Clyde Odell Duplissey Jr., went home to be with his Lord and Savior Tuesday, September 26, 2017. He is survived by his loving wife, Kathy Duplissey; daughters, Anne Carter and Catherine Loughlin and husband, Pecos; brother, John Duplissey and wife Meridee; sisters, Mary Boswell and husband, Peck, Yvonne Love and husband Marshall and Denise Atkinson; brothers-in-law, John Lee and wife, Joan and Jimmy Roark and wife, Pauline; grandchildren, Lane Loughlin, Colton Loughlin, and Avery Carter; and a host of many other family and dear friends.
Clyde was born in 1946. He graduated from the University of Houston receiving a BA in Political Science. Clyde proudly served his country in the US Air Force from 1969 through 1973 and was a staff sergeant serving in Vietnam. He was a past member and President of the Pearland Lions Club. Clyde was hardworking in his careers in procurement positions for major engineering and construction firms including Bechtel and Worley Parsons. He was passionate in caring for his children and family, especially his three grandchildren. Clyde especially loved good food, hunting and fishing and has passed on the legacy of hunting and fishing to his grandsons. His greatest joy was sharing his passion for fishing with other young people and seeing the beauty and awe of God’s creations. Clyde was the epitome of love and a truly gentle man who was forever helping those in need. He was genuinely interested in the lives of other people. Clyde will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
