Clyde was born on August 23, 1925 in Giltner to Edward and Alice (Sundermeier) Obermeier. He was raised and received his education in Giltner, graduating in 1942.
On August 23, 1947, Clyde was united in marriage to Rita Kline at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Harvard. He wanted to be married on his birthday so he would not forget their anniversary.
Clyde was a long-time member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Giltner and a member of the Knights of Columbus. As a hard-working farmer, Clyde was also a loyal John Deere customer.
As an avid bowler, Clyde was on as many as three different leagues at the same time, and has also competed in both state and national tournaments. In October of 1996 Clyde finished 1st in his Class A division at State which qualified him for the 1997 National Senior Men’s Bowling Tournament in Reno, NV on May 17 and 18. Clyde finished 5th in his Class A division for bowlers age 70 and over, plus 14th overall at Nationals out of a total of 183 bowlers. Clyde, who was 72 at the time, started bowling 45 years ago in 1952. In his later years, Clyde enjoyed putting together jigsaw puzzles and word puzzles, plus collecting John Deere memorabilia.
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 72 years, Rita; children, Steven (Norma) Obermeier and Janice (Richard) Morse; five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; brother, Melvin (Maryellen) Obermeier; and sister, Lucille Hunnicutt.
Clyde was preceded in death by his parents; sister, RoseMary (Calvin) Hansen; brother-in-law, Gerald Hunnicutt and daughter-in-law Anita Obermeier.
Memorials are suggested to the family for later designation.
