OBITUARY - CLYDE EUGENE HOUGE

Clyde Eugene HOUGE, 86, passed away peacefully on the morning of September 26, 2009 at the home of his daughter in Mount Ayr, Iowa after a lengthy illness of congestive heart failure.

He was born in Ringgold County, Iowa on December 4, 1922. His twin brother, Carl Edward, did not survive the birth and he always wondered what his life would have been like, if Carl Edward would have walked through life with him.

Clyde was married to Phyllis Irene PACHA on January 2, 1943 in Maryville, Missouri, with Dick and Marge YASHACK as witnesses. Clyde always laughed that he had forgotten his billfold and Dick had to pay the minister.

Clyde worked in the gas station business in Diagonal, Iowa with his brother-in-law, Raymond PAYNE, and others. He quickly learned to be a good listener and to have very strong work ethics. He always tried to do 110% in all of his employments and passed this on to his children. He felt honesty and loyalty were treasures of the soul.

Clyde served in the United States Army and served in World War II as a tank driver. He was one of the first 120 men on Omaha Beach on D-Day. He had vivid memories of D-Day and was honored in the documentary, Lest Thee Be Forgotten. His proudest moments were serving his country. He was injured 30 days into the war and was sent to England to recuperate and finally was able to come home to Phyllis.

After leaving the military, Clyde was employed by the United State Postal Service as a rural carrier in Diagonal, Iowa and later as a city carrier in Tempe, Arizona after moving to Mesa, Arizona in 1966.

He was a man of few words but long on thoughts.

He taught his children right from wrong and to always be truthful no matter what the consequences.

Clyde is survived by his children, Patricia Ann REIDHEAD & husband Marvin of Mount Ayr, Iowa, Gregory Eugene HOUGE & wife Rhonda of Buckeye, Arizona, and Barbara Kay ARNETT & husband Darren of Chandler, Arizona; 8 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren; and one brother J. M. NEWTON of Marion, Iowa.

Clyde was preceded in death by his wife Phyllis; his parents Jeff & Maude (JONES) HOUGE; brothers Carl Edward HOUGE, Troyal THARP, Thomas THARP, Truman THARP, and a sister Elizabeth PAYNE.

A special Thank You to Hospice of Central Iowa for the care they provided Clyde during the last few months. His family will never forget their care and loving support.

Memorials can be made to Morris-Herrold Post #395, American Legion, in Diagonal, Iowa.
