Clyde Ronald Perry passed away on Friday, Aug. 9, 2013. Clyde was still working in his tomato garden until Father’s Day when he became ill. He was 76 years old. Clyde was a descendent of two pioneer Solano County families: Perry and Davisson. His great-grandfather Andrew Jackson Perry traveled by ship from New York to Suisun in 1853. His great-grandmother, Elizabeth Cecilia Davisson came across the prairie in a covered wagon to Suisun in the early 1850s.
Clyde was born in the original Perry family ranch house on Cordelia Road. He attended Crystal Grammar School and Armijo High School. In 1955, Clyde joined the United States Navy for four years and served in the Pacific at Subic Bay, Philippine Islands; and visited Hong Kong, Japan and Guam.
After the Navy, Clyde returned to Suisun working in construction as a talented finish carpenter. He was a member of Carpenters Union Local #180. Clyde enjoyed country music from the 1950s and 60s, John Wayne, family pets and his classic Volkswagen Beetle. He was also an avid Giants and 49ers fan.
Clyde and his father Jack were members of the Solano Muzzleloaders Association.
Clyde is survived by his beloved daughter, Dawn Roberts, son-in-law, Roland of Fairfield; brother, Bruce Michael Perry of Davis; aunts, uncle and numerous cousins.
