Clyde came to Pulaski in the early 1950’s and worked for Radford Arsenal, Virginia Tech, Haley Furniture Store and Long Airdox.  He also had his own businesses; Clyde’s Upholstery Shop and Van’s Service Center.  After retiring, he continued to work as the maintenance superintendent for Washington Square apartments and Pulaski Village. He is survived by his sister, Pearl Fields; three “precious” daughters, Gaile Doyle, Janice (Dan) Cheverton, Karen (Curtis) Porter; two grandsons, Jon Doyle  and Matt Doyle; step-grandson, Jonathan (Mary) Cheverton, two great granddaughters, Daisy and Journey Doyle, and many other cherished relatives and friends. Funeral services will be held Friday, November 3, 2017, at 11 a.m., at Seagle Funeral Home, with Mr. Dennis Kinnan and Mr. Sam McCracken officiating. Interment will follow in Oakwood Cemetery.  Visiting will be Thursday evening from 6-8 p.m. The family would like to say a special thanks to the physicians and nurses in the Lewis Gale Medical Center Surgical Intensive Care Unit for their professional and loving care.

Mr. Van was such a sweet and caring man. He helped me many times with appliances and a gas furnace. I first met him back in the early 80's while living in a apartment complex. I don't believe there was anything he couldn't fix.
To his daughters and family please accept my condolences. I know he will be missed terribly. I'm grateful I did get the pleasure of meeting such a nice man.
God Bless each of you.

I remember Clyde’s wide, sweet smile at Pulaski convention when I was a young girl. My mother, Millie Williams Riley, had grown up going to meetings with his parents, and she reminded us often of what great memories those were, so I felt like we knew him, too!
Wishing your family comfort for the remaining years without someone who undoubtedly shaped your life in many wonderful ways.
