A while back, we got an email from May Koenig, telling us she has a picture of her grandfather, Clyde W. Day in uniform. She sent it in, and Bill added it to this site’s crewlist. I then asked her if she could tell us a little about him.
Her reply: “He was one of my favorite people ever. I am named after his sister. He was compassionate, honest, hard-working, and a great example to everyone in our family and beyond. He was an engineer after he left the Navy, and after retiring, he ran a clock repair business until he was 95! He volunteered thousands of hours with the local hospice and other organizations, and was a pillar of the community. Here is a link to his obituary if you’d care to read it http://www.kingsvillerecord.com/obituaries/clyde-wickliffe-day/article_08b26078-920d-11e9-9770-07e4c3e97d6c.html
