Clyde entered the world smiling in the Rocky Mountain city of Fernie, B.C. on May 19, 1958 and departed on April 16, 2023, in the U of A Hospital after succumbing to cancer.
Clyde’s career was mostly at the City of Edmonton, where he made many lifelong friendships, maintained even after retiring in 2019.
Clyde had a big heart, and a keen enthusiasm for friends and family, aviation, all things musical, 1960’s TV shows and up until a few years ago, motorcycling.
He was pre-deceased by both parents and is survived by his daughter April, two brothers, Clayton (Odette), Trevor (Laurie), nieces Kathleen (Curtis) and Heather (Mark), and nephew Patrick (Kylee),
grand nephews Leo, Wes, and Lucas, grand niece Mikayla were always a focus of his affection.
Cremation has taken place with a private interment planned for a later date.
Clyde had requested that a formal service not be held, but perhaps next time you look up, you might see him flying around!
He took joy in a daily dose of the CKUA Radio Network, his charity of choice.
Our family is grateful to his physician Dr. Chiu, everyone at the Cross Cancer Institute and the U of A Hospital Unit 3D3 for the extraordinary care and comfort they provided to both Clyde and us.

  19. I am so sorry for your loss. Clyde started as my boss and ended as my friend. I will always remember his bad jokes and kind heart. You will be missed my friend.

  20. I worked in the same branch as Clyde at the City for many years. He always had a smile and a friendly manner. In fact, over all the years I knew Clyde, I’m not sure I saw him treat anyone with anything but care and respect.

  21. I worked with Clyde for many years at the City. He always had a smile and a good word. Throughout all his time I knew him at the City he always treated everyone with respect. He was missed by the City when he left and will be missed even more now that he moved on.

My condolences to the family.

  27. Damn sad to hear about ol’ Clydestrum. I called him that because he was always strumming that bass. I’ve known Clyde since he was a tall lanky kid in high-school, and we’ve been friends ever since. All my best to Clayton, Trevor, April, and the rest of his family.

  28. My Dear Friend: It is a tough day to hear of your passing. Both Rick and I will miss all the football story fighting between the three of us over the years. This will be missed by us. But the one game I will miss is when the Riders would play your new team last year the B.C, Lions and the bantering would start. My Condolences to your family from my family. I will miss you greatly my friend.

    Sincerely, Wayne Gelmich,

  29. My deepest condolences to the Lindstrom family. Clyde was the reason I stayed working for the City of Edmonton for as long as I did. So when he left as my Supervisor, I gave my notice.

RIP Clyde, you are deeply missed.
