Clyde Verl Thompson, age76 died December 30, 2015 at his home after losing his battle to cancer. He was born in Vernal, Utah March 21, 1939 to Laura Harrison Thompson and Verl Thompson. Clyde enjoyed life in general, if he was on the mountain he was a happy camper. Growing up he was his Grandpas sidekick herding sheep up on the mountain. He became a wonderful cowboy and loved working with the Allen family in Browns Park, there he meet the love of his life Velma. They married May 23, 1964, and started their family. He was a jack of all trades, he found pleasure in wood working, fishing, camping and having his family around.
