Clyde Allen Martin (September 22, 1945 – August 8, 2022)
August 17, 2022
Clyde Allen Martin, 76, of Landusky, MT passed away at his home on August 8, 2022. He was born September 22, 1945, in Lewistown, MT to Harold E. and Amy L. (Larsen) Martin.
Clyde and his siblings grew up around Roy, MT. In his younger years he and his twin sister, Carolyn, would trail cows for Joe Murphy; nearly 15 miles, on foot! After graduating high school from Roy in 1963, Clyde enlisted in the US Navy and served from 1963-1966. In 1968, he enlisted again, this time in the US Army, and served until 1988.
Following his honorable discharge, Clyde went to work for the Mayflower Retirement Community. He applied for the janitor position but considering his experience as an Army Medic and Nurse he was hired as their LVN (Licensed Vocational Nurse) instead.
Clyde had a wide range of interests and talents. He built his own home, adding rooms over the years. He enjoyed gardening, macramé, and crocheting. He took the time to teach his granddaughter-in-law, Haleigh, how to crochet snowflakes and many other things.
He was a loving father and grandfather who was always making new friends and helping anyone he could. His grandchildren have fond memories of going to Lancaster at Christmastime, geocaching, looking for "water" in the desert, and camping in Morro Bay. Clyde was always up for the next adventure. He went to Universal Studios with his granddaughter, Kacie, when she was so little she was only allowed on one ride, ET. Clyde took her on that ride probably 50 times and made it the best day.
Clyde is survived by his daughter, Cheryl Robinson (Gordon); grandchildren, Kacie Douma (Haleigh) and Cassidy Robinson (Caitlyn); great-grandchild, Xavier Robinson; siblings, Les Martin (Jo), Kenny Martin (Viv), Carolyn Askins, Dave Martin (Carol), Terry Dean Martin (Edna), Earl Martin (Dianne), Bill Martin (Kim) and Rob Martin (Charlotte); and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Jack Martin; sisters, Cheryl Martin and Bonnie Hayes.
A Graveside Service will be held Saturday, September 24, 2022, 11:00 a.m. at the Lewistown City Cemetery.
