Clyde Whitman

March 21, 1941 ~ October 28, 2017

Clyde E. Whitman passed away at the age of 76 on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at Bridger Healthcare Community surrounded by family and friends.  He was born on March 21, 1941 in Bozeman, MT, the son of John and Pearl Whitman.  Clyde’s younger sister, Millie, and his parents precede him in passing.

Clyde lived on the Flying D Ranch in Gallatin Gateway, MT until the age of five and then moved to West Yellowstone where he became a life-long resident.  Clyde grew up working under the family business of Whitman’s Conoco, West Yellowstone’s first gas station, where he took on part ownership in the late 1970’s.  In 1981 Clyde entered a working partnership with Miller Ice company that still continues today.  Miller Ice was a hard-working family affair for Clyde, Susie, and their boys that resulted in a deep connection and many friendships within their community of West Yellowstone.

Clyde was a volunteer fireman and a member of the Old Faithful Masonic Lodge.  He enjoyed golfing, skiing, and the outdoors.  He was an avid West Yellowstone Wolverine football fan and his loyalty was rumored to have resulted in a few game ejections. 

Clyde is survived by his wife of 55 years, Susie; sons, Timothy Clyde and Robert John; grandsons, Austin and Hunter; and his sister, Connie.  Clyde will be remembered for his lasting friendships and for his loud booming voice welcoming you into the Whitman home (saloon).  As his many friends quoted, “Clyde was one of the good guys.”

A celebration of life will be planned for early May in West Yellowstone.
