Jeffrey Scott Clyde, 61, of DuBois, went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Tuesday, Oct.14, 2014, at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.
Jeff was born March 1, 1953 in Philadelphia to the late Robert A. and Claire K. Clyde.
He was a 1971 graduate of DuBois Area High School where he was a standout wrestler and offensive lineman. He then went on to Penn State University in DuBois where he continued his illustrious wrestling career for two years, eventually transferring to main campus and receiving a degree in accounting in 1975.
Jeff spent time as an auditor for Coopers and Lybrand before joining his father at Brockway Pressed Metals as a senior financial analyst. However, Jeff will be remembered in his community most as the smiling and ever wise-cracking owner of both Arby's of DuBois and Subways of DuBois and Brookville.
He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Yvonne Bradley Clyde of DuBois; his daughters, Jordan (Mike) Love of DuBois and Lindsay (Matt) Hicks of Harrisburg; two granddaughters, Addison Claire and Avery Quinn Love of DuBois; siblings, Deanne (Dick) Drass of Conway, S.C., Robert (Marianne) Clyde of Woodville, Va., and Melanie (Randy) Shepler of New Braunfels, Texas. Additionally, he will be missed by numerous nieces and nephews, as well as his trusted managers and employees.
Jeff will be remembered as a prominent local business leader who was voted DuBois' Favorite Boss in 2013 by the Courier Express. Over his tenure as owner of Arby's and Subway, he won numerous awards, including 1st place in the nation for Arby's mystery shops in 2006. He was also the former President of the Arby's Altoona/Johnstown Advertising Co-op. He was a lifetime member of the Penn State Alumni Association. Jeff's true passion in life was evangelism. He attended Jubilee Christian Center in Hyde and supported numerous local and international ministries, including the Projecting Hope film ministry in DuBois. Jeff was an ardent student of the Bible and, in particular, of Biblical prophecy, a topic on which he was sought out to speak on at numerous local churches.
Visitation will be held at the Adamson Funeral Chapel Inc. in DuBois on Friday, Oct. 17 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.
A celebration of life service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct.18 at the Tri-County Church of God with Pastor Terry Smith of Jubilee Christian Center officiating. Immediately following the service, a luncheon will be provided. Interment will be in Morningside Cemetery.
