Clyde, a kind and sweet man, was born on March 18, 1933, to his parents, Clyde Harold Cannon Sr. and Jessie Delora Cannon, in Beaumont, Texas. As a young boy, Clyde was always helpful and kind to everyone. While he was attending Amelia Grade School, he would wake up every morning at 6 am so that he could get on the school bus early, and be there to open the door for the bus driver and ride the entire route on the bus. After graduating, Clyde enlisted in the United States Air Force, where he served in the Korean War. After serving his country, Clyde began work at DuPont Chemical in Orange, Texas. He worked there for over 30 years, and was proud of his career.

Clyde met the love of his life, Barbara Cannon, at a high school dance in May of 1950. They fell in love fast and married in September 15, 1950. The day they married was one of Clyde's fondest memories. They had three children together, Cheryl, Vickie, and Erlene. As a couple, Clyde and Barbara loved to travel. They travelled to 49 states, and Canada. They also enjoyed seven cruises together all over the world. Family was the most important thing to Clyde; his wife, children, grandchildren, and his dog, Tasha, meant the world to him.

Clyde enjoyed hunting, fishing, and playing golf. He also loved to watch the Texas A&M Aggies play some winning football! He spent a lot of time and energy in his collections of coins and guns as well. He loved to read, always had a book open somewhere. His faith was the passion in his life. Clyde was a member of United Pentecostal Church for 66 years. When he moved to College Station, he joined Victory Church and has been a member for 12 years. He enjoyed teaching Sunday school, and also helped on the Sunday School Bus picking up the children to take them to Sunday school. He was always a kind, giving, and sincere man, who wanted to help anyone.

Clyde will be missed dearly by his loving wife, Barbara Cannon; children and their spouses, Cheryl Springer and William Springer, Vickie Burnette and Don Burnette, and Erlene Allison and Garry Allison; 6 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.
