“Clyde” Clive J. Sullivan

June 26, 1954-June 29, 2001

HERMISTON — “Clyde” Clive J. Sullivan, 47, died Friday, June 29, at his residence in Hermiston.

Clyde was born on June 26, 1954, in Yakima, Wash., to Clyde and Delphia Daniel Sullivan. On April 16, 1993, he married LaSonja Mack in Miami, Okla.

Clyde was among the few who truly enjoyed his occupation as a truck driver. His job allowed him to enjoy the country side of America. When he was on the road, he often stopped to take pictures of places all across America that caught his eye. When the family got together, he liked to share road stories with them.

Clyde enjoyed spending time outdoors, where he would go to a river to fish or just enjoy the flow of the river. Also he enjoyed going out of target practice with his guns. The last couple of years he really enjoyed going to his church or having Bible study at home. When he was unable to get out to go to church, he looked forward to his visit with his uncle and brother in Christ Bud, and his friend and brother in Christ Curz, who came over and prayed and studied the Bible with him.

Clyde is survived by his wife, Sonja of Hermiston; daughter, Brandy Miller of Yakima, Wash.; stepsons, Mike and Marc Albee, both of Hermiston; stepdaughter, “Missey” April Mautista of Hermiston; brothers, James, Dairl and Charles, all of Yakima, Wash., Wayne of Yuba City, Calif., Alvie of Reno, Nev., and Benney Gomez and Timmy Gomez, both of Pittsburg, Kan.; sisters, Barbara Clayton of Bakersfield, Calif., Phyllis Luppino of Yakima, Wash., Lois Stradley of Fernley, Nev., and Delphia Skaggs of Pittsburg, Kan.; three stepgranddaughters; one stepgrandson; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

A funeral service was held Tuesday, July 3, at the Faith Church of God, 1611 Diagonal Boulevard, Hermiston. Burial will be held today at 3 p.m. at the Tahoma Cemetery, located at 1802 Tahoma Avenue in Yakima, Wash.

Those who wish to make memorial donations in Clyde’s name may do so to help pay for medical bills that Clyde incurred in care of Burns Mortuary of Hermiston, P.O. Box 289, Hermiston, 97838.
