Clyde Standley was born in Forney, Texas on September 6, 1948 to Clyde Aubrey and Ruth Marie Thompson Brummett. He graduated from Van High School in 1969. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force and Air National Guard from 1970-1976. Clyde graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Auto Body and Paint from Eastfield College in 1980. He worked for several years as a foreign car mechanic and then retired as a metal press operator from Ennis Tag and Label in Wolfe City.
Clyde had a very big heart and he was known for doing things for friends and family. He was a gifted artist in painting and drawing, as well as being talented in carpentry. He loved classic cars and was able to begin restoring a 1981 GMC pickup truck and 1970 Barracuda before he passed. His other loves were drag racing, fishing, hunting, cooking pies and other wonderful foods, and Harley Davidson motorcycles—especially riding his own.
