Clyde Aldo Morrow, 76, passed away June 16, 2010, at his home in Upper Lake, after a short illness.


Clyde was born on Jan. 16, 1934, in Jay, Okla. He was the second oldest of four children.


In 1946, he moved to Lake County with his parents and brothers. Clyde graduated from Upper Lake High School in 1953. He served in the United States Army from 1954 to 1962 and the United States Coast Guard Reserve from 1971 to 1987. He was proud of his service to his country.


On June 1, 1960 he married Martha Rae Lane, and they recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They lived in Upper Lake and had three children.


Clyde was employed as a heavy equipment mechanic for Caltrans and retired after 31 years of service. There was nothing he couldn’t fix and he passed this knowledge and gift on to his son, Dan.


During his retired years, he enjoyed watching his grandchildren grow, surfing the Internet and gardening.


Clyde is survived by his wife, Martha, and three children: Dan Morrow, of Upper Lake, Calif.; Lisa (Matt) Fronsman, of Lakeport, Calif; and Mary (TJ) Maxwell, also of Upper Lake.


Additionally he is survived by his three grandchildren, Shannon Fronsman, and Amanda and Daniel Maxwell. He is further survived by his brother Ray (Cris) Morrow of Upper Lake, and numerous nieces and nephews whom he adored.


He was preceded in death by his brother, Jack Morrow, and his mother and father, Sidney and Lola Morrow.


A potluck memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 27, at his home, located at 885 E. Highway 20, Upper Lake. All are welcome to come and share laughs and stories of this most beloved man. A tree will be planted in his honor.


His family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to Hospice Services of Lake County, 1701 S. Main St., Lakeport, CA 95453.
