death by his son, Craig, his parents, as well as his sisters Frances and Betty and his brother John. He is survived by his wife, Peggy of Sugar Land, Texas, son Chris and daughter Chere of Houston, Texas, and six wonderful grandchildren, Audrey, Shane, Rachel, Sheridan, Katherine and Natalie and one great granddaughter Arlene Natkin. He is also survived by two brothers, James and Bill and one sister Joan.
