Clyde B. Sherrod
“Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways” Psalms 128 was one of Clyde Sherrod’s favorite books in the Bible. Clyde transcended from this world to his heavenly home on Monday, November 26. Clyde will be greatly missed by his family and friends, of those are: his wife of fifty-seven years, Shirley Ann Hatcher Sherrod, his children: Thomas and Ruby Sherrod of Mulberry, Arkansas, Teresa and Wendell Still of Elma, Washington, Beverly and Ronald Cothran of Everton, Arkansas, Ramona and Kevin Cranford of Harrison, Arkansas, Steven and Theresa Sherrod of Pyatt, Arkansas and Amanda and Mike Sams of St. Joe, Arkansas, his four sisters: Ellen VanderJeugtt of Norfork, Arkansas, Pansy Ailing and Jean Hendrix of St. Joe, Arkansas, and Mae Perkins of Florida; and brother, Mike Byrd of Wyoming. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clifford B. Sherrod and Aletha Offie Cates Sherrod Byrd and Herbert Byrd, a brother, Tommy Sherrod and sister, Paula Fernadez, and his grandson, Zechariah Sherrod. Clyde was an avid fisherman and gardener. He spent many days and nights trolling the Buffalo and King’s Rivers, and motoring across Bull Shoals and Greers Ferry Lakes. However, his fishing did not only occur in the water as his passion was even greater for his role as a “fisher of men.” Clyde was a faithful member of the Body of Christ, attending and teaching Sunday School at the Mt. Hersey Full Gospel Church in Pindall, AR. He was extremely proud of his six children, twelve grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Clyde loved life and worked as hard playing as he did working, and he worked very hard in many jobs including his career as a Junior Operator at the Augusta Electric Company in Augusta, Arkansas, and the Boiler Operator at Cloud in Harrison, Arkansas. Clyde loved his country and was proud of his service in the navy in the Korean War aboard the Battleship USS New Jersey. He was an active volunteer of the Bruno-Pyatt School. Each May, he entertained students and faculty members with his harmonica on Frontier Day. He led students in Christmas Carols and hymns at Christmas and he attended as a guest speaker at Veterans Day celebrations. He also volunteered playing music at the Yellville and Flippin Nursing Homes as well as the Homestyle Assisted Living Center in Springdale, Arkansas. His life was an epic adventure.
There was a memorial service held Thursday, November 29, 2012 at St. Joe Community Building.
Graveside service followed at Osbourne Cemetery at St. Joe, Arkansas.
