Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. Clyde served with the United States Marine Corp and is a World War II veteran. He also served an LDS mission and remained devout in his LDS faith throughout his life. He was a Livestock Broker and Woolgrower and he enjoyed his lamb chops cooked to perfection!
