He was a member of Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church, where he served as the Menís Sunday School teacher and song leader. He found great joy in singing with the Susong Memorial Choir at the local nursing homes as long as his health permitted.

Clyde enjoyed living a simple farm life and was glad to help others in any way he was able. Serving the Lord and Savior he loved so dearly, spending time with his granddaughters and family gatherings always brought a smile to his face and were the joys of his life.

He was preceded in death by his parents L. H. and Hazel Johnson and a brother and sister-in-law Wayne and Linda Johnson.

The family will receive friends from 2:00ó4:00 and from 4:00ó6:00 p.m. Thursday, February 6, 2014, at Kiser-Rose Hill Funeral Home.

Following visitation, the funeral service will be conducted at 8:00 p.m. in the funeral home chapel with Rev. Martha Beamer officiating.

Interment will be at 3:00 p.m. Friday, February 7, 2014, in GreeneLawn Memory Gardens. Family and friends are asked to meet at the funeral home at 2:00 p.m. Friday to go in procession to the cemetery.

His pallbearers will be his nephews: Bailey Rader, Miles Kilday, Jody Shuffler, and Nick Kuehner.
