Clyde David Harper, 71, Sandusky, passed away on Thursday, May 6, 2021. He was born on December 28, 1949 in Anderson, SC to his beloved late mother, Christine Harper.

Clyde attended Perkins High School, Sandusky, and shortly after graduation in 1969, he was drafted to into United States Marine Corps to serve in the Vietnam War. Clyde was honorably discharged in 1975 as a Lance Corporal.

A proud member of the VFW and American Legion, Clyde was well-loved in the city of Sandusky. There wasn’t a place locally that someone didn’t know his name.

I send my condolences and prayers to the Harper Family. I worked with Clyde at Sears. As for bowling, he had his swagger and knew he could bowl. Many are the fond moments I have of Clyde. Wesley Alexander

I met Clyde in school. My brother and I were in the same homerooms during our years in the Perkins school system. I will always remember Clyde’s smile and his quite voice. Like many kids in school I was picked on, as was my brother, and I know Clyde was also. But when my brother wasn’t by me Clyde would walk with me if he was heading in the same direction. Another school class mate was Tony M.. we were all good friends. After graduating, I would see Clyde from time to time and we would stand and talk like no time had passed by. I missed not seeing him during the shut downs at the OVH due to COVID-19. Clyde, I will always remember you, your smile, and my friend. We will see each other again my friend. From your classmate, Patricia Thompson, Sexton. And- My brother, Capt Patrick Thompson classmate. Thank you for your service.
